Wales v England
Wales stormed to the title last year by destroying England.

England face holders Wales in the 2014 Six Nations at Twickenham

Where to Watch Live

England v Wales is live on BBC One and BBC One HD from 3pm on Sunday 9 March. Live commentary is on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Another weekend in 2014's compelling Six Nations championship, and yet another match which will go a long way to determining which team will prevail come next weekend.

Holders Wales kept alive hopes of claiming a record third championship in a row with an emphatic win over France, while England reignited their own charge with a thrilling victory over Ireland.

For England and Stuart Lancaster, Sunday's meeting at Twickenham is not only a chance for him to pit his wits against British and Irish Lions tour-winning coach Warren Gatland or his side to take a giant step towards the title but to avenge defeat in Cardiff 12 months ago.

Then, England were blown away by Wales at the Millennium Stadium and with a host of injury problems face a daunting task to claim a third successive win.

Gatland can call upon 12 Lions players for the visit to Twickenham, with 11 of the starting team having begun the thumping win over England which sealed the championship in 2013.

England have a dearth of experience but have been the most threatening team in attack in the opening three games, and Mike Brown will again prove pivotal to their chances to keeping their title hopes alive going into the final weekend.

What the Coaches Say

Stuart Lancaster: "Wales are a very experienced side and I have great respect for the achievements of Warren Gatland. It will be a good tactical challenge, but that challenge is not only at head-coach level.

"It's about the whole management team, not just one man. And while they'll put a challenge to us, we'll be putting one to them. It was a difficult day for us in Cardiff last year but this is a different game."

Warren Gatland: "We were happy with the response and performance against France but we know we will have to raise it another level on Sunday."

"We are really looking forward to going up to Twickenham, England have performed well so far and it's set up to be a great game with all to play for."
