Six Nations - Eddie Jones wants England to match the physicality of Wales

Ben Youngs claims England have produced the greatest rugby of the Eddie Jones era in sweeping aside Ireland and France.

The ruthless manner of England's victories, though, have left an indelible mark on this season's tournament and underlined their status as firm title favourites.

Neil Jenkins believes England have been "exceptional" in the Six Nations ahead of next week's Cardiff clash against Wales.

They have not lost in the Welsh capital since 2013, when Wales' stunning 30-3 victory destroyed English Grand Slam hopes. We are under no illusions about what's coming and know we need to play better than we have in the two games we've played, because we have not really fired a shot yet. "It is up to Eddie what he says; I am not bothered", said the Wales assistant coach, Neil Jenkins.

Playmakers Goode and Farrell have enjoyed much success together in club colours, winning the Premiership trophy four times and European Cup twice this decade.

"I think the emotions are pretty high at the moment, and we are still a week-and-a-half away from the game. It's a game I've no doubt we will be be ready for".

"We are looking forward to the game".


"Any sort of space they see they utilise it, whether it is through ball in hand or through their kicking game".

Jenkins said: "No disrespect to Scotland, who are a very good side and have done a lot of good things over the past year or so, but playing England at Twickenham is a big ask for any team".

Warren Gatland's squad are now second in the table following two wins from their opening two matches, securing victory in Paris with a superb second-half fightback before seeing off Italy 26-15 on Saturday.

The key selection debate is likely to be at fly-half, where Gatland will choose between Dan Biggar and Gareth Anscombe.

Scarlets fullback Halfpenny has not played since suffering a head injury against Australia during the November internationals.

'We don't want to get pumped up too soon, ' Edwards said to WRU TV.
