Dan Biggar kicked Wales to a stunning 28-25 comeback victory over World Cup hosts England on Saturday as South Africa got their campaign back on course with an emphatic 46-6 triumph over Samoa.

The Welsh hero and South Africa wing JP Pietersen — scorer of three tries — were the individual stars on the most electrifying day so far of a World Cup that is keeping the fans on the edge of their seats with upset results and thrilling rugby.

Italy beat Canada 23-18 in the third game which produced the best try of the tournament so far in the shape of Canada wing DTH van der Merwe’s effort started by him deep inside his own half.

Biggar, who normally sees the kicking duties handled by the injured Leigh Halfpenny, emerged from the shadows to kick 23 points from seven penalties and a conversion — a record points haul for a Welshman against England.

A brilliant Gareth Davies try capped a determined come-from-behind performance by the Welsh as a whole leaving Biggar embarrassed at being named man of the match.
