Wales Defeats England 19-9 in Warm-Up Match for Rugby World Cup

Aug. 13 (Bloomberg) -- James Hook scored 13 points to lead Wales past England 19-9 in an international rugby Test match in Cardiff.

Hook scored the only try of the game at the Millennium Stadium, which he converted, and added two penalty goals. Rees Priestland also booted two penalties, while Toby Flood kicked three penalties for England.

It was second straight warm-up match for the Rugby World Cup, which begins next month in New Zealand, between the teams. England won 23-19 on Aug. 6 in London.

Hook’s converted try in the 58th minute gave Wales a 13-9 lead. He then added penalties in the 68th and final minute to clinch the victory.

Wales plays its final World Cup warm-up on Aug. 20 when it hosts Argentina, while England’s last tune-up will be Aug. 27 in Ireland.
