England captain Chris Robshaw has called on his teammates to send out a message to Wales as the duo prepare for their Six Nations showdown this weekend, according to Sky Sports

A victory would see the home nation secure the Triple Crown at Twickenham, which will also host the clash between the two rivals at next year's World Cup. 

Following Wales triumph in last year's title decider when Wales embarrassed England with a 30-3 win, Robshaw has urged his side to put recent results behind them and get one over on their rivals. 

"We play at Twickenham in the pool stages of the World Cup and of course there's still next year's competition as well," he said.

"If Wales win every game going into the World Cup, it's not going to fill you with confidence, is it?

"You want to make sure you can get one over on them and get the results when it matters."

England would've had sleepless nights following the mauling last year but Robshaw has maintained his stance that the side have forgotten about the performance and they must ensure they make up for it with a performance on Sunday.

"I don't think there's any point in replaying last year's game. What it shows is what not to do," he added.

"Of course people remember what happened and they probably always will because you remember those types of occasion.

"We probably switched off a little bit, chased the game too early and eventually it played into their hands. By that stage the game was gone and it was a long way back.

"We're now a lot better at dealing with those situations, about how we get back into the game.

"Last year doesn't have too big an influence on Sunday. Of course it was disappointing and they are a side that have beaten us and we haven't beaten them.

"But look at what is up for grabs for us on Sunday - a Triple Crown and that's massive. We haven't won that before, especially on home soil. And the winners potentially go for a decider next week.

"There's too much at stake this year to worry about what happened before."
