Rightio.

The louche fella on the right of this photo - Tom Fordyce - has swilled his single malt and dictated his match report down the line to BBC Sport towers.

It's up and live over here.

See you tomorrow for a bit of France v Scotland yeah? Yeah.

'We came up short'

Wales' interim head coach Rob Howley speaking on BBC One:

"I'm proud and delighted with the performance...up to about 75 minutes. 

"Unfortunately, England know how to win. They've got a lot of confidence, and in the last five minutes we lacked a bit of composure. 

"I felt England were getting on top in the last 10 to 15 minutes and they took their chance. You have to applaud them for that.

"We closed games out in the Autumn, so it's unfortunate that we didn't do that today. We kept on hurting ourselves. International rugby is about taking your chances and keeping discipline. 

"Dan Biggar delivers that level of performance whether it's in training or in a Test match. He's one of the key players in the unit and he's matured to become a class player.

"It's not for me to say how people should judge the performance. We came up short and that's hugely disappointing.

Sophie Gallop: Yes gentleman in the pub. I do get very 'riled up' about rugby. Even for a 'small lass'!

Cameron Cowie: What a Test match. Hit for hit, kick for kick, on the edge of your seat rugby.

England's match winner Elliot Daly: "I just pinned my ears back. It was a lovely ball by Owen Farrell,  I was just going for that corner, I had no other thought but to run as fast as possible to that corner.

"It was a massive moment, we really needed that try. As soon as we got it, all the boys knew we were half way there, had done the hard bit and just had to kill the game off.

"We believe in ourselves, we know what we need to do."

He added: "This was my first time playing here in Cardiff, the atmosphere was one I will never forget."

Andy Sarratt: Fantastic resilience from the red rose, what a match, what a result!

Michael Blyth: Ross Moriarty tackles like a train. By that I mean with great force and normally late.

Howley - 'It's always going to be tough'

Rob Howley, Wales head coach, speaking on BBC Radio 5 live: A Test match is about nailing those moments when you come under pressure and we had four minutes where we lost it. 

I am disappointed with the last ten minutes, we lost our composure, but we have to take the positives. When you've got a side that is unbeaten like they are, it's always going to be tough. 

Daly - 'We can win even when we're behind'

Elliot Daly, England's match winner, speaking on BBC Radio 5 live: There wasn't much thought going through my head I just ran to the line. We've got the belief that if we do our roles, we can win, even when we are behind. Obviously it's a massive win, but we've now got two weeks to prepare for Italy.

Sam Hughes: Dylan Hartley a great captain. But Jamie George a better hooker. What's more important?

'I don't think Wales have played that well for six years'

Rob Jones

There's a huge disappointment. But the positives are, I don't think Wales have played that well for four, five or even six years. They created more, they played with more freedom. They have to take so much belief from that performance.  

Alun Wyn Jones - 'We will take huge belief from this'

England head coach Eddie Jones speaking on BBC One: 

"I always thought we could win the game, although we didn't have much ball apart from the first 20 minutes. It was pure grit and the players believe we can be the best team in the world. 

"Elliot Daly is a lovely player, we're still not sure of his best position, but he's handy on the wing and his finish today was first class. 

"It was a great atmosphere, that was a proper Test match and a proper Test match crowd.

"Wales played well today, they defended really well, but we had five starting players out and it just shows how the squad is developing for us. 

"We'll go back into training next week and then we want to put Italy to the cleaners."

'Not the finished article'

England fly-half Owen Farrell speaking on BBC One: 

"In glimpses we showed what we can do. It's a brilliant result and we can look at where to improve now.

"When you're out there you just think about your job. It felt as if it [the winning try] was coming, but you have to be able to execute when the chance comes, and we did.

"The last couple of games we've found a way. It's not the finished article but we keep going and keep getting better."

Wales 16-21 England

A real Test match. Real pressure. Very impressive finish by England - but one of the best Eng V Wal games for a while

Jones - 'We were one or two tackles away from our best'

Wales 16-21 England

England head coach Eddie Jones speaking on BBC Radio 5 live: "I thought our first 20 minutes were really good, but we were one or two tackles away from our best. 

"We were always in the game. We always thought if we got possession we could get back into the game."

Jeremy Guscott

Former England centre on BBC One

England are in a winning frame of mind. They found enough nous and played smart enough to get in position and made the try happen at the end.

England head coach Eddie Jones speaking on BBC Radio 5 live: I think we have used all of our get out of jail cards. I never think we are going to lose, but we don't want all our games to be that tight.

Defending champions and top of the table.

Eddie Jones's Midas touch continues as he racks up his 15th straight win as England coach.

Scotland could over-take England with a convincing enough win away to France tomorrow however.

'Hell of a match'

Wales 16-21 England

England captain Dylan Hartley speaking on BBC One: "We showed good examples of what we can do today, though I would have preferred to wrap up a bit earlier. 

The finishers came on for us and showed great composure. There are parts of the game where we need to improve, we need to learn, but we'll take that one.

Wales are a hell of a side and from minute one they showed how physical they are. It was a hell of a Test match.

'That game was absolutely superb'

Matt Dawson

England World Cup winner on BBC Radio 5 live

That game was absolutely superb. On that evidence, there is no gap now between the Southern Hemisphere teams.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Let's wait until next autumn at least before making that call.

The crucial kick

Wales 16-21 England

Where it all went wrong for Wales.

Jonathan Davies gets the ball behind his try line and has to put it into touch. It can only reach George Ford and Elliot Daly does the rest.

The chase was not up to much either from the red shirts. Understandable perhaps after 75 minutes, but that puts an even higher premium on Jonathan Davies finding touch.

'I've never watched an England side win under that much pressure'

Matt Dawson

I've never watched an England side with only 40-60% territory, under that much pressure, win a game. They didn't even nick it, they worked it.

England's man of the match Joe Launchbury: "It was pretty quick and very physical. It's always good to come to this stadium and to get the result is very pleasing.

Joe Launchbury had a stormer in the England engine room.

The lock made a game high 20 tackles, almost twice as many as his nearest England teammate.

18 carries for 16m made not sound much, but he kept the ball moving forward and England ticking over.

What a game! Wales have been incredible. But just as I said one mistake looks like it's won the game. The kick from Wales should have gone off the park.

The stadium awash in Swing Low. Fabulous pass from Farrell, critical conversion.
