England vs Wales: Six Nations squad news, how to watch, line-ups, odds

Neither rival can afford another defeat if they are to stay in the hunt for Championship glory, with both having opened the 2022 tournament with defeats before bouncing back in the second round.

Eddie Jones’ England were beaten again by former foes Scotland at Murrayfield after a late collapse but recovered in the east after perennial wooden spoon recipients Italy 33-0 in Rome last times.

Wales, plagued by injuries to Wayne Pivac, meanwhile opened their title defense with a 29-7 loss to Ireland in Dublin but then showed tremendous determination to slip past Scotland 20-17 at Cardiff thanks to substitute captain Dan Biggar’s drop goal.

With France looking so ominous in their pursuit of a Grand Slam triumph and every nation yet to play Les Bleus next month, both teams will be desperate to keep their title hopes alive with another victory here.
