Wales flanker Justin Tipuric said their stunning 30-3 Six Nations victory over England felt like a dream.

The Welsh needed to win by at least seven points at the Millennium Stadium to retain their title but completely dominated proceedings and scored their biggest ever championship win over England.

"It is a bit unreal really, it is a dream to be honest," said Tipuric, who picked up the man of the match award.

"We played so well in front of a great crowd and our boys were outstanding and worked so hard for each other.

"We know what we can do and we have been ready since Monday and to turn up Saturday and with such a great performance. We are chuffed to bits."

Wales endured a horrendous start to their Six Nations campaign when they crashed to a home defeat against Ireland, but Tipuric says that the criticism they received after that defeat spurred the players on.

"We had a lot of bad media but I think it gave us a bit of a kick up the backside," he added.

"We kept tight and we just worked so hard in training."

Alex Cuthbert ran in two second-half tries against England and the winger was delighted that the hard work they put in on the training pitch paid off.

"We said from the start that we had a bit of blip but we didn't want to let go of that trophy as easy as we could, we wanted it back and we are so glad that we have," he said.

"It is indescribable to be fair, the last few years has been with such a great group of guys and we fully deserve this.

"We have worked hard in the last few weeks and it has all worked out - we couldn't ask for anything better."
