England Women make nine changes ahead of facing Wales in Six Nations

England Women make nine changes ahead of facing Wales in Six Nations”

England will take on Wales at 4.45am this Sunday.

Head coach Simon Middleton has made nine changes to his England Women side ahead of facing Wales on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Arena & Sky Sports Mix. People are forgetting that Wales are on the back of 11 wins.

Despite Wales' winning run, England deserve their status as favourites for the quality of their performances this year.

Annie is a regular at England sessions and she distracted Jones from the contact session happening behind him. The last two meetings at the Principality Stadium have seen the visitors win 21-16 so England will be full of belief heading into this weekend. There's a good chance there'll be tractors...

The current back row of Josh Navidi, Justin Tipuric and Ross Moriarty are performing well and have experience in such a big game, but many feel that Young deserved a place on the bench ahead of Aaron Wainwright this Saturday.

May has been in sensational form and is recognised as one of the best wingers in the world. May scored twice against Wales last season and with his confidence at an all-time high the prolific finisher is backed to cross the line again helping England to another victory. With time ticking away and Wales trailing 9-8, they were awarded a penalty wide out on the right, with Henson stepping up to have a go from 48 metres.

As they did in Paris this year, Wales were able to turn the tables, first with a penalty from James Hook. Two bonus-point victories have set them up perfectly for the trip to Wales this weekend.

Saturday's clash kicks off at 18:45 (SA time). Henry Slade, 12. Manu Tuilagi, 11.

Having won the Slam in 2012, Wales found themselves readying for England who were in search of a first Grand Slam in a decade.

England have been brilliant to win there - but you have to be.

They did that and more romping to a 30-3 success - a record margin of victory over their rivals - in an electric atmosphere under the roof. Yet when asked about Sinckler's combustible nature - he received a lecture from referee Nigel Owens two weeks ago after he petulantly smacked the scrum cap of French lock Arthur Iturria, and received a seven-week ban for gouging in 2017 - Gatland agreed it could prove an issue.
