Wayne Pivac’s side are busy preparing for the game at Principality Stadium and have been boosted by some of their senior figures returning to training.

Backs Johnny Williams, Jonathan Davies and George North are all back in action and so too is Cardiff Blues forward Josh Navidi. Wing Josh Adams has also returned to the squad.

“Everything is positive from that aspect,” said attack coach Jones.

“They’re all taking part in some sort of training and the great thing for us is, come next week, we’ll have a healthy squad available to us which is what we want.”

Jones said North (foot), Davies (ankle) and Navidi (neck) are all recovered.

Centre Williams is also firing on all cylinders while Leigh Halfpenny and Hallam Amos go through the required return-to-play protocols following their head injuries.

Scrum-half Tomos Williams is one player who won’t face England due to a hamstring problem.

“I think we’re in a good position. We used the autumn series to give opportunities to a lot of young guys and new players,” said Jones.

“That was the whole aim, to develop strength in depth. I was delighted with the experience those boys gained in the autumn and how they’ve hit the ground running with us in this campaign.

“We respect England as they’re Six Nations champions. There is a huge amount of experience in their side. From our perspective, we’re really looking forward to it.

“We know it’s going to be a physical challenge, but we’re back in Cardiff and are two from two.

“There is a lot of momentum and huge amount of excitement here.”
