  1. Decent looking back line, but will their pack dominate @ Twickenham? Unsure about whether their props, Beard & combined b/row will have enough firepower. If they CAN get nr parity however, England better on the defensive money better than they were v Scotland. Don’t see Wales getting enough possession though, so England by 12.

  2. A near full strength side against a heavily experimental England side.

    England’s centre partnership worries me but I don’t think the England side, even at home will win this but depends if England have freedom to play or persist with a game plan that isn’t working ala 6 Nations, Wales by 6.
