  • Ruthless Wales seal Grand Slam with emphatic victory

The Principality Stadium roof will be open for Saturday's Six Nations clash between Wales and Ireland.

Victory earned Wales its first Six Nations title since 2013, and its first Grand Slam since 2012.

Wales shrugged off the rain, wind and Ireland to win the Six Nations and complete the Grand Slam this morning (local time).

Ireland - who scored a late consolation through Jordan Larmour - finish third behind England in their final Six Nations with Joe Schmidt in charge, while magnificent Wales' winning run now stands at 14 matches after they got the job done in emphatic fashion.

In truth, once Parkes gathered Anscombe's chip over the top and dived in for the opening score, there was no coming back from that for Ireland.

"There's been a request from Wales that in the interest of the quality of the game and the very poor weather forecast that the roof be closed", said Schmidt. Wales were as low as eighth in the rankings less than two years ago after finishing fifth in the Six Nations.

Schmidt revealed that some Irish players spent part of the week in isolation after they were hit by a stomach bug, which disrupted their preparations during a six-day turnaround before the match in Cardiff, but conceded that his team had been out-played by a Welsh side that were buoyed by their hunt for a Grand Slam title.

Wales' forwards laid the foundations, driving forcefully from a lineout, but the try owed everything to Anscombe, whose sublime angled kick off the outside off his right boot was caught by Parkes.

Jacob Stockdale had their best chance of the first half when he got a partial breakaway and surged down the wing, only to be hauled back by Parkes as he went into the 22.

"It is disappointing but we will talk about the aftermath afterwards, we should focus more on Wales and a deserved Grand Slam".

Anscombe then completed his penalty hat-trick, and Wales trooped off 16-0 ahead, 40 minutes from glory. "They've had so many days in the team when they've been the hub upon which the wheel has turned and the wheel has generally gone forward".
