"Now, they have a chance".
Halfpenny, who is approaching 700 career points for Wales, has 75 caps for his country. No doubt they'll have respect for England, they're a different animal, but Wales will be confident.
With Joseph now back in the XV, there are going to be fewer opportunities for Wales to get wide and around the English defence.
England boss Eddie Jones has publicly queried whether Wales fly-half Patchell has "the bottle" for a high-octane occasion such as Saturday's Twickenham showdown.
World Rugby has confirmed that it was contacted by England but exonerated Wyn Jones on the basis that Gaüzère had already opened dialogue with the TMO.
Asked about Saturday's French referee Jerome Garces, Jones said: 'He is a very experienced referee.
Russell, aware there might have been an infringement, rushed to take the conversion, only for the Wales lock to effectively block the kick as he strode towards the referee. I'm very grateful that Eddie has flagged that up with World Rugby.
Scotland welcome France to Murrayfield on Sunday with both sides reeling from opening week losses, albeit in different circumstances.
It's a big part of my homework, to look back on previous games against them. Wales, though, will not be daunted by the task ahead, having toppled England three times on home soil during Warren Gatland's coaching reign - twice in the Six Nations and also claiming a dramatic 2015 World Cup pool win.
"My gut feeling is JJ will start the game well against Wales". "I thought that was right out of order last week".
"For us it's about highlighting their key players and we would be silly not to think they have those sort of personnel".

Round 2 gets underway in Dublin on Saturday afternoon as Joe Schmidt's Ireland, fresh from a thrilling victory in France, welcome Italy to the Aviva Stadium. That's six British and Irish Lions players unavailable for Wales Rugby through injury, and even George North is only fit enough for a place among the replacements.
Head coach Gatland is due to announce his starting line-up for Twickenham today.
Scotland will be hoping to bounce back from their disappointing showing when they take on France at home, although history suggests they may be waiting a while for their next Murrayfield win over Les Bleus. "I knew the team had the potential to do it and we've seen Scarlets do it week in, week out in the Pro14".
"I've been hammering it into the lads this week that we need to get excited and look to fill those jerseys up in front of our own people", said Laidlaw. New Zealand are the only side to win in Edinburgh during that period.
