A LATE JOSH Adams try proved to be the insurance score for Wales as they leapfrogged England in the Six Nations to keep their Grand Slam ambitions alive.

Warren Gatland’s side took the lead in the final 12 minutes after Cory Hill stretched over the try-line, but Adams’ incredible score at the death put their victory beyond doubt.

With 77 minutes on the clock, the ball was fed out from the scrum to Wales replacement Dan Biggar, who pinged the ball across the field where Adams was ready to pounce.

He rose highest in an aerial contest with Elliot Daly to get his fingertips on the ball first, and barrel his way over the line.

It was a beautiful piece of skill to seal the win.
