England coach Stuart Lancaster has admitted that he is "gutted" following Saturday's defeat to Wales in their Six Nations decider.

Lancaster's side were hammered 30-3 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday as defending champions Wales pipped them to the title.

When asked how he felt after the match, the England boss told BBC Sport: "Gutted.

"The start of the second half wasn't good enough and Wales thoroughly deserve the win. I don't think it was a psychological thing. Wales played well and we didn't turn up and we didn't match their physicality."

England headed into the match looking for their first Grand Slam since 2003.
