Rugby Union – Jones hails Care achievements

Head coach Eddie Jones has hailed the achievements of Danny Care as the Harlequins star prepares to become the most capped scrum-half in England history. With Ben Youngs ruled out for the remainder of the tournament, Harlequins star Care comes in at scrum-half and will become the most capped English number nine against Wales on Saturday, beating the 77 caps of World Cup winner Matt Dawson. Meanwhile while Bath's Jonathan Joseph is the only other change from the team that beat Italy and will partner Owen Farrell in the centres as he replaces Ben Te'o, who drops to the bench. Jones has been impressed with Care and also feels his side are ready to go out at Twickenham and produce a performance against Wales, who are 4/1 with bet365 to beat England. He said: "We'll be well prepared and ready to go out there and beat Wales on Saturday." Jones added: "Danny Care very much deserves the honour of being the most capped England scrum-half and I am sure he'll make the most of his opportunity on Saturday."
