England vs Wales LIVE: Six Nations TV Channel, live stream and latest updates



Good afternoon!

England play in front of a packed Twickenham in the Six Nations for the first time in just shy of two years today when they’ll host titleholders Wales in a must-win meeting for both teams.

Both Eddie Jones ‘ side and today’s guests have won once and lost once thus far in the competition, with England falling to Scotland in their opener while Wales were devastated 29-7 by Ireland.

England suffered a major setback after it was announced Manu Tuilagi won’t feature at Twickenham, the centre forced back out of Jones’ line-out due to a recurrence of the hamstring injury he’d just recovered from.

On the other side of the field, Wales will be without star winger Louis Rees-Zammit, with fit-again Josh Adams his replacement in the XV.

The visitors also received a boost in the shape of three-time British and Irish Lions tourist Taulupe Faletau, who is back from a seven-month spell on the sidelines and in a Wales XV for the first time since March 2021.

Although Wales have won three of the last six meetings between these teams, they haven’t come away from Twickenham with a win since the pool stage of the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

It’s been a full decade since they last beat England on their own turf in the Six Nations.
