England have kept themselves in with a shout of winning the Six Nations today after dominating Wales at Twickenham in a 29-18 win.
If England can now put some serious points on Italy next week - while the result goes their way between Ireland and France - then England can lift the Six Nations trophy.
Tries from Danny Care and Luther Burrell proved the difference - with the other 21 points coming from the boot of fly half Owen Farrell.
And if it wasn’t for the as ever imperious Leigh Halfpenny this result would have been vastly different.
The Welsh team, which contained 12 British and Irish Lions in their starting 15, failed against a fluid England side - except when it came to the boot of their talismanic full-back.
And that was not lost on a very patriotic and vocal Austin Healey on Twitter.
Healy, a scrum-half who played over 50 times for England in his Rugby Union career, clearly has some ‘interesting’ memories of facing Wales in the past - as he ripped into England’s opponents throughout the 80 minutes via Twitter.
Earlier in the week he had admitted that the Welsh ‘do hate the English’ to the press - and last year he bet every Wales fan £1 each that England would win the Six Nations in Cardiff - which of course, they didn’t.
And it seems his feelings have not thawed toward his neighbours.
Here are the Tweets in question…
