Wales' Six Nations hopes have been dashed after a 29-18 defeat at Twickenham this afternoon.

England's Danny Care scored a try after just four minutes, with centre Luther Burrell crossing in the first half, as England went in at half time 20-15 to the good.

Wales were grateful to fullback Leigh Halfpenny who kicked six penalties in the game, but England, for whom Owen Farrell kicked 19 points, kept their noses ahead to seal the 29-18 victory. It's their first triple crown since 2003.

It leaves England, Ireland and France fighting it out for the Six Nations title next weekend.
