Wales fly-half Dan Biggar has questioned Owen Farrell and England’s moaning about his moment of ingenuity in Cardiff two weeks ago.
England’s players felt they had not been given enough time to get back into position after referee Pascal Gauzere had told their captain Owen Farrell to talk to his team about ill discipline.
“It’s one of those where if you were wearing a white shirt or support them, you were probably annoyed, but it was a bit over the top,” Biggar says.
“If you were wearing a red shirt, you’d probably not have seen anything wrong with it.

“The one thing I would say on it is when you look at the overhead image, England’s left edge on Jonny May’s side was all in position and ready to go.
“If I’d kicked it to Jonny’s side, he’d marked it and kicked it back 90 metres, would England be asking ‘Oh we’re all set now, you can take the kick at goal now?’
“That’s the issue I would have. Certainly from Neil Jenkins’ perspective, he’s always told us to make sure we’re alive for any moment. It was better for us to take seven than three in that situation.””
LIST: 5 England legends you didn’t know are still playing
1. Jonny Wilkinson
England’s legendary World Cup-winning fly-half has been back on the rugby pitch lately – helping Danny Cipriani get his kicking up to scratch ahead of his next move. Wilkinson, who still kicks goals three of four times a week, has reportedly enjoyed it so much that he could be playing for Lions legends XV in Bermuda later this year.
