England captain Owen Farrell has lent his support to the players he is scheduled to face on Saturday afternoon when England take on Wales at the Principality Stadium.

The Welsh players are threatening to strike for what is their biggest home fixture of the year, over a pay dispute with the WRU.

The seriousness of their threats were made even clearer today when their head coach Warren Gatland postponed his team announcement.

The support of someone with the stature of Owen Farrell will be heartening for the players who have been unfairly treated by their governing body.

We have been training and getting ready for this Test match and we have obviously been getting stuck into preparing as much as we can.

As far as a Welsh point of view, I am sure it is not nice to be in the position they are in.

I know a lot of them and played with a few of them and I can't imagine they're being unreasonable and I am sure they are fighting for what they think is right and hopefully that gets sorted.

"We went through, probably not as drastic a thing, at the club (Saracens) when we got dropped down to the Championship and a bit of uncertainty for a small time at our place," continued Farrell.

"I guess that has been going on for a while with these and it is not nice not knowing so I am sure they are going about it to get it sorted as quick as they can.

"We have been getting on with what we can control and that is us."
