Wales First Minister Carwyn Jones said the squad had "done the whole country proud yet again" after their 30-3 triumph over England.
Mr Jones said he would like to "heartily congratulate" the whole team and the coaching staff on winning the Six Nations Championship.
"The team deserves a huge pat on the back on their performance - they did what they had to do to defend their title and keep the Six Nations trophy here in Wales", the first minister said.
"I'm sure I speak for Welsh people everywhere when I say - well done boys, you've done the whole country proud yet again", he added.
The Interim Head Coach said he was 'proud to be a Welshman' as Wales clinched the RBS 6 Nations title and deprived England of a Grand Slam.
Austin Healey is being to urged to pay up after offering to bet every person in Wales £1 that England would win the Six Nations.
After an opening weekend defeat, Wales now stand on the brink of Six Nations glory. Can they beat England and clinch the title?
