2017/18 Rugby P/L
Care will become England's most capped scrum-half with his 78th cap surpassing Matt Dawson's total. Saracens' Richard Wigglesworth could make his first appearance since the World Cup from off the bench. Wales brushed aside any injury concerns of their own with a superb performance in their one-sided win at home to Scotland.
Warren Gatland opted to start with ten Scarlets players and his faith was repaid with all the points scored by them including two tries from full-back Leigh Halfpenny pictured below.
Wales ruthlessly punished mistakes by Scotland and their excellent defence denied Gregor Townsend's team. Gatland has decided to stick with exactly the same side for this weekend's game. The players have been rewarded for their excellent performance in Cardiff and the only change to the squad sees winger George North brought onto the bench in place of centre Owen Watkin.
The decision to resist changes is a sensible one and underlines Gatland's confidence in his team after such a promising display against Scotland. England have had the edge over Wales in recent meetings winning the last three clashes and five of the last six games. Jones has also won all of his matches at Twickenham and England are unbeaten at home in the competition since This underlines the size of the task on Wales' hands although Gatland has won three times at the stadium in eight visits so will not be short of self-belief.
The hosts are short-priced favourites for this match and the handicap is pitched at 12 points but England have only beaten this once in their last 11 games against Wales. Instead, it could be worth taking the favourites to cover a seven-point handicap in the second half.
England have covered this in their last three games and showed against Australia in November and Italy their ability to finish teams off as the match progresses. With the likes of Te'o and Jack Nowell to come off the bench, England could pull away in the closing stages.
Watson has an excellent record against Wales with a try in his last two appearances against them and three in four matches. The England winger looked very sharp against Italy with his two early tries and will be one of the main attacking threats for the hosts. Follow Simon's bets on Twitter watfordtipster.
