England maintain their unbeaten run by the skin of their teeth
Liam Williams try combined with Leigh Halfpenny’s boot put the hosts 13-8 ahead at the break
Elliot Daly crossed with five minutes remaining to put visitors back in front
England extended their winning streak to 16 matches when a late Elliot Daly try secured them a 21-16 win over Wales in Cardiff on Saturday.
Fullback Leigh Halfpenny gave the Welsh a slender lead after two minutes before Owen Farrell levelled the scores with a kick of his own.
England then opened the try-scoring through scrum-half Ben Youngs but Farrell couldn’t add the conversion, 3-8.
Halfpenny reduced the deficit with another three-pointer before converting Liam Williams try to give Wales a 13-8 lead at the break.
Farrell and Halfpenny traded kicks after the restart as the game remained too hard to call, 16-11.
The England centre then narrowed the deficit with another kick before Elliot Daly’s converted score gave the visitors the lead, 16-21.
It was a poor clearing kick from Jonathan Davies that gifted England that final chance, and Wales will be left ruing that lapse, just as the visiting supporters celebrated it with glee.
