Wales Women up for England challenge

Rob Evans

Care will become England's most capped scrum-half, winning his 78th cap to overtake World Cup victor Matt Dawson, when he takes the field for England's Six Nations match against Wales.

The 24-year-old has been the focus a great deal of attention this week.

Jones believes that the Wales captain overstepped the mark with his attempts to prevent Finn Russell from taking a quick conversion after...

Cory Hill has also overcome a head blow suffered against the Scots to pack down with skipper Alun Wyn Jones in the second row. They will have their work cut out because the likes of Mako Vunipola, Courtney Lawes and Sam Simmonds provide the ball-carrying options that we didn't really see from the Scots.

The RFU, who extended Jones's contract beyond the 2019 Rugby World Cup, have already stated they will endorse any approach for Jones to coach the Lions in South Africa in 2021. But ultimately as players, that kind of stuff goes on outside the tent.

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 added: "From people you speak to, it's his man-management within that group and once you get in, the confidence he gives the group of players and they've obviously gone on and won the last two Six Nations".

More cold, wintry precipitation could be expected this weekend
A slight chance of snow showers before 8am, then a slight chance of rain and snow showers. Saturday: Flurries or light snow possible during the afternoon, with a high at 22.

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 thought that was right out of order", said the England coach. "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".

"Hopefully it's going to be a special day for me and my family, but we need the performance to make it special".

The relative ease of England's 46-15 Six Nations victory in Rome last weekend was expected, Wales' 34-7 saunter against the Scots far less so.

"Garces is a very experienced referee. He's got plenty of big match experience, he knows how to handle interesting moments in games", Jones said. "I had to ask the questions because there was a game in the autumn where had we reviewed the play, a try probably wouldn't have stood".

"You set yourself up for a big game, and then you potentially become number one or someone pulls your trousers down". So that's to help them.

Emlyn rugby star Scott Williams has set his sights on a Twickenham triumph after his side thumped Scotland to get their NatWest Six Nations campaign off to a flying start.
