Jonathan Davies is playing down the importance of the clash with England
It's a Six Nations title decider where Wales have the chance to end England's hopes of a first Grand Slam in 10 years.
At the end of the day it's just another rugby game and we need to make sure we get the result that's needed
For most Welsh rugby fans, Saturday's Six Nations clash at the Millennium Stadium is the biggest game since last year's Grand Slam finale against France.
But centre Jonathan Davies, who has started all of Wales' matches in this year's campaign, says Rob Howley's side will be treating it like any other game.
"Italy did us a favour - we didn't want a game where we had to beat England by 20 odd points," said the Scarlets man.
"It makes it interesting but it's just a normal week for us. We're going about our business, we've been in these big games before and we've got the experience of that. It's important for us to keep our heads down.
"This group of players are used to that big game environment. We know what to expect and everyone is looking forward to coming back to Cardiff for a very important game."
With Saturday's clash throwing up a number of intriguing direct match ups in terms of this summer's Lions tour, there is much more at stake than just the Six Nations Championship.
Davies though, continues to downplay the importance of a game where Wales need to win by eight points to retain their Six Nations title.
"At the end of the day it's just another rugby game and we need to make sure we get the result that's needed," added the 24-year-old.
"Eight points - we can build on that. We need to make sure our defence is on top and it's important we get momentum to start with, play in the right areas and not put pressure on ourselves."
One thing that may help the Welsh cause is their water-tight defence. Needing to keep England's points to a minimum, Davies knows his side's defence, led by centre partner Jamie Roberts, needs to carry on its fine recent form.
He added: "We need to make sure we trust our defensive patterns and keep doing what we do. It's been hugely effective - not to concede a try in the last three games is a huge plus for us and we want to keep that up.
"The players are concentrating on one thing and that's the result.
"Last year we were all excited and wanted the game to come. This time we can call on those experiences and know what's to be expected.
"These games are massive and you want to be a part of them. You just don't want to come out on the wrong side of the result."
