Are Wales really that good?

England may as well not bother turning up to play Wales at Twickenham next Saturday.

At least that's what most so-called expert pundits seem to think.

Former Welsh no.10 Jonathan Davies even goes as far as to say that the English pack will get smashed (and I assume that he doesn't mean that the English forwards will be out on the lash).

An English pack smashed by a Welsh pack at Twickenham? That'd be a first (and I remember the 70s).

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that Wales aren't favourites - they clearly are, and deservedly so - but the way certain sections of the media are building this Welsh team up is just silly.

A good team? Yes.

Unbeatable? Hardly.

England has Wales just where they want them-feeling overconfident.

Should be a great atmosphere, and they are showing the game live this weekend on BBC America in the US, so I am really looking forward to see if Wales can indeed win "The Triple Crown".

As good as it would be for England, or Wales to win this 2012 Six Nations, I think both teams need to keep the big picture in mind, and that is building with 2015 in mind.
