Wales duo back

George North and Liam Williams both trained with Wales yesterday, putting the pair in contention to play against England in the Six Nations at Twickenham on Sunday.

The British and Irish Lions duo have seen little action this season as they have battled with injury. However, their participation in training heightens their chances of featuring on the second weekend of championship action.

North had been sent by Wales back to his club Northampton last week to get some game time.

In his first appearance in a month following a knee injury, he made an impressive showing, scoring a try in Saturday's 36-10 win over Harlequins in the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

Williams, who plies his trade for Saracens, has not played much since suffering an abdominal injury last year.

Wales began their Six Nations campaign with a 34-7 home triumph over Scotland in Cardiff on Sunday, despite a myriad of injuries.

They will take on an England team who easily beat Italy in Rome as they seek to win a third successive championship.
