England come from behind to beat Wales in Six Nations thriller

Jack Clifford and Jack Nowell brought into England XV for Six Nations showdown with Wales

However, that request was rejected and Six Nations regulations require both teams to agree on closing the roof, with Wales to be informed of the decision at least 48 hours before the match.

Following England's 21-16 win over Wales, on Saturday, Jones told reporters that two of his main ball-carrying weapons were close to a return.

"It wasn't a pleasant one to be in after the game, but you have to bottle that feeling as a player and a coach and we'll try to learn from the last 10 minutes, where we went wrong".

"Everything we do is geared towards bridging that gap between us and New Zealand".

Scotland head coach Vern Cotter: We're not happy to lose the game.

Jack Clifford has been recalled to an inexperienced England back row in place of Tom Wood for Saturday's Six Nations global against Wales in Cardiff.

Unbeaten England now sit top of the Six Nations table, while Wales move down to third.

We've had a lot of postseason heartbreaks as Atlanta sports fans, but this is now the gold standard. "And I got hit pretty hard". You have to take advantage of your opportunities, and the Falcons absolutely missed a golden one on Sunday.

"That's not by coincidence". In the end, Wales faltered in deep defence in the last few minutes and lost the victory that they had played for so wonderfully.

"Wales were the benchmark team in Europe for winning games in the last 20 minutes". We don't do any extra fitness. We improved from the Italy game, and we will continue to work to do that again. I get stopped in the street now and again, but the highlight was the whole Grand Slam that year. Centre Jonathan Davies failed to find touch with a poor clearance kick from deep in his own try area, with regular kicker Dan Biggar recovering from a ruck, and that allowed George Ford the chance to trigger an England counter-attack.

The Northampton hooker had the ball ripped from him by Biggar as England were threatening midway through the first-half and was replaced by Jamie George in the 49th minute.

Wales Interim Head Coach Rob Howley says he is proud and delighted of the performance showed by the team up to about 75 minutes of the game. I want to do something a bit different v Italy.

The skipper continued: "We've got two weeks to regroup".

In order to beat the All Blacks streak of 18 successive test victories, England will need to overcome Italy and Scotland at Twickenham before a mouth watering visit to Dublin for what is looking like a title decider with Ireland on St. Patrick's weekend.

Asked if experimenting in any way indicated an expression of confidence they would win regardless, Jones insisted: "No, but I want to keep developing the team".
