Wales have secured the Triple Crown and are well on their way to stake a claim on the Six Nations championship for 2021 after beating England on Saturday 40-24.
The score is not a true reflection of the match and Wales will be the first to tell you that but that they deserve the win no one can argue.
The match did not go with no controversy and some may used it as an excuse for England loss but at the end Wales ended stronger of the two teams and England gave just too many penalties away.
The game started with two penalties each before the first bit of controversy come with Wales first try of the match.
With the penalties mounting against England in the red zone the referee said to England captain, Farrell he needs to talk to his team. England gather behind the poles thinking Wales will kick at goal from the penalty but Biggar kicked cross field for Adams to go over.
Farrell was not happy as the referee awarded the try.
That gave Wales a 10-3 lead but that would soon be reduced to 10-6 after a Farrell penalty.
In the 29th minute the biggest controversy of the match happen when Liam Williams scored after it clearly looked like Rees-Zammit knocked the ball on.
The TMO cam in and agreed with the referee that the ball went from his hands to his leg backwards and awarded the try. Most people were dumbstruck but the try was awarded.
England – Tries: Anthony Watson, Ben Youngs. Penalties: Owen Farrell (4).
