Warburton and Webb return for Italy clash
Webb is back in the side at scrum-half after recovering from an ankle injury sustained in a drubbing by Australia in November, as Howley makes five changes to the team that beat South Africa.
Ross Moriarty will don the number eight shirt after Taulupe Faletau was ruled out as he recovers from a knee injury.
The Test in Rome will be Wales’ first since Alun Wyn Jones replaced Warburton as skipper.
Wales team: Leigh Halfpenny, George North, Jonathan Davies, Scott Williams, Liam Williams, Dan Biggar, Rhys Webb; Nicky Smith, Ken Owens, Samson Lee, Jake Ball, Alun Wyn Jones (captain), Sam Warburton, Justin Tipuric, Ross Moriarty.
