Late Daly try gives England dramatic victory over Wales

Wales v England preview Wales vs England: Eddie Jones gambles for Cardiff showdown
Nathaniel Diaz | 12 February, 2017, 00:59

"It was a bang on the shoulder, but I'm fine, it's ok".

"George hasn't done too much this week, and Dan has done a couple of sessions", said interim head coach Howley, who has called up props Rob Evans and Tomas Francis as his only two changes from the 33-7 victory in Rome. We had a young team against a Wales team that played as well as I have seen. The interception summed up his day defensively.

Dylan Hartley will be disappointed with his display (Picture: Getty) Dylan Hartley, like Jones, has had better days and struggled to make an impact against Howley's side in Cardiff.

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

He said: "It was a 75 minute performance".

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

Of course, it was an incredible end to a Test match and people were quick to point out the exciting nature of the finish.

Howley says unfortunately England know how to win and they have got a lot of confidence.

"Last couple of games we have found a way, that's what is exciting about what is to come and hopefully we can get better and better". It's a tough one, but you take that, you bottle it and we will use that in two weeks when we go to Murrayfield. Worldwide games are won in the last 10 minutes, when decision-making comes under pressure.

"It felt as if it [the winning try] was coming, but you have to be able to execute when the chance comes, and we did".

"It's not number one or two when you're playing worldwide, it's a squad of 23".

"We don't need extra motivation this week; we play Test rugby because we want to be the best for England".

The only other change announced by Jones on Thursday to the England XV that started in the Grand Slam champions 19-16 tournament-opening win over France at Twickenham is on the right wing, with Jack Nowell replacing Jonny May after the latter was sin-binned against the French.

England should win that game easily based on Italy's poor display against Ireland on Saturday, and with a home match against Scotland before the Super Saturday finale in Dublin, they have been made odds-on to secure back to back grand slams.

"We have now become a team that is hard to beat and, even when a side beats us, I don't think they are going to beat us, and that is what we want to be like".

"At stages today it looked like we were going to fade out of the game, but we just kept on hanging in there and kept on sticking in there, people getting off their feet and making tackles like Courtney Lawes today", he said. He has ice all over him after that many tackles and carries.
