We have had a very good preparation this week and the intensity and executions in those sessions are going to put us in a good position for Saturday.“The way the team have come together has been superb. Owen Farrell, with a number of the senior players, has really moulded the squad together. They are working hard to improve their game to make sure we win.”Commenting on the change in the back row, Jones added:“Based on South Africa’s likely selection of an extra lineout jumper we have decided to start with Brad Shields, which improves our lineout.
