Dan Biggar has been rested for Wales’ game against Portugal

Dan Biggar has been rested by Warren Gatland as he named his Wales team to face Portugal in their second match of the Rugby World Cup.

Wales held on for a 32-26 victory over Fiji in their opening match last weekend, but Saturday’s clash should in theory be the easiest game of Wales’ campaign, as they take on the lowest-ranked side in Pool C.

Leigh Halfpenny is one of the more notable additions as he comes in at full-back for his 101st cap.

Wales starting XV: Leigh Halfpenny; Louis Rees-Zammit, Mason Grady, Johnny Williams, Rio Dyer; Gareth Anscombe, Tomos Williams; Nicky Smith, Dewi Lake (c), Dillon Lewis, Christ Tshiunza, Dafydd Jenkins, Dan Lydiate, Tommy Reffell, Taulupe Faletau.

Replacements: Ryan Elias, Corey Domachowski, Tomas Francis, Adam Beard, Taine Basham, Gareth Davies, Sam Costelow, Josh Adams.
