England vs Wales

England have made two changes from the side that beat Italy, including Danny Care stepping in for the injured Ben Youngs at scrum-half.

The other switch is at outside centre, with Jonathan Joseph replacing Ben Te’o, who drops to the bench.

Wales full-back Leigh Halfpenny has missed training with illness and is a doubt for Saturday’s game.

Wing George North is among the replacements after impressing last weekend for Northampton Saints.

View from both camps
England head coach Eddie Jones: “Wales see themselves on a self-proclaimed roll at the moment. So we will see how they deal with Twickenham, and deal with us.

“They have got a number of players that are going to struggle with the expectation. They had nothing to lose [last weekend] and they played with a great freedom. Now they have expectation, and they have to cope with that expectation.”

Wales forwards coach Robin McBryde: “They [England] gained the ascendency out in Italy. They base their game around the set-piece. They’ll be looking to exert their dominance up front.

“We’re comfortable with where we are. We had a good hit out amongst each other before the autumn so the familiarity is there.

Ex-Wales captain Martyn Williams says Saturday’s Six Nations match between England and Wales at Twickenham is “as big as it can be” after both sides enjoyed comprehensive winning starts.

Champions England hammered Italy¬†on Sunday and have won 14 home games in a row, but Williams believes¬†Wales’ scintillating win over Scotlandlast weekend shows they can cause an upset.

“Last week all the talk was Scotland, with everybody putting Wales down, but they sent them home packing,” Williams told BBC Radio 5 live.

“It’s a totally different game going to Twickenham and the expectation is now on Wales. No doubt they’ll have respect for England, they’re a different animal, but Wales will be confident.

“They have got their swagger back and Wales are dangerous team when they’re confident.”
