Six Nations: Wales v England match facts
The sides meet in Cardiff with the title on the line
Friday 15 March 2013
England can complete the Six Nations Grand Slam on Saturday with victory over Wales.
However the hosts in Cardiff will be no pushover, with a victory for themselves potentially seeing them retain their title.
Here, we take a look at the key match facts...
* The countries have met on 123 occasions - England lead the series 56-55, with 12 draws.
* Wales' record win in the series was a 25-0 victory in 1905, while England boast a best of 62-5 in a 2007 World Cup warm-up game (pictured).
* The last drawn Test between Wales and England produced a 13-13 scoreline in 1983.
* Victory for England on Saturday would give them a first Six Nations Grand Slam since 2003, and their 13th championship clean sweep overall.
* Wales have lost their last five games at the Millennium Stadium, suffering defeats against Argentina, Samoa, New Zealand, Australia and Ireland.
* Wales have not conceded a try for the last 275 minutes of Six Nations action. The last player to touch down against them was Ireland centre Brian O'Driscoll on February 2.
* England have scored at least one try in 11 of their 13 previous Six Nations meetings with Wales.
* Reigning champions Wales have not successfully defended a Five or Six Nations title since 1979.
* Wales need to beat England by seven points on Saturday - and stay ahead of them in tournament try-count - to win the title. Victory by eight points or more means try-count is irrelevant.
* Wales and England have each lost only one of their last nine Six Nations games.
