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.

US expresses concern over chemWeap attack in Syria
They have taken refuge in the north of the province in one of the biggest displacements of the war so far, Moumtzis said. It was the first time a Russian jet was shot down over Syria since Russia launched its air campaign on Assad's behalf.

"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.

Gingrich on Pelosi Marathon Speech: That's 'What Freshmen Do'
As of this writing, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is in the eighth hour of a speech in defense of Dreamers . She was wearing four-inch-heels while delivering the speech and only sipped water, sources said.

"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.

Syria says Israeli war planes target a position near Damascus
France said Wednesday that "all indications" suggested the Syrian regime was using chlorine weapons against rebel forces. But tensions have flared as Turkish forces moved to set up one such post south of Aleppo.

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.
