6N: England edges Wales 21-16 in Cardiff

Farrell converted and Wales - who saw star winger George North pull out an hour before kick-off, Cuthbert his replacement - were left utterly dumbfounded.

"At stages in between I thought we were going to fade out of the game but we hung in there making tackles and Courtney Lawes is like a human ice pack".

It was Daly's try in the last five minutes that secured a 21-16 victory for England, who are now two from two in the RBS 6 Nations.

Meanwhile, head coach Rob Howley admitted a lack of composure in the final 10 minutes cost Wales a famous win.

Clifford's lone Test start came in a 27-13 win over Wales at Twickenham in May, a match in which the 23-year-old Harlequins back-row scored a try. "We are looking forward to kick-off on Saturday".

Jones insisted he has been psychologically "cuddling" his England players in anticipation of the renewal of a special rivalry.

"Once we go down the M4 and across the Severn River, we don't control anything". He played 70 minutes last week.

Eddie Jones may resort to cuddling to get his England players firing, but Jonathan Joseph says the hostility of the Welsh crowd in Cardiff is enough motivation for him.

"We had to execute under pressure, and we didn't but that's test match football and you have to make sure when you're in that position next time, you're better for it", Howley said. "I should be back in training on Tuesday", he said.

Milwaukee forward Jabari Parker suffers torn ACL
Bad news: MRI shows JaBari Parker has torn his ACL again, league sources say. "Now we've got to learn how to play without Jabari". Parker left Milwaukee's game Wednesday night, February 8th against the Miami Heat in the third quarter with a sprained left knee.

"In the last 10 minutes they believed they were going to win and it is pretty precious to have that feeling".

Even though they lost the game, it was undoubtedly Wales' best performance of the season, although a losing bonus point provided scant consolation.

And that set the scene for a thrilling finale following another Farrell penalty, with Daly applying the killer blow to Wales and Farrell adding the extras. "I though we asked questions, either side of the ruck, so we will continue to do that".

"When you're out there you just think about your job".

"Some of these players have bounced back before, and I have no doubt that we will have a reaction because there is a lot of character in that dressing room".

"Y'know it's a big game for us because we want to take them to the cleaners."

"He'll give us a little bit more pace in the back row, Nathan has been playing well for us and Tom Wood will also play his part later in the game off the bench".

Jones is right though, after seeing Ireland put up a score against Italy this weekend, then England will have to do the same.

Defeat was Wales' second during Howley's second stint as stand-in for British and Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland. "He will be fit for Murrayfield for selection".
