Wales’ hopes sink with Six Nations defeat

WALES' hopes of back-to-back Six Nations championships have been dealt a huge blow after defeat in Ireland.

The Welsh lost 26-3 with coach Warren Gatland labelling the defeat as poor as he had witnessed.

"It's probably one of the worst performances that we've had since I've been involved," he said.

Ireland out-fought Wales across the field and led 13-0 at half-time courtesy of flanker Chris Henry's first international try and eight points from the boot of Jonathan Sexton (pictured).

Sexton added five points after the break and a Paddy Jackson try sealed the win.

England got its championship back on track with an easy 20-0 Calcutta Cup win over Scotland at Murrayfield.

Tries from Luther Burrell and Mike Brown, plus two conversions and a penalty from Owen Farrell and a Danny Care drop goal, saw England home.
