Here comes the Triple Crown

Another great match by the Welsh who outruled Ireland, gaining the Triple Crown. Now only France stands between the Dragons and the Grand Slam. Way to go Wales!

They will have to avoid sin bins as they got two, and if in the first one they managed to hold Ireland's pace during the second one they underwent a six points comeback which brought Ireland just a point short. A pointless violence on Ryan Jones caused the referee to award a penalty with which Hook secured another three points that blew the Irish out of the match.

Shane Williams, who performed another great match, scored another wonderful try, while Shane Horgan missed for just a few inches thanks to a very-last-second/very-last-inch tackle, even if his action was a very good one.

Unluckily Brian O'Driscoll suffered a hamstring tear which will cause him to miss next week's clash against England.
