The Wales full-back 'overwhelmed' as he's awarded title in Cardiff
Leigh Halfpenny has thanked his Six Nations teammates for giving him the chance the to equal Neil Jenkins’ championship points record.
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.
Sam Warburton's impromptu half-time speech inspired Wales to brush aside England and retain their Six Nations crown, according to an interview with Leigh Halfpenny in The Telegraph.
Warburton lost the captaincy during the tournament, first to Ryan Jones and then Gethin Jenkins for the Millennium Stadium decider.
Halfpenny said that prop Jenkins gave his speech, before flanker Warburton rose and delivered some stirring words of his own, urging the players to think of the feelings that lifting the trophy again would bring.
Wales were 9-3 ahead at the break, but two Alex Cuthbert tries saw them roar clear in the second period, to notch a record 30-3 victory over England, and win back-to-back Six Nations titles.
Alex Cuthbert is the next Wales star to auction his boots for charity, after Sam Warburton raised £5250 by selling the boots he wore in Saturday's win over England.
He is raising money for Ty Hafan, a hospice for children and young people.
Wales hero Alex Cuthbert will be out of action for up to six weeks, after he tore his hamstring during his match-winning performance against England on Saturday.
The 22-year-old Blues winger scored two tries, as Wales won the game, and snatched the Six Nations title.
Confirmation that he was injured during the game has led The Daily Mail to write the headline: 'Cuthbert beat England on one leg!'
The paper says he was nearly taken off injured at half-time and was surprised he could run to score both second-half tries.
Sam Warburton's Twitter auction of the boots he wore in Wales' Six Nations victory over England raised £5,250 for patients being treated at the Velindre Cancer Centre.
Warburton launched the auction on Tuesday asking followers to tweet him their bids.
Wales full-back Leigh Halfpenny has taken to Twitter to quash rumours of an incident involving England flanker Tom Croft during Saturday's Six Nations decider.
Halfpenny said: "Guys, just to confirm @tomcroft6 didn't do what's being alleged of him. He's a top bloke and a great player."
Croft responded with a re-tweet concluded with "thanks bud."

As a play, coming into a championship on a Lions year, how important your performance is going to be. They're under the microscope throughout the championship. And they performed as you'd expect them to today, they turned up.
Probably pressure was on us a little bit more, and everyone was talking about England winning, and the points. But we just made sure we started well.
_And some of them might have a busy summer...
