Have a gander at these. The first will be extremely competitive. The Welsh will be looking to press their advantage over England in the game at Twickenham in August.

I very much doubt there will be a repeat of Gareth Jenkins' mistake in 2007 when he sent a 2nd/3rd XV across the border whom England promptly massacred 62 points to 5!

Strangely enough, he didn't last long as the Wales coach..

There will still be a need to evaluate players on the fringe of World Cup squad selection. Who knows, maybe for these games, the National coaches will reach agreement on the strength of the teams that they field?

We spent our honeymoon following Wales in the 2007 World Cup, and concluded, long before the defeat by Fiji, that not only was Jenkins for the chop, but also that no Welshman can thrive as the National Coach, as he will always come from the wrong village!
