The second week of the Six Nations Championship 2018 Sees a mouthwatering flight between back-to-back title winners England vs Wales at Twickenham on Saturday.

Both sides head into the match off the back of productive opening victories, with England beating Italy and Wales smashing off Scotland.

The game will be on ITV (coverage starts at 4.20pm) and S4C (Welsh language commentary only – coverage starts at 4pm).

Team News

England coach Eddie Jones says he has complained to World Rugby about the conduct of Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones before the two teams meet in Six Nations at Twickenham on Saturday. England have brought in Jonathan Joseph for Ben Te’o in one of two changes to the starting line-up in Rome.

Joseph starts at outside centre after making an impact off the bench, with Te’o demoted to a replacement role for the round-two match at Twickenham.

The second change sees Danny Care become England’s most capped scrum-half, edging past the milestone of 77 held by Matt Dawson, after he was chosen to replace knee-injury victim Ben Youngs in the No.9 jersey.

Apart from the presence of Te’o and Wigglesworth, the bench remains unchanged.

Wales give an overwhelming vote of confidence to the side that thumped Scotland 34-7 in Cardiff last Saturday.

“It’s not great for the game and I’ve said something to World Rugby about it, I feel that strongly. We’ve got to respect the integrity of the referee in the game because we’ve got one of the most difficult games to referee. And the game only gets more complex.

”It doesn’t get any easier. There’s more density around the ball. The players are bigger, faster and stronger. There’s quicker decisions from the referee to make.”

Both England and Wales made winning starts last weekend to their respective Six Nations campaigns.
