Wales will 'smash' England - Gatland

Wales coach Warren Gatland says his side will set out to "smash" rookie England centre Sam Burgess, as well as the rest of his team when they meet on Saturday.

League convert Burgess, 26, has played only 112 minutes of international rugby union and will line up opposite Jamie Roberts, who has 70 Wales caps.

"We won't be trying to single out Sam Burgess at all, we will be going out there to smash him like everyone else," said Gatland.

The two sides meet in Saturday's World Cup Pool A match at Twickenham, kick-off 20:00 BST.
