Wales Retains Six Nations With Record Win

Wales has successfully defended the Six Nations title, beating England by a record 30-3 at the Millennium Stadium.

The win over England has denied the long-time tournament leader a Grand Slam.

Winger Alex Cuthbert grabbed two second-half tries for the Welsh in the record win, after fullback Leigh Halfpenny had kicked them to a 12-3 lead by the 52nd minute.

It was Wales' fourth title in the past nine years and 26th overall in the tournament - equalling England's haul.

Wales won its last four matches after opening with a 30-22 loss to Ireland, its eighth straight defeat.

England would have won the title with loss by six points but had no answer to Wales' power, with a first-half penalty by Owen Farrell its only points.
