Wales caretaker coach Rob Howley has hailed his "outstanding" players after a 30-3 win over England saw them retain their Six Nations crown.

The defending champions were dominant at the Cardiff Millennium Stadium on Saturday as two tries from Alex Cuthbert ended England's hopes of the Grand Slam.

"Wales were outstanding today," Howley told BBC Sport. "This is better than the Grand Slam last year. We outclassed England.

"This is a unique place in world rugby. With the crowd behind us, we needed to start well."

Wales came into the match knowing that a seven-point victory was enough for them to successfully defend their title.
