Lynn Howells, the Wales coach, has made 14 changes to the side that beat Japan 64-10 at the weekend for today's game against the Pacific Barbarians in Tokyo.
The Llanelli wing Mark Jones is the only survivor from the first Test in a side that will be captained by the Bridgend lock Chris Stephens. The line-up includes eight uncapped players, with the Cardiff full-back Rhys Williams the most experienced, with eight senior caps. Seven players begin their first match on tour including the Pontypridd duo Gareth Wyatt and Michael Owen and the Newport tighthead prop Ceri Jones.
The Australian international full-back Rod Kafer is to join Leicester, having helped ACT Brumbies win the Super 12 title
Sale have signed the front-row forward Stuart Turner from Rotherham, while Daren O'Leary has agreed terms with Gloucester and is set to sign a two-year contract this week. O'Leary, who was released by Harlequins, is the most prolific try-scorer in Premiership history, with 68 in 139 appearances.
