Good start a must in cross-bor­der skir­mish

Gloucestershire Echo - - DECKS WEEK -

» ENG­LAND travel to Cardiff to play Wales on Satur­day and with both coun­tries un­beaten in the Six Na­tions, some­thing must give.

Eng­land are in blis­ter­ing form so far with stun­ning vic­to­ries over Ire­land and France.

Wales have had two stut­ter­ing per­for­mances against the French and Ital­ians but it is pos­si­ble for Wales to sud­denly find their form at home and up­set the English resur­gence.

The key for both sides will be the start.

If Eng­land can set­tle and score early which they have done in re­cent in­ter­na­tion­als, it will be a mas­sive boost, place doubt in the Welsh minds, cre­at­ing an at­mos­phere in the sta­dium of ten­sion.

If Wales start well, they will start a roller coaster of emo­tion that could carry them to a stun­ning vic­tory.

I have Eng­land by 10 points.
