England will look to use Jonathan Joseph to unsettle Rhys Patchell

Wales will be without full-back Leigh Halfpenny for their Six Nations clash with England Wales will be without full-back Leigh Halfpenny for their Six Nations clash with England

Richard Wigglesworth (Saracens) 22. New Zealand-born winger Solomona earned his only two England caps on last summer's tour of Argentina.

Scarlets playmaker Patchell was instrumental as Wales routed Scotland 34-7 in the opening round of fixtures and will continue in the No10 jersey at Twickenham in the continued absence of injured duo Dan Biggar and Rhys Priestland.

Wales boss Warren Gatland claimed earlier this week that England's six-day turnaround to tomorrow's game, compared to Wales's seven, could count against them.

Regardless of the sport there is always a massive rivalry between England and Wales and women's rugby is certainly no different.

Liam Williams' score and the boot of Leigh Halfpenny had given Wales a 13-8 half-time lead.

Finn Russell drives much of Scotland's attack but at Twickenham Wales will face a double threat in the shape of George Ford and Owen Farrell, whose understanding as a 10-12 axis is second to none in worldwide rugby.

Te'o, meanwhile, drops to the bench, with Bath man Joseph preferred at outside centre.

The Australian coach then made comments about Alun Wyn Jones and said that referee Jerome Garces won't be intimidated by the Wales captain, insisting that the 32-year-old's behaviour when Finn Russell was lining up a conversion at the end of the game was "out of order". They [Wales] have got to get the ball wide and Patchell hasn't played much Test match rugby. He's a young guy, he's inexperienced, and is their third-choice No. 10. "We're going to get off the line and hunt Wales as a team". It is going to be a different challenge from Scotland, but we have won there before and it is definitely do-able.

The way that the Wales camp have spoken this week though and the way that they dispatched Scotland so comfortably last week, you get the impression that they truly believe that they can repeat that victory at the home of English rugby. "Patchell will have to find guys around him to help because he'll be under some heat".

The 54-year-old has charged his side with delivering a more clinical performance on Saturday afternoon.

You have to look at France, they set the marker against Ireland [24-0] and Wales have got to be up there too. Everything is on the server there so we can look at whatever we want - any game you can think of is available on there.

We have spoken this week about being clinical and taking our chances and having to step up from last week to improve again this week.

ENGLAND: Brown; Watson, Joseph, Farrell, May; Ford, Care; M Vunipola, Hartley (capt), Cole, Launchbury, Itoje, Lawes, Robshaw, Simmonds. Against the Scots, Cory Hill, Rob Evans and Alun Wyn Jones combined in one move to nearly put Steff Evans over; Hill's pass helped put Leigh Halfpenny in for his first try; Alun Wyn Jones gave a "scoring" pass to Gareth Anscombe that the fly-half dropped; prop Wyn Jones was deprived of a try by the TMO; and we saw delicious tip passes by Alun Wyn Jones and Samson Lee in the same move.

LeBron James: This is what I really think about Isaiah Thomas
Even pieces such as Tyreke Evans and Marco Belinelli wound up staying with the Memphis Grizzlies and Atlanta Hawks , respectively. The Pistons are 5-0 since the trade, and Griffin (21.5 ppg, 7.8 rpg, 6.3 apg with Detroit) has been spectacular.
