Six Nations 2017: Wales are Webb’s concern, not England

Tuesday, 7 Feb 2017 :  Scrum-half Rhys Webb says Wales will concentrate on themselves rather than England before their “massive” Six Nations meeting in Cardiff on Saturday.

Wales top the table on points difference after their 33-7 win in Italy while England narrowly beat France in their opener.

“There’s a lot of talk about England and Ireland – they played some good rugby in the autumn,” said Webb.

“Let everyone keep talking them up, we’ll just go about our job.”

Wales are dealing with a six-day turnaround in between matches while England have seven days between games.

“We’ll come back in on Tuesday and have a look at England but we’ll be concentrating on ourselves,” Webb.

He says the traditional rivalry between Wales and England is more for the supporters than the players.

“It’s a massive fixture, a good one for the crowd and the fans.

“Personally it’s good to play them at home, but I’m not going to get too carried away by Wales-England – it’s just another game and the main focus is on ourselves.”

Wales do not plan to issue any medical updates until Wednesday.

Fly-half after Dan Biggar was forced off in the break in Rome by a rib injury and George North finished the game limping because of a thigh problem, even though he sped clear for a 70-metre try set up by replacement number 10 Sam Davies.
