England left it late to beat Wales in Cardiff as their odds to win the Six Nations were shortened further to even money.
A spell-binding match at The Prinicpality Stadium saw Wales on top for much of the match and they looked like they were set to end England’s 15-match unbeaten run.
However, with just minutes left Owen Farrell fed Elliot Daly to score in the corner and the Saracens man put over the conversion to give England a 21-16 win.
England are now two wins from two and two points clear of Ireland in second, who picked up the first bonus point win in Six Nations history with a comprehensive 63-10 win over Italy in Rome.
Connor O’Shea’s Italian side were no match for the Irish, who bounced back from the opening weekend defeat to Scotland in fine style.
CJ Stander and Craig Gilroy both claimed hat-tricks for Joe Schmidt’s side in the Stadio Olimpico.
England are now even-money for the Grand Slam, with WillIamHill going with 10/11 for no Grand Slam winner this year.
“The Six Nations now appears to be in England’s hands,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
