WALES meet England in the second leg of a double-header warm-up as the two sides prepare for the upcoming Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Earlier in the year, the Dragons claimed the Six Nations title after a six-year wait as Warran Gatland became the first ever coach to win three Grand Slams.

Their route to success included a memorable 21-13 victory over England in Cardiff, something the Lions will doubtless be keen to amend.

And they went a long way towards doing so in the first leg of this World Cup warm-up, winning 33-19 at Twickenham last Sunday to put an end to the Dragons’ 14-match winning run.
