Plenty of this game has been played in the swirling air so far and Brown fumbled a Patchell high kick to knock on and hand a scrum to Wales. For the first time really in the game Wales get it out wide right and run with it. Wales then turn it back! Patchell kicks over to the left corner and in the scramble Anscombe and Watson go for the ball. It looks as though Watson touched down to kill the ball but the referee wants the TMO. Wales have a penalty, however, and Patchell kicks through.

A lovely move off the lineout for England sees Watson withstand a challenge from Williams after a quick Cole pass. Itoje plays it to Farrell, who gains the yards. Dylan Hartley returns to the field after an assessment. Wales are starting to throw their weight around here, forcing England to kick clear on one, two, three occasions. Some lovely hands from Alun Wyn Jones almost sets Rhys Patchell through but England close out and eventually get the turnover.

They kick to a metre line out. England are taking advantage of any spilled ball out there. Wales struggling to find any territory, while the England backs are doing all the moving here.

The ball is swirling around in the air as Gareth Davies clears 20 metres from his own line. The ball is all over the place at the moment. Rhys Patchell has a chance to get on the scoreboard with a metre kick dead centre.

It sways left of the post. What a kick from Owen Farrell! The ball spills out to the centre, who immediately looks left and plays a delightful ball to the wing… where Jonny May is charging in to slide over. Farrell misses the conversion. And there's a collision already as Hartley takes a blow to the head. Hartley is off for a concussion test. Both teams out doing their normal drills. England were susceptible to defensive mistakes against Italy last weekend but their handling overall was good.

The ball may feel like a soap today. Expect the off twist and turn from both sides. The players are out on the Twickenham turf warming up. A wet, miserable day. We'll find out on Saturday," Jones said of the six-cap year-old. So, Leigh Halfpenny is out of the squad. Gareth Anscombe has come in ahead of Liam Williams, which for some is seen as a surprise selection. It was also posed that Williams may offer some insight into this England side, what with him sharing a club dressing room with plenty of the Red Rose squad at Saracens.

Owen Watkin, meanwhile, had travelled with the squad despite losing his place on the bench as George North returned. Leigh Halfpenny has been pulled out of the Wales XV with a foot infection. The swelling has been too much for the player to take part. Glasgow hopeful over Fagerson leg injury after prop taken to hospital. Newcastle grab first win to send Worcester bottom.
