The potentially crucial match will see the long time rivals playing to secure their places at the top of the group table ahead of other Pool A opponents Australia, Fiji and Uruguay, as they play their second games of this year's contest.

Ahead of tonight's 8pm kick-of England coach Graham Rowntree said he believed Wales would be coming into the match with "doubts in their minds" after losing the last two games they have played against England.

But Wales fly-half Dan Biggar has insisted Wales will arrive at Twickenham confident and ready for battle as they "are fully aware of what is at stake."
