England boss Stuart Lancaster admitted the better team won after watching his side slip to a 30-3 defeat against Wales at the Millennium Stadium.

The hosts retained the RBS 6 Nations crown courtesy of their emphatic win in Cardiff.

"We got in at half-time and thought we were going okay, although we didn't have the execution right, or dominate the breakdown - and set-pieces were a problem," Lancaster told BBC1. "But the first quarter of the second half wasn't good enough and Wales thoroughly deserved the win, no complaints."

He added: "Wales played well and we didn't turn up and match their physicality.

"It's a simple game and their physicality was better than ours."
