England 19 Wales 26: England feel the power of Edwards' intervention
By Chris Hewett
"When she heard we were losing, my mum went to the cemetery and prayed," said Shaun Edwards, a slightly bemused Lancastrian dressed so stiffly in formal Welsh attire that he might have been wearing a suit of armour, as he reflected on a day of extreme emotion that would have left a weaker individual searching hopelessly for his psychological bearings. "By the time she got back, we were winning." Serious injuries, rank bad luck, a dose of blind panic...and divine intervention too. Put this way, it is little wonder England finished second.
