Six Nations 2017: Round-Up From Saturday February 11

Six Nations 2017: Round-Up From Saturday February 11

The reigning Six Nations champions have now won 16 Tests in a row, all but one of those successes coming under Jones, and the head coach found plenty of positives from the latest triumph.

It was end-to-end action in an open and fast-flowing second half, with both sides going for broke and Moriarty hit his opposite No.8 Nathan Hughes hard to lift the England man back.

"We were disappointed with how we played against France because we wanted to start with a bang".

And wing George North, who missed the England match due a leg injury, is set to be fit for Scotland on February 25.

A 30-second film shared on BBC Wales" social media pages saw a series of Wales fans apparently unable to come up with an answer to the question: "What's good about England?'

In 2013, the roof was closed as Wales denied England the Grand Slam, winning 30-3.

Wales looked to be edging to a heroic victory as a Liam Williams try and 11-points from the boot of Leigh Halfpenny had earned a 16-14 advantage.

Wales took their talents to Rome where they started slowly but after the arrival of nippy replacement five eighths Sam Davies got their game together and spanked Italy.

One area where Wales would appear to to possess a considerable edge is the back-row.

Rob Howley (Wales): "They [North and Biggar] are two experienced players, they are important players for us - George in the wide channels and Dan through his experience and leadership".

That being said, there's nothing like an Anglo-Welsh clash in Cardiff to get these two sides firing on all cylinders, the only question being who capitalises most on their upgrade in Cardiff this Saturday. "I don't know. It feels a bit cold for daffodils!" Rugby means such a lot.

It proved a spectacular finale to a stunning RBS 6 Nations encounter in Cardiff, yet Wales could only reflect on one that got away, their title hopes dealt a severe blow. "You go to the ground and the traffic controller [on your bus] drives slower than actual traffic to make sure you are late".

Whichever combination Wales field, though, they face a huge task against an England team now ranked second in the world and chasing a fourth successive Six Nations victory over their arch-rivals.

Both Wales and England will have eyes on winning this year's RBS 6 Nations, but beating the opposition in this match alone will be nearly as satisfying.
