If Wales show the same composure and quick thinking that Warren Gatland displayed during his team announcement for Saturday’s match at Twickenham, England’s six-year home unbeaten record in the tournament will come under threat.
Jones’s response to being asked questions about Womens Quincy Wilson Jersey opponents is to reply: “I’m the coach of http://www.newyorkgiants.us.com/WOMENS-DARIAN-THOMPSON-JERSEY.html England, mate,” and move on. But Gatland fielded every one, with the subjects ranging from Jones and his ambition to get England to the top of the world rankings by next year’s World Cup to Owen Farrell and whether he noticed on last year’s Lions tour to New Zealand an improvement in the England players compared with his two previous tours.
“I’m intrigued by watching Eddie,” said http://www.dolphinsauthenticofficial.com/YOUTH+XAVIEN+HOWARD+JERSEY Gatland, “the way he prepares and how he goes about doing things. You learn as much as you possibly can from others as the game changes. He doesn’t need to nick anything from me. I’m the one learning from him. He’s done a great job so I’m watching him particularly closely.
“You can’t argue with his ambition or their record in the past couple of seasons. Getting to No 1 has definitely been their target http://www.buccaneersofficialsonline.com/William-Gholston-Jersey.html and we’ll know by the autumn [when New Zealand visit Twickenham].

It’s probably the easiest of the three tours, isn’t it.”
A couple of years ago, there was an edginess to Gatland as Wales struggled to repeat the success of his first five years.
