Coach Eddie Jones has told England they need to be ‘absolutely brutal’ if they want to make it back-to-back Rugby World Cup warm-up wins over Wales.

The two teams meet in Cardiff on Saturday, six days after England ran out 33-19 winners at Twickenham.

“We just need to be absolutely brutal around the tackle and the contest on the ground,” said Jones, whose side open up against Tonga on 22 September.

“If we’re good in that area, we’re in a good position to win the game.”

Wales inflicted a 21-13 defeat on Jones’ side in February on their way to a Grand Slam and the Australian is wary of the atmosphere that the hosts’ matches against their oldest international rivals can generate.

“We know that Wales are going to bring all that emotion and pride,” he added.

“We’re playing against a certain opposition that play a certain way so we want to be able to handle their tactics and be able to adapt and find a way to win.”

Flanker Lewis Ludlam has retained his place in England’s back row after making his debut in last weekend’s win, while wing Ruaridh McConnochie will win his first cap, provided he comes through a late fitness test.
