Anthony Watson, wing for two-time Heineken Champions Cup winners Leicester Tigers, scored the first of England’s three tries as they overcame Wales 20-10 in the Six Nations Championship in Cardiff on Saturday.

Watson, who crossed for Leicester in their Pool B meeting with Ospreys in November, notched the only try of the first half on 18 minutes as England claimed an 8-3 interval lead, Saracens fly-half Owen Farrell having opened the scoring with a ninth-minute penalty.

However, Wales nudged 10-8 ahead just a minute into the second period, after Gloucester Rugby wing Louis Rees-Zammit, who has four tries in seven Heineken Champions Cup appearances for the English club, raced under the posts for an interception try.

England immediately regained command, though, Farrell converting a try under the posts from Bristol Bears prop Kyle Sinckler, before Bath Rugby centre Ollie Lawrence sealed victory with a 75th minute try.
