The roof at the Millennium Stadium will be closed for Saturday's Six Nations decider between Wales and England.

The weather forecast is dubious in the run-up to the 5pm kick-off and the Welsh Rugby Union confirmed that both teams have agreed to the roof being shut.

A short statement confirmed: "The WRU can confirm the roof at the Millennium Stadium will be closed for Saturday's Wales v England RBS 6 Nations fixture."

Closing the roof requires the say-so of both sides, and with so much riding on the match their verdict has been unanimous.

Wales and England made the same decision in their last meeting at the ground in 2011, which England won 26-19.
