Warren Gatland has warned Wales against resting on their laurels after a second-half recovery saw them to a thrilling Six Nations victory over England in Cardiff.

A fraction over a rating point now separates the teams in the rankings with England dropping down to fourth. Man was awesome in defence 1st half.

Jones delivered a "no comment" when pushed for his response, having fallen to his Kiwi rival for the first time in four meetings, but George refused to recognise the accusation, saying: 'I think that's unfair.

"We are in a great position, but we are fully aware that one slip-up would probably mean we don't win the Championship", Biggar said. We didn't manage to get out of it as quickly as we wanted to.

"He's a good young player and he's doing his best, and like everyone we all make mistakes, but he'll be all right". We made a few mistakes and had a few calls go against us.

Meanwhile, England head coach Eddie Jones said his focus would be on improving his side's attack as they prepare to face Italy next week.

The bigger picture for Jones, with an eye on the World Cup, is to ensure England are more tactically nimble as their opponents in Japan will be studying the tapes of Saturday's game a lot more closely than those of the previous two.

Oh well, they have played there now, and the takeaway before a possible rematch with Wales in the World Cup knockout stages this October was a second half in which England conceded crucial penalties and sustained injuries to Jonny May (concussion) and Courtney Lawes (what looked a serious ankle problem) to compound the absence of Maro Itoje, Mako Vunipola and Dylan Hartley. "They are a tough side but they've got a couple of tough games and we'll be chasing them". England said they were coming down to spoil our party and perhaps we have spoiled theirs.

"The people we had and the people who came on today stood up". He scored a try as well and is a fantastic player for us and a good guy to have round the squad, so he is certainly going to be a loss.

And the Wales coach was quick to praise the effort his players have put in during the two weeks leading up to this test match. "Hopefully we will always show that".
