Townsend said: “We now have an opportunity that we’ve seldom had in the Six Nations – to build on a Week One victory. It’s a quick turnaround and we’ll be well prepared for Wales. That will become our focus from Monday morning.”
“I don’t think we’ll be the favourites for the title. We certainly weren’t the favourites going into Twickenham for a one-off game. France now, I’m sure, everyone will be picking them as the favourites.”
