Eddie Jones has stated in an interview with Sky Sports that he is going to be keeping the team the same for England’s clash in Wales at the weekend. The Aussie is looking upon their opening performance with a positive mind set, stating; “We played some good Rugby, particularly in the last 20 minutes” as England pulled the score back in their favour after some nice French play which led to a try in the 60th.
Eddie is still fully aware that their is work to do after a below par start of the game; he went on to say that they have “…got a good 60 minutes to fix…”. To the surprise of some, Eddie is not going to be making any changes so far for their journey to The Principality this weekend.
With the England boss stating; “I think we will be fairly consistent with our selection”, we are looking forward to seeing the same quality as we saw from Eddie’s boys throughout last year. Although, he is fully aware that they cannot go into their game with Wales with any complacency, as he believes the atmosphere has the ability to effect a sides performance, which would definitely be of benefit Wales.
Wales host England on Saturday with a 16.50 kick off, who do you think will come out on top in the battle between two great Rugby nations?
