England travel to Wales today hoping to keep their Six Nations campaign alive.

Wales beat Ireland in a close encounter on the opening weekend before seeing off Scotland by a single point, and a win in Cardiff today would not only seal the Triple Crown but put them in a strong position to win their first championship since 2017.

Reigning champions England recovered from their opening day defeat by Scotland, beating Italy to get themselves on the board.

England must win in Cardiff to have any hope of winning the title themselves.
