|Guinness Six Nations: England v Wales
|England: (5) 16
|Tries: Earl, Dingwall Pen: Ford 2
|Wales: (14) 14
|Tries: Penalty, Mann Con: Lloyd
England overturned another half-time deficit in the Six Nations to edge past a youthful and spirited Wales side at Twickenham.
As in Rome a week ago, England trailed at the break as Wales claimed a penalty try and an Alex Mann score to threaten a first win at Twickenham since 2015.
Ford made amends for his failure to convert Ben Earl’s first-half try.
The England fly-half was denied the chance to equalise when he was adjudged to have begun his conversion attempt despite not striding towards the ball as Wales rushed up to foil him.
Victory moves England to the top of the Six Nations table after they maintained their winning start to the tournament, while Wales claimed a losing bonus point and remain fifth despite two opening defeats.
