The Old Enemy
After a good performance to beat the Scots two weeks ago we move onto a difficult challenge at fortress Twickenham against the English.
Gatland has named the team early which is great as it shows our intent and confidence that he has in our 22 players.
There seems to be a lot of people writing off Englands chances, but if you look at the history books, England have the best home record of all the 6 Nations teams.
Its obvious that England will try and keep the game tight & attempt to gain field position and score from driving lineouts and mauls. They will attempt to starve our backs of the ball, as they are well aware of how dangerous our backs can be.
We need to ensure that we cut out any ill-discipline and minimise any mistakes. If we do this and play near our potential then we have a chance of winning. Farrell has a good kicking record - we need to minimise his chances.
I've seen some analysis, Charlie Hodgson loves the cross field kick, therefore our wingers need to be primed for these, and they'll probably being on Tuilagi in the second half to add some go forward to their midfield.
We need to concentrate on the things we do well, and not give England the type of field position which they could score points from.
I'm not making any predictions! I'll take a 1 point win to Wales!
Good luck to the boys. Come on cymru!
