Jenkins unperturbed by Jones' Wales dig

Neil Jenkins and Warren Gatland

Neil Jenkins has been one of Warren Gatland's assistant coaches since the 2007 start of the Wales boss reign

It was the kind of opportunistic score some England teams of the recent past might have squandered, while more than a few Red Rose coaching set-ups would have had second thoughts about whether a player of Daly's attacking talent was well-suited to the role of full-back, the last line of defence.

Neil Jenkins is paying little attention to Eddie Jones' pre-match comments as Wales and England gear up for action next week.

England head coach Jones followed up his team's 44-8 destruction of France last weekend by describing Warren Gatland's team - now unbeaten in 11 games - as "the greatest Welsh side ever" and that the Principality Stadium "has never been a fortress for me". "It's up to Eddie what he says", Jenkins said.

"We know what it is, it's Wales versus England, it's in Cardiff and it is a enormous game".

England play Wales in Cardiff on February 23 before finishing their campaign at home to Italy and then Scotland.

"No disrespect to a very good Scotland side but playing at Twickenham is a tough ask for any side", Jenkins said. "He's got an opinion and he's entitled to that".

Ireland lost their opening game of the campaign to England and though they recovered well enough to beat Scotland in their second outing they have failed to secure a bonus point so far. "I never see him have a bad game and that's why he's one of the best players in the world, if not the best player in the world".

"[Cardiff] might not be intimidating for England".

"We did that really well with the communication from the outside with the wingers and centres", explained Daly, capped 27 times by England.

"England are a good side who have kicked more than any other team in their two games", said Jenkins, who kicked the winning conversion at Wembley 20 years ago when Wales denied England a grand slam. Maybe he's right in what he's saying.

"He is a top coach who has done a fantastic job with England but I do not think that whatever is said will have much of a bearing on the game".

"I think the emotions are pretty high at the moment, and we are still a week-and-a-half away from the game". We are under no illusions about what's coming and know we need to play better than we have in the two games we've played, because we have not really fired a shot yet.
