Wales’ defence coach Shaun Edwards believes it is unlikely that key players will be rested when they play Fiji on Wednesday.

The Welsh are coming off a bruising encounter against England where the battle of the boot saw Dan Biggar guide them to victory.

However, Edwards revealed that Wales cannot rest on their laurels and he is expecting coach Warren Gatland to name a strong line-up for their clash against Fiji at the Millennium Stadium on Thursday.

“I don’t think we will be resting too many players,” said Edwards.

“One thing you find out about Welsh teams, or any rugby team, is that when you get some momentum you want to keep that going.

“We do have quite a long turnaround between the Fiji game and the Australia game on 10 October, so the boys will get rested next weekend.”
