England coach Eddie Jones turns on Wales star Rhys Patchell

England coach Eddie Jones has looked to pile the pressure on Wales fly-half Rhys Patchell ahead of Saturday’s Six Nations showdown at Twickenham.

The Scarlets number 10 will be winning only his sixth cap at Twickenham with the majority of those coming off the bench.



“Patchell hasn’t played much Test rugby,” he said.

“He is a young guy, he’s inexperienced, he is their third choice 10.

“He has got to get the ball wide for them and that’s going to be a big job for him.

“It is going to be different to playing against Scotland. Scotland couldn’t cope with the expecation. He’s got to cope with the expectation of playing well.

“He has got to find guys willing to help him, because he is going to be under some heat mate.

“Every time Patchell looks up he is going to see JJ (Jonathan Joseph) in his vision. It’s not a great sight.”
