Eddie Jones & England Make Principality Stadium Request Ahead Of Clash With Wales
Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
England boss Eddie Jones is looking to make it two wins on the bounce against Wales this weekend – with the pair set to meet again on Saturday, except this time at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
While England got the better of their neighbours at Twickenham on Sunday, the last time the pair met at the home of Welsh rugby, it was Gatland’s side that prevailed on the way to a Grand Slam.
That day Eddie Jones requested the roof be open, despite Wales wanted to keep it closed. This time round however, Jones has changed his tune, requesting that the roof be closed on Saturday.
Jones has made it clear that he wants it closed to help replicate conditions at the World Cup, with England’s first two games in Japan send to take place under a closed roof. What do you think? Open or closed? Who would benefit more?
