A scrappy, defensive start from both sides saw poor Welsh lineouts and strong English scrums gave England the attacking edge and a Jonny May try to lead 16-9 at HT. Second half had matching penalties from Farrell & Biggar and a try saving tackle from Farrell kept England in front but a spirited Wales who suffered yet more injuries fought back with a Davies try & a superb winning Biggar penalty. Robshaw turned down a kick to level and that was that.
