Neath skipper Gareth Llewellyn, the grand daddy of Welsh forwards, is in line to extend his Welsh cap record for a pack member at Twickenham on Saturday.
The 33-year-old has been elevated from the Wales A team to take Ian Gough's place among the replacements following the Newport lock's failure to pass a fitness test.
If Llewellyn makes it onto the field then he will win his 65th cap. He made his debut as a 20-year-old against New Zealand in 1989.
If Wales coach Steve Hansen gives him a run then he will become the longest surving international player in the world today - even beating his former NEC Harlequins team mate, the England prop Jason Leonard, who was first capped in 1990.
A veteran of nine previous games against England, the man who led Wales on seven occasions was a winner against the auld enemy in 1993.
Llewellyn won his last cap in the 1999 World Cup, against Samoa and could aim for a third World Cup in Australia next year.
Nearly 40 players were involved in the first Wales Under 18 training session of the season. WRU National Performance Manager Gethin Watts is excited at the potential shown by the group and expects the Regional Under 18 Championship to hone their skills even further.
