Itoje to miss England´s Six Nations clash with Wales

"At the start of the game, Ben's an industrious player who tackles well", Jones said. Emotionally he can be a bit of a timebomb.

He added: "It's going to be a tough game at the weekend, the atmosphere is going to be electric, but the boys are looking forward to getting out there and getting the job done". They have been very clinical in taking their chances.

Wales are seeking a 12th successive victory that would set a new national record and have already been acclaimed the best Welsh side of all time by a mischievous Jones, who continued the mind game when unveiling his starting XV.

Hooker Elliot Dee was a runner up in 2013 and is among Gatland's replacements, whilst Chiefs team mates Jack Nowell and Luke Cowan-Dickie feature in Eddie Jones' squad, with fellow victor that day Ross Moriarty packing down at No 8 for Wales.

After all, he and Wales coach Warren Gatland used to be flatmates. Their players are full of emotion and it's the biggest game they are going to play in their lives. "I wouldn't be disrespectful enough to say this was the greatest Welsh team ever. He's talking about us", said Gatland.

However Gatland is confident about his side's ability to spring a surprise, as he named Gareth Davies and Gareth Anscombe as his halfbacks.

Peter Tork of The Monkees dead at 77
Tork played a goofy, lovable character on the TV show, essentially becoming The Monkees equivalent of Ringo Starr in The Beatles. For a time after the end of the show, Tork was known to busk for change with a guitar in Ghiradelli Square.

Nowell, a British & Irish Test Lion no less, started in Dublin and will provide energy from the start as England's ninth forward while Moon was superb in the autumn.

"We know how important this game is for the rest of the championship". I don't think England know what team is going to turn up.

Former England and Chelsea captain John Terry on Tuesday attended training at the squad's Surrey base and was greeted with a receptive audience as he addressed players and coaches.

Gatland is disappointed by England insisting on the roof being open.

England have not lost to Wales in the Six Nations since their harrowing collapse in Cardiff in 2013 and enter the collision between the Championship's only unbeaten sides as favourites. He has been involved in a couple of incidents this Six Nations. Gatland saw the humour in that. He's going to be a good player for us. "And it's only England".
