Wales 16-21 England, Millennium Stadium
Scorecard

Elliot Daly scored the decisive try in the final five minutes as England edged out Wales with a thrilling 16-21 win in Cardiff in the Six Nations encounter on Saturday to stretch their winning streak to 16 games.

After Wales fullback Leigh Halfpenny and centre Owen Farrell exchanged penalties in the first 10 minutes, scrum-half Ben Youngs scored the opening try for England in the 17th minute. England looked scratchy with Farrell missing a conversion and Daly not making a penalty from long range count.

Another penalty from Halfpenny, five minutes later reduced the gap to just two points but the decisive blow came when wing Liam Williams made an offload from Rhys Webb count, crossing over in the 37th minute and Halfpenny's conversion allowed Wales to take a 13-8 lead at half-time.

The concern was evident on Eddie Jones' as he replaced skipper Dylan Hartley with Jamie George in the 46th minute.

A couple of Farrell's penalty sandwiched between a Halfpenny three-pointer brought down the gap to just two points in the final 10 minutes. Just when the game was heading for another tight finish, Farrell aimed a kick at Daly, who went past Alex Cuthbert to score the final try. A conversion from Farrell ensured a five-point win for England and stretched their winning streak to 16 games.
