On Monday evening, hundreds lined up outside the Senedd in Cardiff Bay to give a heroes' welcome to the winning team.

The First Minister, Mark Drakeford, welcomed the players and the Welsh Rugby Union, before they took to the steps to face a loyal and excited crowd.

The Six Nations trophy and Triple Crown plate were also on display.

Wales' 25-7 win against Ireland on Saturday stretched their consecutive wins to a record 14 games, setting them in pole position for a successful Rugby World Cup campaign in Japan in September.
