England travel to Cardiff on Saturday, with their Grand Slam ambitions on the line. The Red Rose overcame France in an unconvincing manner last weekend, and know that if they can get over Wales, they will give themselves every chance of reaching the final game in Dublin with their unbeaten record intact.
Although the Welsh are struggling for form of late, they are always likely to put in a big performance at home. The prospect of ending England’s run of consecutive test wins should offer an extra incentive.
However, Rob Howley may have to plan without two of his key operators, as he sweats over the fitness of George North and Dan Biggar.

The duo missing the test would be a huge boost to Eddie Jones, as the task ahead on Saturday evening in the Principality Stadium would become a bit less daunting.
However, they will have to wait and see over the coming days whether or not Biggar and North will make the game.
