Eddie Jones Attempts To Rattle Rhys Patchell Ahead Of Six Nations Clash

Eddie Jones Attempts To Rattle Rhys Patchell Ahead Of Six Nations Clash

When Wales head for Twickenham the odds on a passive, entirely silent pre-match buildup usually range between slim and none. But not one of them is flyhalf Rhys Patchell, whom Jones has promised will be targeted.

"Every time Rhys Patchell looks up, he's going to see Jonathan Joseph in his vision - it's not a great sight", Jones said. So there's obviously going to be a massive scrap around that area for that quick ball.

Te'o impressed with his powerful carrying against Italy but faded in his first appearance since undergoing ankle surgery in October. So we will see how they deal with Twickenham, and deal with us. He is going to have [Chris] Robshaw at him, [Owen] Farrell at him, [Danny] Care at him - all guys that have played a lot of Test rugby.

"They played really well against Scotland but it's going to be different on Saturday - they had no expectation on them last Saturday but this week they come full of expectation". It's a big ask ... one hell of an experience for the kid.

Davies will hope to write another Twickenham chapter to that book on Saturday.

An average game to watch for 80 minutes has gone down in folklore, because of the final few minutes - over 40 phases of error-free play from Ireland and a 40-metre drop goal from Johnny Sexton.

Jones has piled the pressure on the inexperienced Welsh fly-half, 24, who will be winning his seventh cap in the absence of injured playmakers Dan Biggar and Rhys Priestland.

Joseph has changed places with Worcester midfielder Ben Te'o, with his return forecast by Warren Gatland when the Wales coach named his side on Tuesday. "He's confident. And they are definitely confident and cocky", Jones said. It will be different to playing against Scotland. They will make a hell of a difference. They finished off a tiring defence with tries from phase play, but Italy had 27 more rucks in the match, twice exploiting a narrow defence, but for the most part making little progress against the defensive wall either side of the breakdown.

"I can speak for the whole team when I say we are excited to get back to our turf and rip into what is going to be a huge game". "This will be a proper Test match". Their last four tournament (Rugby World Cup and Six Nations) meetings have all been decided by five points or less. "I feel he will start the game well against Wales. He won't let Alun Wyn Jones referee the game".

"They had nothing to lose, and they played with a great freedom [last weekend]".

Thank you for your feedback.

"We want to make sure our set piece is dominant, our defence is ferocious and that we are at our best against Wales this weekend". Scotland couldn't cope with the expectation, and now he's got to cope with the expectation of playing well.

"Danny Care very much deserves the honour of being the most capped England scrum half and I am sure he'll make the most of his opportunity on Saturday". "All I know is that I'll sleep well on Friday night". The ten Scarlets players who started, not surprisingly, brought good combinations that others complemented.
