England 29 Wales 18 player ratings: Who was the star man at Twickenham?
Outstanding performances from Lawes, Burrell and Farrell
Sunday 09 March 2014
England enter the final day of the 2014 Six Nations in title contention after comfortably defeating Wales at Twickenham to secure a first Triple Crown since 2003.
Danny Care and Luther Burrell scored tries and Owen Farrell kicked 19 points, completing all seven of his shots at goal, in a match dominated by Stuart Lancaster's men.
Wales' hopes of completing an unprecedented hat-trick of Championship title wins were left in tatters, despite the best efforts of Leigh Halfpenny who kicked all their points.
Wales visited England's half but were met with a white wall and then hit on the counter on more than one occasion.
One break almost saw Burrell finish a wonderful passage of play in which Courtney Lawes showed remarkable hands, but the Northampton centre put a foot in touch before touching down.
Wales were disintegrating and ready to leak a third try and while England were unable to conjure the score their superiority deserved, last year's 30-3 rout in Cardiff had been avenged.
