Wales 16 England 21: Daly grabs late victor in Cardiff

Jack Clifford has been named at openside flanker in England's side to face Wales on Saturday and forms part of an inexperienced back row with only 10 worldwide starts between them.

England's Grand Slam dream is still alive after they recorded a last-gasp victory over Wales at the Principality Stadium in what was an incredibly engrossing and physical Test match. Wales, who name their team later on Thursday, will select three British & Irish Lions in Sam Warburton, Justin Tipuric and Taulupe Faletau if the latter is passed fit.

England: M Brown (Harlequins); J Nowell (Exeter), J Joseph (Bath), O Farrell (Saracens), E Daly (Wasps); G Ford (Bath), B Youngs (Leicester); J Marler (Harlequins), D Hartley (Northampton, capt), D Cole (Leicester), J Launchbury (Wasps), C Lawes (Northampton), M Itoje (Saracens), J Clifford (Harlequins), N Hughes (Wasps).

"I think it speaks volumes of our back row when you see us releasing Thomas Young, who has been one of the in-form 7s in the Aviva Premiership", said Howley. They scraped through with a win at Twickenham but were ponderously uncertain.

England didn't take too long to find their feet, though, and they started to put together some forceful passages of play.

The Australian immediately made it clear after the match that his side can not afford to keep letting the opposition take the lead, as Wales did a week after France led at Twickenham going into the final stages.

AFTER WATCHING HIS side strike late against Wales to sustain his unbeaten time in charge, England head coach Eddie Jones wasn't ready to offer empty platitudes to his next opponent. The kick went straight to Farrell, who sent Daly galloping around Alex Cuthbert and into the left corner. We know we need to play the full 80 minutes, we've talked about this before, but we didn't.

They hoped to make England freeze, but Chris Robshaw got into a standoff with officials and refused to leave the tunnel until Wales came out at the same time. "Every game for us is important and our supporters, and Wales is our next game so it's the most important".

"England are deservedly tagged as the best team in the northern hemisphere". You don't like that feeling and you learn to control those emotions. He's also previously sought advice from the England cricket and women's hockey coaches, and just last month invited Danny Mills of England's 2002 football World Cup squad and FA performance chief Dave Reddin to a discussion about attaining success in Japan in 2019.

Asked if England could be bullied due to their lack of experience, forwards coach Steve Borthwick said: "No, I don't have any concerns about that".

"The boy's got gas and he's got that x-factor about him and that's what we like him", Jones said. We didn't go into much detail.

"We all make mistakes, we're all human".
