The run-up to the England vs Wales match has been surprisingly tame, but hopefully, the intensity will be saved for game day at Twickenham. Warren Gatland tried to create some controversy by criticizing Welsh players who chose to play for England. However, compared to previous years, there has been a lack of fiery comments from Gatland's counterpart, Eddie Jones, who has been replaced by Steve Borthwick. England has been focusing on their performance on the pitch rather than talking. Their victory against Italy was a good start, and they aim to become one of the best teams in the world. Wales, led by young captain Dafydd Jenkins, will look to build on their improved performance against Scotland. They will bring their momentum to Twickenham and hope to defeat their fierce rivals. The key for Wales is to improve their kicking game and set-piece, which was problematic in their previous match. England, on the other hand, will target Wales' front five and disrupt their lineout. The battle between the scrum-halves, Alex Mitchell for England and Tomos Williams for Wales, will also be crucial. Ultimately, England is favored to win, but it will be a close match.
