Six Nations: Wales vs England Classic Clashes

Six Nations: Wales vs England Classic Clashes

England and Wales began their 2019 Six Nations campaigns with two resounding wins and this weekend they go head-to-head at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.


 

 

 

 

 

The Welsh played their first two fixtures of the competition away from home, but they managed to beat the French 24-19 in Paris and then brushed Italy aside 26-15.

 

 

 

 

England, on the other hand, has played one game at home and one away, they shocked the world by beating Ireland 32-20 in Dublin and then they absolutely hammered France 44-8 at Twickenham.

 

 

 

 

 

Both sides are on course of possibly winning the Six Nations this year, but we could also see one of them win the Grand Slam.

 

 

 

Here are a few Classic Clashes between the two nations:

 

 

2013: Wales 30-3 England

It was a game that the Welsh needed to win by seven points if they were to deny the English title and boy did they get the job done on the day. The Welsh destroyed the English by 27 points which was a record winning margin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2017: Wales 16-21 England

The match, which is mostly remembered for the Elliot Daly phenomenal try, up was an absolute cracker and with Wales having most of the upper hand in the closing stages of the match it was not enough to see them win the game.

2018: Wales 6-12 England

This low scoring encounter will probably be remembered for Jonny May first Six Nations tries as a powerful opening quarter set England on their way to a 12-6 win over Wales.
