The Wales team warms up ahead of the match against England

This will be a tough assignment for Ioan Cunningham’s side who are up against a powerful England outfit who are chasing a Six Nations Grand Slam.

We are underway here at the BT Sports Cardiff Arms Park as Sam Costelow kicks-off. 

1 min – Wales 3 England 0 – Sam Costelow puts Wales ahead from the kicking tee after a mere minute of the game.

5 mins – Wales 3 England 7 – The visitors hit back with Jack Clement touching down from short range after a powerful driving lineout. Fin Smith converts from the touchline.

Wales skipper Alex Mann has been excellent so far. A real menace at the breakdown.

Wales have only had 14% of the possession so far. That will have to change if they are to get back into this game.

Better from Wales who are able to build some pressure in the England half.

The hosts need to find a way of competing with England at scrum time because at the moment the visitors are having a field day at the set-piece.

It seems like Christ Tshiunza is everywhere! Huge work rate from the big blindside.

A change for Wales with Efan Daniel coming on to replace Ollie Burrows.

24 mins – Wales 3 England 12 – Pressure finally tells as Sam Riley touches down from another driving lineout.

30 mins – Wales 3 England 19 – It’s a hammer blow for Wales as England scrum-half Jack van Poortvliet takes a penalty quickly to score. Smith adds the extras.

Just when it looked as if England were about to claim their fourth try a magnificent steal from Christ Tshuinza at the lineout keeps Wales in the game.

Yellow cards – Both Efan Daniel (Wales), and Harvey Kindell-Beaton are both sent to the sin bin after some handbags.

Half-time – Wales 3 England 19

We are back underway here in Cardiff.

50 mins – Wales 3 England 24 – England secure their bonus point try with Arthur Relton touching down at the corner.

54 mins – Wales 3 England 31 – It’s another try for Relton.

57 mins – Yellow card – Christ Tshuinza is sent to the sin bin for a high tackle.

Wales are trying really hard but it’s hard to cope with England’s physicality.
