Steady as she goes

Wales have beaten England in the opening World Cup warm-up match of the summer.

Tries from Gareth Davies and George North, along with 10 points from the boot of centurion Leigh Halfpenny, saw Wales come back from 6-0 down to win 20-9.

It was an impressive display by Warren Gatland's men, led superbly by captain Jac Morgan, with Aaron Wainwright also impressing in the back row.

England were poor in fairness as a series of handling errors undermined their efforts.

While this was very much the appetiser to the World Cup next month, it bodes well for Wales as their summer training camps appear to be paying dividends.
