Quote of the day: "Magic Mike? The thing I have always tried to work on with him is to smile more," England forwards coach Graham Rowntree on full-back Mike Brown.

Tweet of the day: "Taken me until now to see the Galarza incident. Cannot believe he's been sent home for that. What a joke," former England prop David Flatman reacts after Argentina lock Mariano Galarza was suspended for nine weeks for making contact with New Zealand forward Brodie Retallick's 'eye or eye area'.

Moan of the day: On the eve of the match being billed as the biggest in the history of England and Wales encounters, it would have been fitting to have heard from either head coach or captain at the day's media access instead of their assistants and senior players.

Stat of the day: England captain Chris Robshaw will overtake Martin Johnson when he leads the Red Rose for a 40th time against Wales at Twickenham, second behind Will Carling who has been at the helm for 59 internationals.

Image of the day: PA24237495 - Owen Farrell looking relaxed ahead of his recall to the England team for Saturday's clash with Wales.

What to look out for tomorrow: Italy open the day's action when they face Canada at Elland Road (ITV 2.30pm), South Africa will be looking to atone for their shock defeat by Japan when they play Samoa at Villa Park (ITV 4.35pm) before all eyes turn to Twickenham for the seismic Pool A showdown between England and Wales (ITV 8PM).
