Wales Suffer Injury Blow Ahead Of England Battle At Twickenham

England beat Wales 12-6 in a tight contest at Twickenham Stadium to make it two wins from two in the 2018 Six Nations.

Eddie Jones has also targeted Scarlets fly-half Rhys Patchell, claiming to have doubts over whether Wales' "third-choice 10" has the bottle to perform on the big stage.

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

"But when it gets a bit cut and thirst, nip and tuck, this will be a proper Test". We can't handle the bulk and the power of England.

Started poorly by spilling the ball after gathering Wales' kick-off but climbed above Rhys Patchell minutes later in the lead-up to Jonny May's try.

"This is the sort of thing where you can choose your friends but you can't choose your family". I'll have to have a chat with uncle Eddie after the game.

Jones continued his extraordinary scrutinising of Patchell's temperament by comparing the rawness of Wales' nine-10-12 axis to his own.

Youngs' injury has led to a recall to the bench for Richard Wigglesworth of Saracens, who last played a competitive game for England at the 2015 World Cup.

But now they are better off playing for the lottery than the playoffs , and any moves they make would likely be with that in mind. He dunked with 8:46 left in the half and landed awkwardly, crashing to the court and holding his left knee.

"That's a big task for him".

England won the subsequent line-out but Wales were soon back in their 22 only for another knock-on to cost them dear.

Katie Fitzhenry has been called into the squad after representing Ireland at the Sydney Sevens and will start at outside-centre, while Paula Fitzpatrick starts in the second row.

No England player stood out like a sore thumb during their victory, but Watson wasn't his usual self on the pitch in comparison to his performance against the Italians the week before.

The tactic of placing Patchell and Alun Wyn in the crosshairs has been viewed by some commentators as high-risk, serving only to enrage Wales - but Hatley insists singling out opposition ringleaders is standard practice.

"Eddie's told me to back myself, the first decision that comes into your head is probably the right one", said Care. For us, the main focus for every game is to win. "There are a few threats we've got to be looking at handling, but it's still about ourselves as well". It was a staple of their attack against Italy and they'll look for quick ball and to attack the Patchell-Parkes combination in midfield. It's been happening for ages in Test Rugby. He's quick and he's got some skills, but as a team we'll put him under pressure and make it very hard for him", Lawes said "We're hunting Wales this week.

"I'm not 6ft 8ins and I'm not 125 kilos, so when you come in you've all got your traits and handling is something I like to do. I'm sure the same conversations happen in camps across the country".

It is understood that the sport's global governing have responded by exonerating the Welsh captain of any wrongdoing. "And if it's a close game, then hopefully that confidence continues to lift for us to hopefully get a result". They are great banter, but more importantly they are fantastic rugby players. Some of the girls have never played a tournament for England before, never mind an away game, so there are lots of lessons that we'll carry with us through the rest of the tournament.
