Jones’s message is the noisier the better in Cardiff with the prospect of being the nation to end England’s 15-match winning run is likely to bring the Principality Stadium to boiling point at Saturday’s Six Nations showdown.
“I’d be disappointed if it wasn’t,” said Jones. “You go to certain countries in the world and you expect that. You get that in Wales, you get it in South Africa particularly when you are on the veld. That’s part of the build-up to the game.
“To me that is one of the great challenges of Test rugby – to go to those places and play in those areas. You find if you play well that the supporters aren’t saying the same at the end of the game as they were at the start of the game.

“We’re not concerned what they do, before or after the game. All we’re concerned about is that we control them during the game.
“We want that sort of attitude that it doesn’t matter what happens. If they start throwing daffodils during the warm-up or make us stand out there for 15 minutes or they close or open the roof, or we have an oscillating roof, we can cope with all that.”
Both sides go into the game unbeaten after the first round of the championship, although England cut it fine with a narrow 19-16 win over France.
And Jones is promising a much-improved performance this weekend.

“I feel like we lost. We wanted to go out there and set the benchmark for the Six Nations and we didn’t and we’re disappointed by that. We want to go out this week and redeem ourselves. And that’s a good feeling,” said Jones.
“I didn’t sleep on Saturday night, I know that, so the dog was unhappy and the wife was unhappy. I was just disappointed in the way I coached the team thinking about what we could have done better.
“I’ve found that after those sort of nights you’re at your most lucid, you’re thinking is pretty clear. You wake up in the morning and you’ve got the solutions there.
“The main mistake we made was that we added some things to our preparation with the World Cup in mind but this week we will be a bit more focused – we will pare things down.”
