The age-old rugby rivalry reignites at Twickenham this afternoon
England v Wales live stream: How to watch the Six Nations match
England take on Wales in the Six Nations as both sides look to bag their second win of this year’s championship. The teams lost their first-round matches, to Scotland and Ireland respectively, but they steered their tournament back on track in round two.
Dan Biggar’s late drop-goal secured Wales a 20-17 win over Scotland and Eddie Jones’s side ran riot over Italy with a 33-0 victory.
This fixture comes with plenty of history – see England v Wales: Five of the best Six Nations matches – and there was even drama in the build-up, when Manu Tuilagi was ruled out of today’s match just hours after being announced in the team.
On Thursday, Tuilagi was picked at inside-centre alongside Henry Slade in midfield, but a hamstring injury means he can’t take to the field at Twickenham and England waited until match day to confirm their team line-up after recalling Joe Marchant from Harlequins.
