‘England got what they deserved’
7.35pm: Former England captain Martin Johnson wasn’t beating around the bush with his criticism.
“England got what they deserved, they lost the grip of it and Wales took hold with that try,” he said.
“They imposed themselves physically, and there was only going to be one winner.
“There was a period of 20 minutes in the second half where England did nothing.”
Farrell rues errors
7.20pm: England captain Owen Farrell was disappointed by the errors his side made in the second half.
He told BBC Sport: “We just didn’t really get a foothold in the last 30 minutes of the game. We just couldn’t seem to get that bit of momentum from the first half.
“We made a few errors, myself included in that and they did what they did well and we couldn’t get out of our half.
“There was a big chunk of the last part of that game where we will feel that we didn’t take a shot at them.”
Warren Gatland has his say
7.10pm: Warren Gatland wants his side to win the Grand Slam now they’ve beaten England.
“We worked on our pick and drive all week as we thought that was an area we could expose England,” Gatland said.
“I kind of thought it was a soft try from England in the first half and we reduced them to just three points in that second half.
“Now that we’ve done that we’ve got to go out and try and win this championship.”
Eddie Jones speaks
7.00pm: England coach Eddie Jones has admitted his side weren’t at their best in Cardiff.
“It was one of those nick and tuck games and with small margins,” Jones said.
“It was a tough game. I don’t know whether we lost our heads but they put us under a lot of pressure.
“I just think a few of our players were a bit off today and that happens sometimes. Full credit to Wales as they deserved the victory and played very well.”
FT: Great second half from Wales who get their 12th win in a row – it’s a national record!
78: TRY WALES – Josh Adams – And that will be the game! Great kick from left to right finds Adams and he finishes brilliantly! Dan Biggar can’t add the two points though.
74: Wales know they can slow things down. England looking void of ideas.
69: TRY WALES – Cory Hill – Wales pile the pressure back on and it tells. Quickly move it right with there to finish it off. Conversion is successful. Wales lead for the first time!
63: Now it’s Wales who are penalised and Farrell puts England’s lead back at four.
61: Into the final quarter of the match, who will maintain their Grand Slam hopes?
57: Replacements are being prepared as Wales make their recent dominance count after another penalty.
56: Wales getting up a head of steam now. They kick to the corner from another penalty.
52: England’s frustration lead to conceding a penalty. Anscombe knocks it over and the deficit is now just four.
48: Both sides getting a bit frustrated and there’s a bit of pushing and shoving. Referee has a word with the captains to calm the situation down.
44: Second half has started in a similar way to the first. England had the majority of possession without really getting anywhere.
41: Players are back out and we are underway in the second half.
Guscott praises England
5.35pm: It’s been tense, and at times scrappy, but Jeremy Guscott is enjoying the battle.
“I’ve loved it, loved the intensity,” he said.
“They are suckering each other in, and England are persisting with the kicking game. I think it’s gone how we thought.”
HT: England force their way up to the Wales tryline, but the home defence hold firm and the half-time whistle goes.
39: Wales ending the half the stronger but England holding firm for now.
33: Few neat passes from Wales before Henry Slade blocks a kick and starts running away with it. It leads to nothing, but this clash is beginning to open up now.
27: TRY ENGLAND – TOM CURRY. Curry breaks through when Wales are perhaps expecting a pass and stretches over the line. Farrell knocks over the conversion.
23: Kyle Sinckler is penalised and Gareth Anscombe levels the scores.
21: Now Wales get a penalty as England don’t roll away. Warren Gatland’s side head to the corner again.
17: England get a penalty inside the Wales 22 after a scrum is dropped and Owen Farrell comfortably knocks it over. The visitors lead!
13: Both teams trying to utilise their kicking game, but it’s not working. Brian Moore notes as much on BBC commentary.
8: England win the lineout and defend well after kicking away. Scrappy start in Cardiff with neither team able to assert their authority.
6: England now penalised as they stray offside and Wales head to the corner.
3: Wales penalised for a tackle with no arms, but Elliot Daly misses the kick!
1: Owen Farrell gets us underway, GAME ON.
4.40pm: Teams are out, anthems are about to be sung and it’s almost time for the action to begin.
Whoever wins this has a great chance of lifting the Six Nations trophy.
It will also be a major boost ahead of the World Cup later this year in Japan.
Strap in and stay with us for the next couple of hours.
Fifteen minutes to go
4.30pm: We are just 15 minutes from kick-off at the Principality Stadium and fans can’t wait.
One wrote: “I play football. I love playing football, but nothing compares to watching the rugger in big games like this. Think England will win but I don’t care either way. Looking forward to the battle.”
Another added: “Wales v. England is going to be magnificent oh my god.”
And a third wrote: “Nothing quite like the Rugger at the Principality!”
‘Old women giving us the finger’
4.20pm: Danny Care has opened up on the rowdiness of the Cardiff crowd, and it’s hilarious!
He said: “The hype is exactly what you’ve heard. It’s an unbelievable place to play. The stories of people swearing at you are true – it happens.
“I remember old women giving us the middle finger. Everyone gives you stick.
“There was one lad who ran at the bus, jumped and head-butted the side of the bus. That shows the passion, or the stupidity, of some people.”
Will the roof be open or closed?
4.10pm: Open is the simple answer.
With the weather fine, England have forced Wales to leave the roof open at the Principality.
Both countries have to agree for it to be closed, and England don’t want that to be the case.
Wales tend to favour an enclosed stadium to generate a more hostile atmosphere for visiting teams.
How to watch
4.00pm: While we would obviously love you to follow Express Sport’s coverage of today’s match, we know some of you want to watch the action.
Television coverage in the UK comes from BBC One, with live streaming available through the BBC iPlayer.
We are just 45 minutes from kick-off, with BBC coverage getting underway at 4.15pm, so get yourself comfy.
Jones plays underdog card
3.50pm: England coach Eddie Jones believes the pressure is all on the hosts in Cardiff.
“It’s all about Wales, we are playing potentially the greatest team ever,” he said.
“Their players are full of emotion and it’s the biggest game they are going to play in their lives.
“We have had a good week just focusing on ourselves and focusing on getting our preparation right.”
Gatland knows challenge awaits
3.40pm: Wales coach Warren Gatland knows how big this game is with the World Cup just a few months away.
“We’ve had a great two-week lead up to this game, we’ve looked really sharp and the squad are incredibly motivated to kick on,” Jones said.
“We know how important this game is for the rest of the championship.
“It’s a massive challenge playing against an England team that is playing really well and with a lot of confidence, and we’ve got to make it difficult for them.”
3.30pm: Wales have made 11 changes from the team that beat Italy while England swap two.
Wales: 15-L Williams; 14-North, 13-J Davies, 12-Parkes, 11-Adams; 10-Anscombe, 9-G Davies; 1-R Evans, 2-Owens, 3-Francis, 4-Hill, 5-AW Jones (capt), 6-Navidi, 7-Tipuric, 8-Moriarty.
