Jonny May ran in two tries as England kept their Grand Slam aspirations alive by edging Wales 12-6 in a fiercely competitive Six Nations clash at Twickenham. May crossed twice in the first half to help sweep the champions 12-0 ahead in the 20th minute, but Warren Gatland's Wales side fought their way back into a captivating Test played in difficult conditions. Controversy clouded the result, however, after official Glenn Newman ruled out a try for Gareth Anscombe when Wales trailed 12-0 in the second quarter. Anscombe appeared to exert downward pressure with an outstretched hand at the end of an attack down the left wing, but Newman thought otherwise and the decision was in England's favor proving critical as a late penalty by Anscombe reduced their lead to six points. A try-saving tackle by Sam Underhill denied Wales in the second half. England were missing seven Test British and Irish Lions including Leigh Halfpenny, a casualty due to an unspecified injury.

In the match build-up, Eddie Jones asked if Wales' fly-half Rhys Patchell had the "bottle" for the occasion. Opposite him George Ford, assisted by Owen Farrell, excelled through his kicking. Dylan Hartley departed for a head injury assessment after only 42 seconds but his exit failed to knock England off their stride as they surged ahead through a try srt in motion by Farrell. Anthony Watson challenged Patchell for a hanging kick and a slippery ball squirted out to Farrell who, spotting space on the left, delivered a perfectly-weighted kick for May to outrun three onrushing defenders and touch down. Maro Itoje forced a turnover with a hard tackle. Alun Wyn Jones was booed by home fans when he spoke to referee Jerome Garces about penalties, having noted Eddie Jones' claim that the Wales captain intimidated official Pascal Gauzere in Cardiff last weekend. A Patchell penalty nudged the visitors off the mark after Anscombe's try had been disallowed and they entered a key phase as they attacked from a line-out, hammering away with success for a while as the arch-rivals battled until Jack Nowell came on from the bench to replace the injured Anthony Watson and inspiring England. In the third quarter, a series of fast turnovers unfolded and it took a try-saving tackle by Underhill on Scott Williams to keep Wales out as the home defense held on to the finish.

Round three of the 2018 Six Nations Championship begins on Friday night in Marseille, when France hosts Italy on 23rd February. On Saturday, Ireland will host Wales at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, before Scotland and England meet for the Calcutta Cup clash at BT Murrayfield. Ireland and England won both matches in the first two rounds. Scotland earned their first victory in the second round of 2018 NatWest 6 Nations fixtures. Close games between England and Wales at Twickenham and Scotland and France at BT Murrayfield took place to the delight of the fans in attendance. England came through a low-scoring tie against Wales keeping the pressure on Ireland at the top of the standings. Two first-half tries from Jonny May secured the points for England. The match featured a questionable decision not to award Wales a try when Gareth Anscombe appeared to touch the ball down ahead of Anthony Watson. Former England head coach Sir Clive Woodward talked about the performances of England players. "Sam Underhill's tackle to prevent Scott Williams scoring will be remembered for decades. It seems to have already taken on legendary status and rightly so," said Sir Clive. "England's two outstanding forwards were Joe Launchbury who was my man of the match by a distance, and Chris Robshaw, who had another outstanding game.

France dominated for the majority of their match with Scotland, but in the end they lost due to a lack of discipline. France No.8 Marco Tauleigne talked about their loss. "We lost the game of our own accord," said Tauleigne. "We gave them the ammunition they needed to win. We did not have enough discipline in the second half and let them come back into the game too easily. If we manage to erase those errors, we can get in front and hold onto the lead more easily because when we manage to play the game we want, as we did in the first half, it will improve." To date, Italy played the two top sides in this year's Six Nations Tournament in the first two rounds not able to score a point, while Ireland scored 3 tries in the opening 20 minutes. "The mentality of the team is right - they could have given up and did not and this is positive. The big regret is that we didn't play as we wanted to in the first half," said Ireland head coach Conor O'Shea. "The first 20 minutes were disastrous - we did not put pressure on them, allowing them to play great rugby. "We made a lot of mistakes at the beginning and this affected the whole game," said Italy captain Sergio Parisse.Wales could not break down England's defense and had to settle for two penalties as their only points. England's Owen Farrell executed a perfect kick for May to score the opening try. Fly-half Rhys Patchell struggled under the pressure and made some major mistakes.
