Wales centre Scott Williams hopes for another red letter day at Twickenham

Eddie Jones has questioned Alun Wyn Jones´ actions against Scotland

"When he tried to stop the referee from allowing the kick at goal - we can't have that in the game", he said. We can't have that in the game.

"He has got to find guys willing to help him, because he is going to be under some heat".

The great thing about playing away in Italy or France is that they have great functions afterwards with lots of fantastic food and facilities. It was the size of a TV screen - a metre by a metre-and-a-half - and it had the Italy and England badges in the middle and tasted absolutely unbelievable.

'We've got to respect the integrity of the referee because we've got one of the most hard games to referee.

For us, it's really important that we cut out our errors.

There is a level of pressure which comes with that and, by brining more petrol to the mind game fire than Gatland this week, Jones is clearly trying to deflate the expectation, especially with chinks still evident in the England armour. "I don't think they've lost at Twickenham in a couple of years (their last Six Nations loss was versus Wales in 2012)".

"We need to build on that result and there were enough aspects of that game which were very pleasing, but also we know that if we get opportunities against England, we have to take them".

But Jones said: "We've had 18 months to prepare for this turnaround".

The younger girls are great, they bring a bit of youth to the team and good energy.

Asked if he took any offence, Jones said: "No not at all".

Coming into the tournament, you wouldn't have found too many people who would have disagreed with the assertion that, in this contest, England would have a slight edge at the lineout and Wales would have a slight edge at the scrum.

Wales wing Steff Evans (103) was the only player to gain more than 100 metres on the opening weekend, while Josh Navidi managed to win a round-high three turnovers.

Regardless of the sport there is always a massive rivalry between England and Wales and women's rugby is certainly no different.

"This time last week Wales had zero chance". He played with real authority and Jones will be feeling the threat of that.

Wales centre Jamie Roberts, a guest on the Rugby Union Weekly podcast, believes Saturday's battle at Twickenham will be "like a game of chess".

Both teams delivered in their respective areas of strength last weekend, but what was also notable was how effective the English scrum looked and how smoothly the Welsh lineout ran. Everything is on the server there so we can look at whatever we want - any game you can think of is available on there.

The Clubhouse Bar at Sardis Road will be open on Saturday 10th February to show the big match between England and Wales. The handicap is set at 33 points and Ireland at evens to cover it look worth a punt.
