Shaun Edwards delivers analysis of Wales' 'mistake' against England

Shaun Edwards has delivered a detailed analysis of the Wales "mistake" that potentially cost them victory over reigning RBS 6 Nations champions England.

Wales were undone in Cardiff 11 days ago by wing Elliot Daly's 75th-minute try as England extended their winning run under head coach Eddie Jones to 16 Tests.

Daly's counter-attack score meant that England overcame a two-point deficit entering the closing stages of a pulsating Principality Stadium clash.

But it could have been a different story had Wales not got the so-called exit strategy wrong close to their own line.

What happened was that we broke off structure.From any unstructured turnover, where the backs turn the ball over, we are supposed to go two rucks (in order) to get our backs back up on their feet to fill the pitch.

We didn't do that. We passed it back to the kicker after one ruck, which was a mistake. It should have been two rucks.

I don't think (centre) Jonathan (Davies) expected the ball because he expected a two-ruck exit play. That is probably one of the reasons why his kick wasn't as accurate as normal.

But everyone makes mistakes. If one of us makes a mistake, we all make a mistake together.
