<div align="center">England v Wales</div> England go into this season's championship with all the momentum following their runner-up finish at the World Cup. England will be hoping to continue on in the form that saw them overcome their tricky pool oponents before dispatching Australia in Marseille and the hosts in Paris. With the form of the English sides in Europe confidence will certainly be high going into this opener against the Welsh who haven't won at Twickenham for 20 years now. Having said that the same can be said of the Welsh who will take huge confidence, not that they ever need it!!!, from the performance of the Ospreys and Cardiff in reaching the knockout stages. Add to that the confidence gained from the appointment of a world class coach in Gatland and the scene is set for a humdinger of a battle on Saturday. Gatland has done all the right things so far in his short tenure, no moreso than persuading Martyn Williams out of retirement. Debate rumbles on over who Ashton should pick for this opening encounter. So who should he pick but more importantly who do you think he'll pick? As for Gatland expectations are high and the pressure is on so can he deliver or will Wales be waiting another 2 years for a Twickenham victory?
