Warren Gatland calls England’s Kyle Sinckler an ‘emotional timebomb’

Wood's Northampton team-mate James Haskell added: "Wales are a completely different side when they play against England in Cardiff". It has not been as smooth a start for Warren Gatland's charges, who needed a second-half meltdown to beat France in Paris before a much-changed team ground out a win against Italy.

Called England prop Kyle Sinckler a "timebomb" whose temperament was suspect.

"You rock up into the stadium, and I'm not sure whether the roof will be shut or open, but even if it's open: steep-sided on both sides, 75,000 people rammed in, you can nearly touch the front row of the supporters - it is absolutely insane", said the 2003 World Cup victor.

"We are looking forward to it and we know the Welsh fans are too and it's going to be a huge weekend in the Six Nations".

The young dragons will be greeted by a red-hot atmosphere as they return to their Stadiwm Zipworld home for the first time in this season's Championship. "He is aware of it, as are other players".

"Look, we won't be going out there trying to antagonise him, because that's not in our make-up". "It's a big game, but it's not the biggest game we've played in. I don't think people realise how vocal he is, how intuitive he is in reading the game". "The big challenge for England is that for five of their forward pack, it's the first time they are starting at the Principality Stadium".

"The bus will go through the centre of Cardiff, and they will not be the most popular bus in Christendom as they go through there". The common practice is to travel two days before and Gatland has warned England they may encounter traffic problems at a renowned M4 blackspot. "We're intense rivals and there is the historical context to it", Jones said. "Coming through Newport at about 5pm probably isn't the best thing to do - going through the Brynglas tunnels!" If they reproduce the level shown against Ireland and France it will be very hard for Wales to hold them off. "Isn't that wonderful? And won't it be even better when they're absolutely silent?', and you go 'Yeah, you're bang on", and you go to work".

"Brad Shields comes in for Nathan Hughes as a finisher as we just feel like it's going to be a high work-rate game". "He's talking about us", said Gatland.

Gatland has opted for Gareth Anscombe over Dan Biggar in his starting line-up, while Gareth Davies will start at scrum-half. "But I don't think anyone knows where we are at the moment, except for ourselves".

"When Land of Our Fathers bangs out, I promise you the hairs on the back of your neck just go up, and as an English rugby player you just go "This is the best place to be right now". The boys have been excellent in defence, we were able to meet France's power game for 60 minutes so we're hoping grown from that and take it to England".
