Anscombe was initially ruled out of the Welsh squad for the RWC due to a slight ankle injury. Due to the number of casualties Warren Gatland’s side has suffered throughout the tournament, Anscombe reappeared in training camps last week and has now been named in the run on side, slotting into fullback.
Anscombe played for both the Blues and Chiefs in Super Rugby prior to leaving New Zealand at the end of last season to focus on representing Wales at the World Cup.
Remarkably, Anscombe now gets his time to shine.
The winner of the match will proceed to the quarter finals as the top seed from Pool A.
