Wales are not afraid of England at Twickenham

Henry

Playing against England at Twickenham is no longer a scare story for Welsh rugby players.

And after their excellent fight back last weekend at the Principality Stadium so nearly paid off for Scotland, the Red Dragons are surely no longer afraid of a 27-0 deficit.

Yes, Wales last won a Six Nations match in London in 2012, but Warren Gatland and co have the ability to pull a rugby rabbit out of the hat.

Even at Twickenham.

According to Adam Jones, the Welsh team knows that it must steel itself for an English storm at Twickenham.

“The Roses will be in our faces and the spectators will also fuel them. But once the worst is over, you come to the realization that they’re really just like the rest of us,” said the former Red Dragon prop.

Jones believes that the Red Dragon forwards must fight fire with fire.

“If we can handle the pressure and not give up too big a lead, we can do well. Playing against England at Twickenham is no longer so intimidating.”
