The Irish have proven themselves - this century - to be fine and worthy opponents, of course. But England - since the 1990s - have been the prize scalp, and damned hard to take!

congrats Wales - frankly that last 20 minutes was totally dominant, going from 24-all to 40-24 in the manner Wales did was thoroughly deserved. hope your boys go on and win the Slam

Well done, Wales.

Unquestionably the worst Triple Crown winners since 2012, though, or possibly '08 or '05.

Always sweeter to beat a tier 1 nation like England.

So Welsh fans if we were to somehow win a grand slam how much would you crow given the large doses of luck we have had? For me it would still be a lot.

Reasonable amount, but I remember two games in the past few years against England and a try not awarded and it should have been and we lost both games by a score I think. Anscombe grounding and North not in touch to Webb.

I just think we have some real good rugby smarts in the Welsh team: Foxy, Biggar, Tips, AWJ. Pat Lam raves about his Welsh bois at Bristol.

Farrell giving a lecture to his team early in the game about discipline when a quick "no penalties lads" would have done, and keep your players into position when Wales were so close; Elliot Daly turning his back to get out of position for Hardy' score; Robson's blatant block; and Itoje doing the same thing time after time with the same result - a penalty, sum up the difference between the teams. Physically Eng were very good in attack - really quick and fluent. Just too rugby dumb.

It's winning accolades like this that keep me coming back to this wonderful tournament. :thumbup:

Haha, Mr Dominator aside the English have been very charitable on this thread.

Two bullshit calls in a game that led to tries. Wow.

Yep - enjoy your win. Took advantage of our weaknesses, punished our errors and made the most of your opportunities. No complaints here.

It was, actually, a strangely entertaining game, despite the frustrations from an English perspective.
