Grand Slam Dragons

Wales won the Six Nations championship on Saturday, in decisive style beating France 29-12 at Cardiff, and claiming the Grand Slam. They were deserved victors of the tournament, and have made gigantic strides under the steerage of new coach Warren Gatland since their RWC flameout only a short four months earlier.

More about the Welsh coaching staff and team preparation here.

France were extremely disappointing.

Ireland got pounded badly by England, losing 33-10 in Dublin after getting away to a fast 10-0 lead. Both teams will doubtless consider their Six Nations tournaments to be unmitigated disasters. England's Danny Cipriani slipped into the starting flyhalf role, and wonderboy Jonny Wilkinson's days as England's No. 10 may soon be drawing to a close.

Scotland won a memorable victory over England earlier in the tournament, but had to settle for the Wooden Sppon, falling to Italy 23-20 in Rome.
