Watch: Wales Execute Two Perfect Cross-Field Kicks In Stunning Try

Watch: Wales Execute Two Perfect Cross-Field Kicks In Stunning Try

Wales are taking on England in a World Cup warmup this afternoon, with both sides hoping to step up their preparations for the tournament in Japan.

The two nations afaced off last week, with the English coming out on top on a 33-19 scoreline. That was a result that stopped the Welsh from retaining the number one spot in the rugby world rankings.

They would no doubt have been keen to avenge that defeat today, and they produced a stunning bit of rugby in the opening half.

Anthony Watson had just been shown a yellow card, temporarily reducing England to 14 players. Dan Biggar showed some incredibly quick thinking to pick out Josh Adams on the wing with a cross-field kick.

As the play advanced, Biggar pulled out another kick, this time to set up George North for an easy try.

The English complained to the referee, as Watson was still on the field when the quick penalty was taken. Their complaints fell on deaf ears however, and the try was allowed to stand.

At least a pair of England supporters in the crowd took it in good spirits.
