Williams Late Try is Winner for Wales: Wales lifted the Triple Crown at Twickenham after a thrilling victory over England. Replacement Scott Williams was the hero as his sensational second-half try completed a dramatic Welsh comeback. With the scores tied at 12-12, the replacement centre ripped the ball off Courtney Lawes and regathered his own kick ahead to score the decisive try. In a thrilling finale, England wing David Strettle came within inches of scoring with the final play of the game, as the television official ruled he had not grounded the ball in the corner.

It would have been interesting to see how Flood handled the pressure of trying to make a difficult kick from the corner to tie the game with 00:00 left to play.

What a match!!! And what a finish!!! I don't blame the television official for the no-try ruling--though I am sure many England fans do--as none of the video angles I saw were conclusive. But I agree with Mr. Bismark: it would have been interesting to see if Flood could have handled the pressure on that tough angle for the tying conversion points.
