Jonathan Joseph and Danny Care handed England starts

England head coach Eddie Jones has ignited the animosity prior to Saturday's Six Nations tussle with Wales by questioning whether inexperienced fly-half Rhys Patchell has the mental strength to cope with expectation upon him.

That 2008 match was also Warren Gatland's first in charge of Wales.

"In all seriousness, I am very grateful he flagged it up - if someone is unsure, particularly in professional sport, it is important we get clarity".

"It was more important that World Rugby, when they were asked for clarification, came back and essentially said that they saw nothing untoward".

Attacking teams have been known to rush conversions when there is a lingering doubt over the preceding try as, once a kick has been taken, it is too late to overturn the initial decision.

Liam Williams, who was due to resume full training with the Wales squad on Monday following an abdominal injury, is not involved this weekend - he looks likely to get game-time with his club Saracens. "I think it's going to be another big one this one".

"Ultimately, as players, we are inside the tent and we have got to deal with that happens between the white lines".




It was Davies that scored the match-winning try, and in effect triggered the decisive defeat that cost Stuart Lancaster his job - one the defeat by Australia confirmed England's exit - brought the arrival of Eddie Jones and started England's most dominant run of results in their history. "He's quick and he's got some skills but as a team we'll put him under pressure and make it very hard for him".

Having opened their Six Nations campaign with an emphatic victory over Scotland, Wales will be going all out to maintain momentum by getting one over the "old enemy" at headquarters.

England began their NatWest 6 Nations title defence last weekend with a bonus point 46-15 win over Italy in Rome, whilst Wales stunned Scotland 34-7 in Cardiff, and Care is excited by their meet in round two.

"We're expecting a totally different game this week. He's got plenty of big match experience, he knows how to handle interesting moments in games", Jones said.

Replacements: 16-Elliot Dee, 17-Wyn Jones, 18-Thomas Francis, 19-Bradley Davies, 20-Justin Tipuric, 21-Aled Davies, 22-Gareth Anscombe, 23-George North. Garces won't tolerate that sort of stuff. "You've still got to respect the integrity of the referee".

"I know that England are a powerful team, but it's not a case that we're running out of steam, I just think we need to be more accurate with what we do with the ball", he said.

The way that the Wales camp have spoken this week though and the way that they dispatched Scotland so comfortably last week, you get the impression that they truly believe that they can repeat that victory at the home of English rugby.
