Stuart Lancaster, coach of the England Rugby team spoke to the media on Wednesday (January 28) ahead of the start of the Six Nations tournament on February 6.

England travel to Cardiff to face Wales in the opening fixture with coach Stuart Lancaster keen to go one better than his three second place finishes in his fourth tilt at the title.

"It is a big game but as I say there's five big games coming round the corner in this Six Nations. The priority is to get your process right, get your detail right, get the players to understand the game plan and then the game should come to us really on the day. We've got to make sure we prepare well and the rest should look after itself," he said.

England have had to deal with a rash of injuries this season and are still some way from being able to select a settled side.

Midfield remains a minefield with Manu Tuilagi likely to miss the whole tournament and Brad Barritt, Luther Burrell and Kyle Eastmond all fighting to overcome knocks, leaving Billy Twelvetrees and Jonathan Joseph likely to be wrapped in cotton wool in training this week.
