Jones begins mind games, opts for open roof in Wales

Eddie Jones joked that England may not have another comeback in them after they completed a second dramatic Six Nations turnaround in as many weeks to extend their remarkable unbeaten run.

Leading 16-0 at half-time, England were made to sweat by their visitors, who scored three tries in the second period, only for the boot of Owen Farrell to keep them at bay.

While Jones may not be too pleased with how close the game was, he also admitted England are becoming a side which are incredibly hard to break down.

Samuel Cherouk's France Women's Six Nations champions looked to have got their title defence off to the best possible start when they went in at 13-0 up at Twickenham last weekend.

England won in Cardiff two years ago, but some players will still bear the scars of 2013 when they travelled seeking a Grand Slam, but were hammered 30-3.

Donald Trump denounces negative polls, coverage as "fake news"
When O'Reilly described the Russian leader as a "killer", Trump implied that America had a similar reputation and could not judge. A CBS News poll released Friday found a majority, 51 percent, disapproves of the ban and 45 percent approves it.

When Wales had the chance to clear their lines after Kyle Sinckler had been turned over five metres out, the ball was passed to Davies, a centre, rather than Biggar or Halfpenny.

"You get a lot of stick but that's the way it should be".

He's hoping for better against England where they have a competitive record, particularly at home. "These are the games you want to be part of as a player and a coach", the former Australia and Japan boss added.

That being said, there's nothing like an Anglo-Welsh clash in Cardiff to get these two sides firing on all cylinders, the only question being who capitalises most on their upgrade in Cardiff this Saturday.

The England head coach had maintained an air of indifference over the roof all week, claiming that he did not particularly care whether it was open but that he welcomed the hostile atmosphere that is enhanced by closing it.

Trump's Russia-US Comparison Rejected by Democrats and Republicans
Trump and Putin spoke on the phone last Saturday, and the two discussed cooperation in the fight against ISIS, among other areas. The change allows companies to deal with Russia's security service, which licenses such exports under Russian law.

"It is going to take a huge game out of us to get a win, and it will be one of the biggest games of the Championship for sure".

"But we've got to win against Italy to win the Six Nations". It should have provided the means to wind down the clock but, while England's minds were clear, the home side, who had had one day less to prepare, were struggling to focus.

"We had a few guys going into the game who weren't absolutely 100 per cent".

The Northampton hooker had the ball ripped from him by Biggar as England were threatening midway through the first-half and was replaced by Jamie George in the 49th minute.

England survived another scare when scrum-half Rhys dived over a ruck and fell inches short of a try. It's a fair judgement to compare them to the All Blacks right now - that's how good they are.
