WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) Lock Luke Charteris will captain Wales for the first time when the tourists play two-time Super Rugby champions the Chiefs at Hamilton on Tuesday.

Charteris, who has played 66 tests, will lead a team which contains only a handful of players who took part in Saturday's first test against New Zealand which was won 39-21 by the All Blacks.

Ellis Jenkins, who made his test debut at Eden Park two days ago, will start at flanker in a backrow combination with Josh Turnbull and James King.

The front row of Rob Evans, Scott Baldwin and Tomas Francis featured in all of Wales' matches in the 2016 Six Nations tournament.
