Rhys Patchell will be Wales’ backup fly-half into Dan Biggar for its World Cup, after being named in Warren Gatland’s final squad.
Cardiff Blues 10 Jarrod Evans, who started Saturday’s warm-up loss overlooks are meant by that.
Despite being sidelined with a little fracture in his leg lock Cory Hill is included.
There’s no place for Rob Evans and Scarlets props Samson Lee, or center Scott Williams.
Evans was choice during Wales’ 2019 Grand Slam campaign but Saracens’ Rhys Carre leaves the plane after making his debut against the Irish.
Tomas Francis nicky Smith, Dillon Lewis and Wyn Jones are the props. Jones will pay for either side of the scrum with two tight-heads chosen.
Ken Owens, who is currently heading into his third World Cup Dee and Ryan Elias would be the three hookers from the group.
“Selection is always the toughest aspect of the project and that is especially true come RWC time,” said Gatland.
“Reducing the squad down to 31 was extremely challenging especially once you examine the depth we’ve created and the total amount of work the coaching team have placed in.”
Hill is not predicted to be available for the beginning of Wales’ effort, which commences on 23 September against Georgia.
But the 27-year-old has got the nod in the second-row alongside Adam Beard, Jake Ball and priest Alun Wyn Jones.
Wales have appointed six back-rows at Ross Moriarty, James Davies, Josh Navidi, Aaron Shingler, Justin Tipuric and Aaron Wainwright.
Gatland has chosen and 13 backs in his squad.
Aled Davies, gareth Davies and Tomos Williams are called the scrum-halves.
Although Hallam Amos is selected in the back three before Owen Lane who shopped his debut, centre Owen Watkin was given the nod before Ospreys team-mate Scott Williams.
Hadleigh Parkes, jonathan Davies and Watkin are the centers from the group, together with Amos Josh Adams, Leigh Halfpenny, George North and Liam Williams comprised as back-three collections.
Are Steff Evans, Lane, Jonah Holmes, Scott Williams, Jarrod Evans, Rob Evans, Lee, Leon Brown and Bradley Davies.
“We are really satisfied with the final 31we believe there’s a great blend into the team, in terms of talent, experience and age profile and we are all incredibly excited about going into Japan and that which lies ahead,” Gatland added.
“All these players have performed and delivered for Wales and have the chance to represent their country in the game’s showpiece tournament.”
What started as an protracted training set of 42 players had been diminished by two tournament-ending injuries to fly-half Gareth Anscombe along with number eight Taulupe Faletau.
Wales start their World Cup campaign in Japan against Georgia on Monday, 23 September in Toyota City before pool games from Fiji, Australia and Uruguay.
