World Cup warm up at Twickenham

From England v Wales 2011

England v Wales is normally a great game – but would it be without the six nations at stake, and with both sides fielding many players not certain to be in the final line ups when they travel to New Zealand…

The final score correctly reflected a close, but scrappy game in which England always had the upper hand – but only just. There where a few moments of flair from England that showed promise – but indiscipline at crucial moments let Wales stay in the match. On this performance I don’t think any of the southern hemi-sphere teams will be in the least bit worried that the world cup will be going north of the equator any time soon.
