Wales have made five changes to their starting XV for Saturday's Test with New Zealand with Sam Warburton returning as captain.
Warburton's return comes at the expense of Justin Tipuric at openside flank. In other changes in the pack, Matthew Rees returnes at hooker for Richard Hibbard and Luke Charteris comes into the second row in place of Ian Evans, who is battling to overcome a knee injury. Aaron Shingler is named on the bench.
Amongst the backs, Jonathan Davies replaces Ashley Beck at outside centre, Rhys Priestland starts at fly-half instead of James Hook, with Dan Biggar sidelined due to injury.
Warren Gatland has returned to the coaching set-up after missing Wales' consecutive Test defeats to Argentina and Samoa this month and will lead the side on Saturday against his native New Zealand.
It's an honour to be playing the World Champions at the Millennium Stadium this weekend," he said.
"Memories of the Rugby World Cup and touring New Zealand the previous summer are still fresh in the mind of many of the players and staff.
"The hospitality shown and the way we were looked after made the experience especially memorable and that makes it all the more special that we have the opportunity to face the best side in the world at the moment in Cardiff."
