The lead-up to the Twickenham clash featured a war of words between coaches Eddie Jones and Warren Gatland, as Wales were looking to get back to back wins after a lacklustre opening round victory against Scotland last week.

The first half action was the tale of the match as England’s Jonny May went over twice, the first inside 5 minutes as May went over picking up a Owen Farrell kick and sliding over. Before more pressure from the hosts see an attack that started with Joe Launchbury heading for the try line before if finally reached May again to go over.

Just as it was looking like it was slipping away from Wales, the controversial incident, took place, which once again in sport, had technology as the talking point.

The TMO ruled, after discussion with the match referee that no try should be awarded after it looked as if Anscombe had beaten Anthony Watson to the ball first and get his hand on it. Afterwards most thought the try should’ve been awarded and the governing body – World Rugby – confirmed earlier this week that – that should’ve been the case after reviewing the match and speaking to Welsh rugby officials.

As much as Wales tried to turn the second half around, they could only seal 3 points towards the end, and put pressure on the England backs, but it was to no avail.
