    Wales recorded a record 30-3 win over England to deny them the Grand Slam at the Millennium Stadium. Wing Alex Cuthbert scored two second-half tries to give Wales their fourth Six Nations title in nine years. Rob Howley, who has taken charge with head coach Warren Gatland on British and Irish Lions duty, has now guided Wales to four straight wins. Full-back Leigh Halfpenny kicked 12 points, with fly-half Dan Biggar slotting over eight points to secure a resounding win over an England side looking for their first Grand Slam since 2003. England would have won the title had they lost the game by six points but were overrun by their hosts in front of a sell-out Millennium Stadium crowd.
