Shaun Edwards barks out orders at today's training session
Shaun Edwards is hoping Wales' experience of playing in big games will be to their advantage ahead of this weekend's RBS 6 Nations title decider with England.
I'm hoping our experience will really help us on Saturday. It is a huge game
Stuart Lancaster brings his England side to the Millennium Stadium on Saturday afternoon knowing a win would secure a first Grand Slam in a decade.
Edwards though is hoping Wales can use last year's Six Nations success to get the better of England in what is already a hugely anticipated encounter.
"I'm pleased we've got the experience of playing in big games before," said the Wales defence coach.
"Most of our team have played in a Grand Slam game. A lot of them have played in two, some even in three and have played in World Cup semi-finals.
"I'm hoping our experience will really help us on Saturday. It is a huge game."
After England's narrow victory over Italy on Sunday, the destination of the championship is still to be decided. Wales know that if they beat England by eight points or more, they will retain their title while a seven point win would also do as long as England fail to score two tries more than Rob Howley's men.
England have won all four of their games so far and while looking forward to the test, Edwards knows the threat Lancaster's men pose.
"It's great that rugby can have such a good ending to the Six Nations," added the former Wigan great.
"I think England are the favourites going into this game on Saturday. They'll be well aware of the expectation and pressure on them - they haven't had a Grand Slam for 10 years, that's a long time.
"First and foremost we have to stop them getting as many points as possible and when we get the ball we need to score as many points as we can."
To Edwards' pleasure, Wales haven't conceded a try in their last three games - shutting out the French, Italians and Scottish on three consecutive away trips.
And with the championship on the line, Edwards is hoping for a repeat as he looks to nullify an English attack where centre Manu Tuilagi looks like being the obvious threat.
"The lads are very determined to concede the least tries in the competition. We've had a history of doing that in the last few years and hopefully we'll concede the least tries this year," he said.
"We know every point they score is going to make our job a little bit harder.
"We've got the lowest penalty count in the campaign but we were pretty disappointed with a couple of instances at the weekend.
"I know it's something Rob will be speaking very vigorously about this week."
Edwards confirmed that Gethin Jenkins, who missed the win over Scotland, is back in training while captain Ryan Jones underwent a scan today on the shoulder problem that forced him from the Murrayfield pitch.
But in a statement which could well sum up the mood throughout Wales, Edwards expressed the magnitude of Saturday's clash.
"There's a lot of interest in the game. It's a great thrill to be involved in big sporting occasions and all our lads feel exactly the same," he said.
"This is a huge sporting occasion and I'm hoping the experience we've had will help us."
