The last time England played Wales at Twickenham

The last time England played Wales at Twickenham

It's not long until kickoff as England host Wales for both sides first match of this years Six Nations. To set the mood, here's a quick clip that recaps what happened last time the two sides met at Twickenham, in 2008.

Big Lesley Vainikolo started for England and featured prominently in a try that was scored by Toby Flood, who has been brought in for todays match for another former Kiwi, Riki Flutey.

It was Wales' year though in 2008, as their quest for the Grand Slam was helped by this classic win away from home, helped by tries from Lee Byrne and Mike Phillips.

This short clip should bring back some good memories for Welsh fans, as we look forward to what should be a titanic battle again today. You can re-watch some of the tries from that match in our Pick of the Week from Round 1 of the 2008 Six Nations by following the link.
