Wales secured the Triple Crown after beating rivals England 40-24 in their Six Nations clash at the Principality Stadium.

While Wales wrapped up the first major silverware of head coach Wayne Pivac’s reign in bonus-point fashion, his opposite number Eddie Jones saw England’s title hopes reduced to ruins.

It was England’s second defeat of a miserable Six Nations campaign that began with Scotland claiming a first win at Twickenham for 38 years, despite tries by Anthony Watson and Ben Youngs, four Farrell penalties and a conversion.

But Wales proved unstoppable and backed up victories over Ireland and Scotland by dismissing their fiercest rivals behind closed doors in Cardiff, with Biggar kicking a penalty and two conversions, while Sheedy booted 13 points.

Centre George North led Wales out as he became the youngest player to win 100 caps for their country.

Meanwhile, Ireland ran in six tries to thrash Italy 48-10 in Rome.

Garry Ringrose, Hugo Keenan and Will Connors scored to open up a first-half lead .

CJ Stander, Connors and Keith Earls added further tries after the break as Ireland strolled to victory.

For Italy, it is a 30th consecutive Six Nations defeat.
