England hold on for narrow win over Wales


By Martyn Herman

LONDON, Feb 10 – Two first-half tries by winger Jonny May were enough for holders England to beat a gutsy Wales side 12-6 in an intense Six Nations match at Twickenham on Saturday.

On a freezing wet day in west London, May took advantage of two moments of magic to race over as England claimed a 15th successive home victory in the competition to keep them top of the standings.

England led 12-3 at the interval and although Wales threw everything at them in the second half, Eddie Jones’s side produced a resolute rearguard action and clung on to take the points.
