My heart says England but my head says Wales. It's going to be really tight to call but I feel Wales will be slight favourites going into the game. If you look at each team from 1 to 23 I think Wales have a bit more class. Regardless England are looking good and I hope they snatch it. If England do lose it will be a huge mental block for them in RWC group game.

Looking forward to the game. As an Englishman I feel this is a bigger test for us than the Ireland game due to the fact that Wales' recent record against us is rather good. We need to change that on Sunday as come the World Cup next year we need to go into that group game against them with a positive attitude that were going to beat them and leave them with the task of trying to beat the Aussies, which they haven't done for some time. The return of Jonathan Davies is a massive plus for Wales, in the games i've watched involving them they have certaintly missed his dynamism in attack and defence. His partnership with Jamie Roberts should instantly make them a stronger offensive team, thus leaving Twelvetrees and Burrell with a shed load of work to do, but i'm confident they can cope with the Welsh pair as they've coped well with what's been put in front of them so far. The return to fitness of Tuilagi is a timely one, and with Davies restored to the Welsh backline Lancaster may give some consideration to restoring the Leicester battering ram to the England starting XV. I'd be surprised if he did though as Twelvetrees and Burrell have formed a strong partnership and deserve their chance against Wales. I'm sure come the World Cup Tuilagi will be in contention to start. I think it will be a close one, i'm going for England to win by 3 or 4 points and end Wales' hopes for three straight Six Nations titles.

i would say Ben Morgan is a vastly superior power runner, so the edge on that goes to morgan, Morgan is also very fast for a chubby guy so I only give faleteau a slight speed advantage, the only real thing faleteau is better at is being an energetic carrier, but this is rugby, Power is more important, edge morgan
