England man says team will learn from errors
England scrum-half Ben Youngs is confident his side will learn from their 13-6 loss to Wales at the Principality Stadium on Saturday.
In a narrow game between the two sides, it was Wales who scored the only try of the game after George North capitalised on an England mistake.
With Anthony Watson having just been sin-binned and Youngs waiting to come on after Willi Heinz went off for a Head Injury Assessment, England were temporarily down to 13 men.
Wales took advantage as Dan Biggar launched a quick penalty to the wing and North grounded.
And, Youngs admitted that his experienced colleagues should have been more aware that Wales were going to restart play quickly, but says they will learn from it.
"Being down to 13 men is never ideal. Anthony came off and then the boys are in a huddle. Then Willi has come off and I'm waiting to be given the green light to go on," Youngs said.
"Before I know it, Wales are off. It's happened here and I dare say something like that will not happen again. It's one of those things.
"There's nothing as players that you can do about that except take the one lesson which is don't switch off when there's a penalty."
England now face Ireland and Italy in two more World Cup warm-up matches at Twickenham and St James' Park respectively.
