For the second year in a row, England are playing catch-up in their Six Nations fixtures with a tricky trip to Wales next on the agenda.


Eddie Jones' men were defeated by France in the opening round last year before going on to lift the trophy, and were toppled by Scotland in their 2021 opener.

They're not out of the running just yet, but England will know they can't afford any more slip-ups, and must rely on favours elsewhere if they are to catch France in pole position.

Wales went into the tournament in turmoil, with little expectation of ultimate victory, but a win over 14-man Ireland and an impressive, narrow triumph against Scotland has put them in the running.

Coach Wayne Pivac will see the England game as a potentially defining moment of his reign after failing to truly convince fans since taking charge following the 2019 World Cup. A win would boost his stock and place Wales in the driving seat. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Wales v England on TV and online.

Wales v England prediction

There could be fireworks in this one as an increasingly-confident Wales host England with a point to prove.

Both sides know that a win puts them in a good position to at least contend for the Six Nations crown, but it's a more important encounter for England.

A boisterous Welsh crowd could've tipped the game in the hosts' favour, but without that same home advantage, England will head to Cardiff without fear and, on paper, they're the favourites to come out with the all-important win.

Prediction: England win
