England Edge Past Wales As Try Controversially Disallowed

Warren Gatland GETTY Warren Gatland has had a pop at Eddie Jones

Bern has become the youngest veteran in the England set-up, the 20-year-old suddenly becoming one of the more experienced players in the team after head coach Simon Middleton added a selection of teenagers to his squad.

He said that England got there first and there was no downward pressure from Wales.

Rhys Patchell does have bottle.

And it was a ploy that paid early dividends as the rain came down at Twickenham.

Poppy Cleall and Ellie Kildunne ran in two tries each while Abigail Dow, Leanne Riley, Rachael Burford and Marlie Packer also crossed in a match watched by Prince Harry.

Patchell was finding Twickenham a lonely place, and moments later he would drag a penalty attempt wide of the upright.

The introduction of George North, replacing Patchell, signalled that Wales were far from finished despite being a score adrift and much like they had towards the end of the opening 40 minutes they lay siege on the England line in the Twickenham twilight. But it was clear he believed Mr. Newman had got it wrong.

But thanks to Eddie Jones' cutting criticism of the Welsh second string - thanks to the loss of five starting British and Irish Lions - particularly of fly-half Rhys Patchell, a fresh sting of animosity had been introduced into the contest.

This time inside centre Farrell landed a hard touchline conversion and England were 12-0 up in the 20th minute.

Geddert only wishes to convey his heart-felt sympathy to all victims of Larry Nassar's abuse", Geddert's attorney Chris Bergstrom, said in a statement .


The usual "finishers" - Jamie George, George Kruis et al - allied with a few less familiar faces provided ballast and impetus from the bench.

"In all seriousness I am very grateful he flagged it up".

In the second half Rowland Phillips' side couldn't get back into the game.

England has announced two changes, with scrumhalf Danny Care to earn a record 78th cap.

I still think there are frailties within the England team despite their seven-try demolition of Italy in Rome on Sunday. England did the former and earned the latter. If the Bath flanker, moulded in Wales with the Ospreys, can stay fit England have their long-term answer to the perennial No 7 problem.

Jones added: "You see the performances they've rolled out". It pays dividends on matchdays and in matches as tight as this.

Wales, on the other hand, will hope to make up ground as they travel to Ireland on the same day. Cue cheers from the majority, and befuddled looks from those in red.

Jones has faced Welsh opposite number Warren Gatland three times since taking charge of England, with a 25-21 in the 2016 Six Nations, a 27-13 win in a one off Test later that year and a memorable 21-16 victory in Cardiff last year, as Elliot Daly scored a late try. Patchell did not enjoy his finest evening but he will be back, this experience will only aid his development.

There is no room for niceties; Jones has a job to do and he will do whatever it takes to give England an edge in this game and in their quest to win a third successive Six Nations title.
