EDDIE JONES and Warren Gatland went for a curry before the Six Nations kicked off — now they are on to the argie-bhajis.
The two super-coaches, who broke naan bread in London last month, are on the verge of breaking into all-out war in Cardiff on Saturday.

Gatland footed the bill but is determined to make Jones pay for the Aussie’s dig about this Six Nations showdown being the biggest game of the Welsh players’ lives.
Kiwi Gat, 55, quipped yesterday: “He’s taking the mick. He’s talking about us saying it’s a big game. But it’s not the biggest game we’ve played in — it’s only England!”
Gatland was equally dismissive over Jones’ sarcastic comments that England would be facing the best Dragons team ever… because victory would give them a new Welsh record 12th win in a row.
He added: “The only quotes I can see about this being the ‘greatest Welsh team ever’ have come from Eddie Jones.

“I would not be disrespectful enough to say this was the greatest Welsh team ever. It’s a long way off.
“He’s the one talking us up. Not even the Press are talking us up.
“We’re all pretty aware that we’re on a good run and have done well in the last 12 months but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. For us, this is just another game — a big game and we’re pretty excited for it.”
Jones, 59, has a 4-0 record against Gatland since becoming England boss in 2016.
