Everything you need to know about Wales and the 2021 Six Nations Championship

  • ITV Cymru Wales Sports Reporter Beth Fisher meets a Welsh rugby superfan

Wales won their opening two Six Nations games, beating Ireland and Scotland, and victory over England would secure a Triple Crown, while also keeping title hopes firmly on track.

The side's injury situation has improved considerably ahead of Saturday's Six Nations clash against England in Cardiff.

Head coach Wayne Pivac was without a quarter of his original 36-man squad through injuries or suspension for the Murrayfield appointment with Scotland 10 days ago.

But players like fit-again backs George North, Jonathan Davies and Johnny Williams are set to be in the selection mix, with only scrum-half Tomos Williams (hamstring) currently unavailable.

Wales assistant coach Jonathan Humphreys said: "Everybody has reported back and we (almost) have a full bill of health. Right now, there is a lot of competition for places." 

"We understand how important the middle game of this tournament is, especially if you have won the first two, so this game is huge in all aspects.

"We are all aware that this (Triple Crown) is on the line, but we don't need to talk about it, we need to talk about how we are going to play, how we are going to start (the game)."

Wales played their opening Six Nations match at the Principality Stadium behind closed doors, with no crowds.

The stadium was previously the Dragon's Heart Hospital, where coronavirus patients were treated, before it was decommissioned, meaning Wales played all six of their autumn internationals at Parc y Scarlets in Llanelli ahead of this year's tournament.

Wales was without Liam Williams in their opening Six Nations clash after the British and Irish Lions back was given a three-game ban for his red card in the Scarlets' Guinness PRO14 derby defeat by Cardiff Blues.

Josh Adams is serving a two-match ban imposed by the Welsh Rugby Union after breaching Covid-19 protocols by attending a family gathering.
