Fit-again Faletau set to be a 'finisher' for Wales against England

Fit-again Faletau set to be a 'finisher' for Wales against England

James Haskell has returned to fitness after a seven-month lay-off because of toe surgery, but Jones insists his lack of game time means his contribution will be limited to another 25-minute cameo off the bench.

He also said that Welsh fans can throw daffodils at his players on Saturday, and Wales defence specialist Edwards has welcomed Jones' approach to what is traditionally a full-blown contest.

England triumphed 21-16 on their last visit to Cardiff under Stuart Lancaster two years ago, but their 30-3 hammering in 2013 was the fourth defeat they had suffered across the Severn Bridge since 2005.

He said: "We are fortunate to have a stadium that adds to the occasion". So the challenge for a team to play away is to be better than that. We've trained as best as we can and looking forward to one of the best sides if not the best side in the northern hemisphere at the moment. They always have been.

"They got across the line against France".

"We were disappointed about how we played against France and it's an opportunity to play in one of the great stadiums of the world".

Clifford is set to feature in a fledgling back-row in Cardiff along with Maro Itoje and Nathan Hughes.

"Playing Wales in Cardiff is one of the biggest games in world rugby and we're excited". They have only four back row starts between them, exposing an Achilles heel that Wales will be hoping to exploit through the far more savvy Sam Warburton, Justin Tipuric and Ross Moriarty.

Number eight Taulupe Faletau is available for selection after recovering from a knee injury.

"Kicking is a large part of Halfpenny's game, whether that be off the tee or out of hand but having said that I think Brown has probably got the nudge on him in attack so it balances itself out".

Then there was the roof fandango - the biennial pre-match discussion over whether the open air sport will be played under the Welsh sunset or retractable roof.

Alex Cuthbert could replace North while Sam Davies, who enjoyed a fine second half off the bench against Italy, is ready to take over from Biggar again.

It has been an ongoing topic of discussion leading into Saturday's Test with Wales openly stating they wanted the roof closed. That is the biggest bonus they are going to get moving forwards, as Eddie has alluded to.

Wales' plan failed, the kickoff was delayed, and England won on opening night, ultimately costing Wales the championship.
