Wales lose their grip on the crown
FAVOURITES England wrapped-up the Four Nations title by going undefeated and without conceding a goal in their three matches.
But despite a comfortable 3-0 scoreline, they were a little fortunate against Wales for whom nothing went to plan.
The Dragons started well and Gareth Seddon's goal on 12 minutes was against the run of play - the Hyde United marksman struck a 25-yarder that deflected over keeper Tony Roberts.
Within a minute the Lions were forced into a change of keeper, Scott Tynan taking the gloves after Lance Cronin was injured in a collision with Chris Todd at a corner.
Wales looked to have equalised when Adam Quinn headed a Chris Moore free-kick into his own net, but the effort was ruled out for offside. Craig Hughes then hit the crossbar with a free-kick and Todd headed against the woodwork from a corner to add to the Welsh frustration.
Tony Pennock's men also had strong claims for a penalty waved aside after Kevin Nicholson appeared to handle a Lee John cross in the box.
Wales were still in with a chance until the 70th-minute, when Glenn Southam's effort was cleared off the line only for substitute Mitchell Cole to stroke home the rebound.
And there was no way back when Seddon's shot was turned into his own net by Adie Harris.
