Wales win Six Nations, French take home wooden spoon

11:03 am on 17 March 2013

Wales have won rugby's Six Nations with a record 30-3 victory over England at Cardiff.

Needing at least a seven-point win to overhaul the English, Wales led 9-3 at half-time then ran in 21 unanswered points, including two tries.

The win denies England their first grand slam in 10 years.

Italy defeated Ireland 22-15 in Rome, the first time the Italians have beaten the Irish in the Six Nations.

But Ireland escaped taking home the wooden spoon for the first time, as France finished last - despite beating visitors Scotland 23-16 in the late game in Paris.
