After starting their tournament with a narrow but nonetheless impressive 18-17 victory over Scotland in Colwyn Bay, next up for Wales is England at Twickenham Stoop on Saturday.

His 75th-minute touchdown secured Wales the Triple Crown and also underpinned a second Grand Slam of Warren Gatland's coaching reign that arrived just three weeks later.

England's hardest fixture of the tournament is already shaping up to be their trip to France in the penultimate round but they are favourites to defend their title and are expected to beat a transitional Wales side, having won 63-0 in Cardiff past year.

"Another one of those memories would be nice", Williams said. It's a long time ago now, too long.

"We're not intimidated by the Twickenham factor at all, and there's a lot of guys in the squad that will go there with a lot of confidence", Gatland says. "He's got plenty of big match experience, he knows how to handle interesting moments in games", Jones said.

Wales made a dream start to the 2018 Six Nations as they crushed Scotland 34-7 in a bonus-point win at the Principality Stadium.

It has been a turbulent season at the Bernabeu to say the least, slipping an incredible 19 points behind their most bitter rivals, Barcelona in La Liga, while facing the unenviable task of facing PSG in the Champions League round of 16.


"I don't think they've lost at Twickenham in a couple of years (their last Six Nations loss was versus Wales in 2012)". Hopefully after the game I can celebrate then'. "It is starting to pay off now".

Care will surpass Matt Dawson's record of 77 Red Rose appearances when Wales visit Twickenham on Saturday after being asked to fill the vacancy left by Ben Youngs' NatWest Six Nations-ending knee injury.

Gatland, who has coached the Lions on their last two tours of Australia and New Zealand respectively, raved about Jones's impact on England and touted the former Wallabies and Japan coach to be named as his Lions successor.

Northampton wing George North's inclusion in the squad as the backs replacement the only adjustment.

England: Mike Brown, Anthony Watson, Jonathan Joseph, Owen Farrell, Jonny May, George Ford, Danny Care; Sam Simmonds, Chris Robshaw, Courtney Lawes, Maro Itoje, Joe Launchbury, Dan Cole, Dylan Hartley (captain), Mako Vunipola. Replacements: George, Hepburn, H Williams, Kruis, Underhill, Wigglesworth, Te'o, Nowell.

Wales: L Halfpenny (Scarlets); J Adams (Worcester), S Williams (Scarlets), H Parkes (Scarlets), S Evans (Scarlets); R Patchell (Scarlets), G Davies (Scarlets); R Evans (Scarlets), K Owens (Scarlets), S Lee (Scarlets), C Hill (Dragons), A W Jones (Ospreys, capt), A Shingler (Scarlets), J Navidi (Cardiff Blues), R Moriarty (Gloucester).
