Jones backs Joseph to put 'heat' on Wales's Patchell


It will be his seventh cap for Wales.

"I can not understand why the TMO did not award the try", said Gatland, the Wales head coach, whose side lost 12-6.

Television match official Glenn Newman ruled Anthony Watson had beaten the Wales full-back to the ball during the first half at Twickenham. "So we've got to start well and it's important we try and contain the English as much as we can".

Jones will be hoping that their usually stalwart defence recovers to its peak with Ben Te'o dropped following his disappointing game last week.

Jones has transformed the dispirited squad he inherited from Stuart Lancaster in November 2015, following a forgettable home Rugby World Cup, into a winning machine.

"But I had to ask the question because I felt there was a game, particularly, in the autumn, against Australia, where had we reviewed the play it probably wouldn't have stood, because of something that happened two rucks earlier".

Principality's "rugby buddy" competition called for Facebook users to nominate a deserving friend or family member that they would usually watch the Six Nations with at home, resulting in Lisa bagging tickets for her son Seth, 12, and husband Jon, 50. "It's not an easy place to go and play".

"We will be stressing them with whatever rugby we play, and we'll make sure that they are working harder than they have ever worked before, and that is where we can have the advantage".

"He's a young guy, he's inexperienced and he's their third-choice 10 [fly-half]".

The Wales vs. Scotland game was obviously a tough one. "We've lost Dan Biggar and other guys".

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

England continued to force turnovers and were still two scores ahead going into the final quarter of the match as a brilliant cover tackle in the corner by Underhill denied centre Scott Williams what seemed a certain try.

"We're sponsored by a well-known brewery for a long time so there's plenty of bottle there", he joked.

New Zealander Newman became a TMO in 2004, with more than 100 national provincial, Super Rugby and global test matches including Six Nations. That's what you're made of. Jonathan's got great experience, he's fast, a great defensive player. Whether it's from your own camp or another you've got to answer those. "That's the pressure of professional sport". The focus falls on us now.

With rain forecast around south west London on Saturday the storm clouds are gathering in every sense.

He struggled to navigate into some better position throughout the 80 minutes as well and his performance was typical of Wales' all-round mediocre showing which cost them the game.

"They have the ability to have changes in crucial areas and the strength in depth when people come in to be able to fill the void and continue in a similar vein".

This'll give Wales enormous amounts of confidence that they can get points on the board without relying on the ever-steady boot of Leigh Halfpenny.

It is building up to be some game.
