Wales boss Wayne Pivac will today name his squad for the autumn opener against France on Saturday.

Seven months after their last Test match against England during the Six Nations, Wales face Les Bleus in Paris to start their six-match autumn campaign.

With the rescheduled Scotland Six Nations clash a week later on October 31, it remains to be seen whether Pivac will field an experimental side or give his big-hitters much-needed minutes in preparation.

Liam Williams and Jonah Holmes have both been released back to their regions for this weekend, meaning uncapped teenage sensation Louis Rees-Zammit is odds on to make his debut.

Bristol Bears fly-half Callum Sheedy is unlikely to feature after arriving in camp late due to commitments with his club side and JOsh Navidi will miss the match as he continues to recover from concussion.

After the Scotland game on Halloween, Wales feature in the new Autumn Nations Cup, featuring the Six Nations teams plus Fiji and Georgia. You can see Wales' autumn fixtures in full here.

France not taking it lightly

Respected French rugby journalist Paul Eddison has an early steer on the French team to face Wales.

It looks like a seriously formidable side and there's not much of a 'pre-season' feel to it.

France name their team in 20 minutes.

Will we see Louis?

The big question of the day is regarding Louis Rees-Zammit.

The Gloucester try machine was picked in the Six Nations squad but didn't feature in the tournament.

This time around, he has spend a full two weeks in camp ahead of the first game, giving him as much time as possible to prepare for the match, something he wasn't afforded earlier this year due to club commitments.

Really, now would seem like the perfect time for Pivac to throw him in and the fans are keen to see it happen.

If not now, when?

Good morning

Welcome to our live updates from the Wales team announcement as Wayne PIvac picks his side to face France.

It's the first time Wales have played in seven months, making it difficult to predict which how the head coach will go.

But it is only a warm-up match and the result will have no impact on the seedings for the Rugby World Cup draw later this year, giving Pivac a little more freedom to experiment.

The France team is announced at 10am, Wales at midday, followed by Pivac's press conference at 1pm.

Stay tuned for all the latest throughout the day.
