Wales' Cory Hill to miss the rest of the Six Nations

Wales' Cory Hill to miss the rest of the Six Nations”

Late tries for Cory Hill, after a monumental 30-phase goal-line assault, and Josh Adams at the death secured a national record 12th successive victory. In today's match against Wales she will be practically middle-aged: four of the starting 15 are younger than 21 and five have 10 caps or fewer.

It resulted from a lapse in concentration from the Welsh during their own lineout, with a knock-on gifting Eddie Jones' men possession deep inside the Wales 22. He is in a position of power after winning that game so fair play to them.

After half-time, it was Warren Gatland's side who dominated proceedings with Anscombe twice being successful from the tee, including an impressive angled kick from 33 metres out.

Cory Hill scores a try against Tonga in 2018. Man was unbelievable in defence 1st half.

Gatland said before the start of the Six Nations he felt if Wales won in Paris on the opening night they would be well placed to win the title for the first time since 2013.

"The great thing about the Six Nations is that anyone can beat anyone on their day", Gatland said. They managed to build alot of pressure.

'Leigh playing and - from my point of view - getting some kicking under his belt is a huge positive for us, ' he added.

Somehow it carried as much oomph as the staggering impact made by the outstanding Wales flanker Josh Navidi in a pack who used the pick-and-go in attack, and nearly maniacal tackling in defence, to keep England's Billy Vunipola at bay, and find gaps in
the wide channels when it counted.

"It was a real nip and tuck sort of game". 'A game of small margins.

'It was a tough game, I don't know whetehr we lost our heads.

"Beating England was an upset, not for us because we expected to win, but it would have been for a lot of people".

Oh well, they have played there now, and the takeaway before a possible rematch with Wales in the World Cup knockout stages this October was a second half in which England conceded crucial penalties and sustained injuries to Jonny May (concussion) and Courtney Lawes (what looked a serious ankle problem) to compound the absence of Maro Itoje, Mako Vunipola and Dylan Hartley.

Wales Liam Williams' was named man of the match after the game, and he credited the hard work put in on the training pitch during the week.

And the Wales coach was quick to praise the effort his players have put in during the two weeks leading up to this test match.
