Forwards coach Steve Borthwick stated that England are excited to face Wales in Sunday's encounter.
The game at Twickenham is used as a preparation by both the teams as England will be heading for a crucial tour of Australia in June while Warren Gatland's men will take on the All Blacks in the away fixtures.
The Old Mutual Wealth Cup between the two teams has replaced the traditional end-of-season non-cap international against the Barbarians and also will be used to compensate the Premiership clubs for the disruption incurred during the World Cup last year.
England coach Eddie Jones has announced a 26-man squad for the game which doesn't include players from Saracens and Exeter as they lock horns with each other in the Premiership final a day before.
The former lock believes even though England miss stars from Saracens and Exeters, the Grand Slam champions start as favourites for Sunday's encounter.
"From our perspective this is a Test match. It feels like a huge and exciting Test match," the forwards coach said.
"At this point we've sold 78,000 tickets so it's going to be a sell out or very close to a sell out.
"The supporters are excited about it and it's a brilliant opportunity to be playing this game in May in what should be a good game.
"We've prepared the best we can and we want to win as many matches as we can."
