England overturned another half-time deficit in the Six Nations to edge past a youthful and spirited Wales side at Twickenham.

As in Rome a week ago, England trailed at the break as Wales claimed a penalty try and an Alex Mann score to threaten a first win at Twickenham since 2015.

Fraser Dingwall scored in the corner to drag England to within a point before George Ford's penalty sealed victory.

Ford made amends for his failure to convert Ben Earl's first-half try.
