Jones slams Welsh skipper ahead clash

10 February 2018

Wales' win over Scotland in round one was its 50th victory under Warren Gatland and its 50th in the Six Nations overall (since 2000).

Danny Care's pride in becoming England's most-capped scrum-half will count for little if the side fail to beat Wales in the Six Nations at Twickenham.

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.

"It was quite amusing, we had a couple of Scarlets calls off the top of our heads at the weekend just by accident but we all reacted to them and got through it", he said.

Wales' win against Scotland came despite a mounting injury list, and Jones recognised Warren Gatland's side will have a different mindset.

Joseph comes in for Ben Te'o and was one of two changes from the England team that opened the Six Nations with a 46-15 win against Italy. Jones will announce his England team on Thursday.

Rain chances this weekend with warmer temperatures headed our way
The speed of falling temperatures and redevelopment of rainfall Sunday morning could prompt changes in the forecast, Smith said. Temperatures will also plunge, with lows of -2C leading to a widespread frost and icy stretches on the roads.

"But it was more important that World Rugby, when they were asked for clarification, came back and essentially said that they saw nothing untoward with what happened".

"Now they have expectation, and they have to cope with that".

"If they continue to do that then it will cause England a few problems", Land Rover ambassador Robinson told Omnisport. The England v Wales match at Twickenham kicks off at 4:45pm.

The tightness on that occasion was typical of their recent encounters.

Either way, the Six Nations could do with another cleansing weekend to sweep aside the trash talk, the injury updates, the dubious HIA cases and the tiresome TMO debates.

The hosts are short-priced favourites for this match and the handicap is pitched at 12 points but England have only beaten this once in their last 11 games against Wales.

Those remarks were dismissed by coach Tyronn Lue, who said, "That's not true". "It's not something I wanted to do", Altman said. Love you my guy! If the lifestyle is all the same to him, and I don't know that it is, I'd think he would stay in Cleveland.

"We will keep going on like that".

The Welsh squad includes 10 players who have tasted victory at Twickenham.

"It's easy to play when the ball is on the front foot and going from side to side", Eddie Jones said.

13 Jonathan Joseph (Bath 36 caps). "It's whether he has the bottle to handle it", Jones said.

The skipper also brushed aside Jones' assertions that Wales No.10 Rhys Patchell would be under pressure and was too inexperienced.

"The pressure on him [Patchell] is going to be enormous". It blew the Scots' own pretensions of seizing England's crown out of the water, but playing against the champions at Twickenham is a different proposition.

Oil sinks as USA output soars, wiping out 2018 gains
The EIA raised the US' 2018 average output forecast to 10.59m bpd, up 320,000 bpd from its estimate last week. The country's import dependence is also expected to grow as imports rise and production at home declines.

Indeed, the Australian went further and confirmed he had spoken to World Rugby regarding the issue, such were the strength of his feelings, and claimed Wales' Jones would "not intimidate [referee] Jerome Garces" against England.
