A try is scored "by pressing down on the ball with a hand or hands, arm or arms, or the front of the player's body from waist to neck".

"But when it gets a bit cut and thirst, nip and tuck, this will be a proper Test. Then we will see if Patchell has the bottle to handle it".

Lawes said: "Patchell's a good player".

"It's the sort of thing you can choose your friends but you can't choose your family".

"I loved the way he played the game, so to overtake him in caps is brilliant".

Eddie Jones also compared the rawness of Wales' nine-10-12 axis to his own.

Danny Care started in place of the injured Ben Youngs and so became England's most-capped scrum-half, surpassing World Cup victor Matt Dawson's record of 77 Tests, while centre Jonathan Joseph replaced Ben Te'o. There are a lot of guys in this squad who will go there with a lot of confidence.

The visitors spread the ball wide to unsafe wing Jess Kavanagh-Williams early on, but Rowland Phillips' side were then dealt a blow as Kerin Lake was replaced by Hannah Jones.

"That's a big task for him".

He said that England got there first and there was no downward pressure from Wales.

Attack on Indian Army Camp in Kashmir Reportedly Leaves 2 Troops Killed
Singh said, "You should be rest assured that Army and security forces are giving a befitting reply to the attack". The authorities already closed all schools and restricted movement of people within 500 meters from the camp.

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. However, as numerous team are inexperienced and France are now ranked third in the world, Scotland will need the home support as they play at Scotstoun for the first time in the Six Nations.

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. "I think that's what makes the relationship special". "That's the focus for us".

"You've just got to sometimes put up with unlucky decisions", Gatland said afterwards as he reminded of the incident involving North. It's been happening for ages in Test Rugby. The magic now is to blend in players from other clubs, get them all playing the same style of rugby and it's great that they are playing the style that Scarlets are playing but obviously the national team should be stronger. That's all Eddie is doing.

But while I've backed England to do the Grand Slam this year, I've got to admit I'd be nervous about supporting them at those short odds this weekend. "Me and Izzy Noel-Smith are like Dumb and Dumber around camp".

The former Australia chief lodged a complaint about the Ospreys lock's conduct in last weekend's win against Scotland with World Rugby, taking issue with Jones' questioning of Peter Horne's late try when Finn Russell was preparing to take the conversion.

The RFU then gave one of the boys the opportunity to go to the England v Wales games and Louis was the chosen one in the draw!

It is understood that the sport's global governing have responded by exonerating the Welsh captain of any wrongdoing. We have to continually remember that.

"We can't have that in the game".

Jonny May ran in two tries in the opening 20 minutes to send defending Six Nations champions England on their way, before Wales' Gareth Anscombe had a try controversially disallowed by the TMO.

Wales (15-1): L Halfpenny; J Adams, S Williams, H Parkes, S Evans; R Patchell, G Davies; R Moriarty, J Navidi, A Shingler; AW Jones (capt), C Hill; S Lee, K Owens, R Evans.
