England 27-13 Wales: England earn comfortable victory Wales

  • Tries fromBen Youngs and Quins’ Jack Clifford and Marland Yarde saw England come back to win
England began preparations for their Summer tour of Australia with a resounding 27-13 victory over Wales at Twickenham.

After making a slow start to the match England recovered and went on to outscore Wales by five tries to one.

England remain unbeaten under Eddie Jones who will be thrilled with the scoreline given that the 14 point margin was achieved without any players from England’s two top teams as the Premiership final was contested yesterday.

In addition England flyhalf George Ford had a shocker of a match with the boot as he was only successful in one of his kicks.

England forward Joe Launchbury was named man of the match.
