How Twitter reacted to Wales’ comeback RWC win over England

Wales sucked the life out of a packed Twickenham Stadium on Saturday night, staging a second-half fightback that relegated England to a 28-25 loss and left them in danger of exiting their own World Cup early.

Dan Biggar was the star of the show for the visitors, kicking Warren Gatland’s side to glory with a flawless display.

Here’s how Twitter reacted on a night with plenty of talking points:
