FORMER Dragons full-back Hallam Amos gets the chance to secure a World Cup spot as part of a much-changed Wales XV against Ireland on Saturday.

The speedster, who has moved to Cardiff Blues, starts at Principality Stadium as Warren Gatland gives a raft of players one last chance to earn a spot for Japan.

The head coach has made 14 changes to the side that started the win against England in Cardiff with flanker James Davies, who was forced off early on with concussion, the sole survivor.

Dragons tighthead Leon Brown, like Amos, features for the first time this summer and is joined on the bench by regional teammates Elliot Dee and Ross Moriarty.

There is still no place for lock Cory Hill, who didn't feature in the England double-header after suffering an ankle injury, while back rower Aaron Wainwright is given a breather.

Loosehead Rhys Carre and wing Owen Lane will win their first caps in a side captained by number eight Josh Navidi.

“It is a great opportunity for Rhys and Owen, they have worked hard all summer to get to this point so it will be good for them to get their first international caps and put their hands up for RWC selection after the match,” said Gatland.

“For Josh, it’s a huge honour to be named captain, he has been hugely consistent for us, he has really impressed in the last couple of seasons and he will lead from the front of Saturday and it is a great compliment for him to be awarded the captaincy.

“Saturday is a really big game for the players and I’m really excited about the challenge for this Welsh team.

"There is so much at stake in terms of RWC selection with a number of positions still up for grabs it will be huge game.”

Gatland names his 31-man World Cup squad on Sunday.
