Elliot Daly late try secures England win after titanic battle with Wales

There is also a law about 'materiality' - if a breach of a law doesn't affect the outcome of the game, it is ignored. It's why we allow wonky lineouts when the defending team don't even compete in the air. Due to the defender choosing the wrong man the 'obstruction' was immaterial.

Great try. I swore like made at the time, of course.

The defender had a choice about which man to hit, and chose the wrong one. They were running at diagonals. I'm more than happy to see that try stand.

Ross Moriarty's thumping late hit on Owen Farrell in Cardiff

Howley cocked up. He had written down that he wanted to bring Faletau on a X time and just went ahead and did it, regardless of how well players on the pitch were doing.

The point isn't that he can't tackle, it's that he doesn't work his arse off to get into positions to change the game while defending.

Don't see a huge problem with it. Probably a bit late and he put himself in a stupid position where he could have got himself a yellow, but quite like to see a bit of aggro in a game.

There was an excellent opportunity to see why Jones values Nowell and not Roko during the last Exeter v Bath match. Roko was immense in attack, absolutely top class, but in defence he was jogging to get back into the line. Nowell was busting his lungs throughout the match and made a couple of crucial tackles.

Jones wants wingers who are going to do the work in attack and defence, and Roko has been told that, so I imagine Jones will have been more than a little frustrated to see Roko doing it time after time. I don't think we'll ever see him play regularly for England unless that mindset changes, and all the time he wastes between then and now just gives a young gun a chance to play the Eddie Jones way and put his hand up for contention.

I think Roko will go the same way as Cipriani - a great player who looks awesome on highlight reels - and will have a similar [lack of] history for England.
