Wounded Wales turn the tables

Wales pulled off a remarkable upset at Twickenham as they overcame a seven-point second-half deficit to take control of Pool A, despite another flood of injuries.

Match Commentary

82'
81'ESPN's Martyn Thomas (@MCThomasSport) had this to say:

"Rarely has Twickenham seemed so tense as during the final 10 minutes of what was a frenetic Rugby World Cup match. Stuart Lancaster will wonder how exactly his side lost it, but in truth they only have themselves to blame. Lancaster's selections were vindicated yet his side were unable to make their first-half pressure count while careless penalties kept Wales in it for large spells. But credit Warren Gatland's men as red bodies lay strewn around the famous turf they raised themselves for a huge 10 minutes in which they left England shell-shocked. Owen Farrell was superb for England, as was Sam Burgess, but Dan Biggar came of age. Whether Wales have enough backs left to beat Australia and Fiji only time will tell but they've given themselves a chance."
