That's the controversial call from Wales star Sam Warburton as the Red Dragons get set to host England in a crunch Six Nations match in Cardiff this weekend.
A late try from Elliot Daly ensured Jones's 100 per cent record as England head coach remained intact, while their record winning streak stretched to 16 matches along with keeping their hopes of recording a second Grand Slam championship success alive.
"I have some ideas of how we want to play against Italy".
"I thought it was a great game of Test rugby today, a really good contest all around the park, a lot of credit has got to go to Wales, I though their defence today was superb, they hit hard and they hit often".
As England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Italy and France gear up to the 2017 edition of the RBS Six Nations, we take a look at the wives and girlfriends of Rugby's elite. "It was a hell of a Test match". That showed by scoring a try in the 76th minute having defended a number of phases in our 22.
England will field one of their most callow-ever back-row combinations against a vastly experienced Welsh trio in their second Six Nations match in Cardiff on Saturday.
Both teams ought to be better off for Saturday after overcoming sluggish starts to win their opening matches.
How his players respond to the environment will offer Jones an insight into their potential.
North, who scored 28 tries in 66 Tests, was involved in the Wales captain's run session on Friday, but it is understood that his fitness fight could ultimately be a losing one. "They played well - people are underestimating how well France played and how good they are going to be".
"We defended heroically at times, but we just couldn't get a foothold in the last 10 minutes, and when we did, we didn't execute as well as we could".
Dan Biggar then intercepted as England pummelled the Welsh line as the home side looked to secure a famous win.
"You get a lot of stick but that's the way it should be". "The decision (was) made on what I think is the best thing for the team to win".
After successfully negotiating two very hard matches against France and Wales, Jones can look forward to welcoming Conor O'Shea's Italy to Twickenham in two weeks time.
"These are the games you want to be part of as a player and a coach". If you are showing the game, make sure the world is told by getting the game out there on social media and promoting it on-site with A-boards and PoS material.
England will also cross the bridge with confidence after coming back from a 13 point half-time deficit to France last weekend to win the game.
