Wales crowned European champions

Wales were crowned European champions after comfortably beating Ireland 30-4 in the Championship decider in Bray.

The visitors needed just a draw to make sure of the title, but triumphed in impressive fashion as they brushed past Ireland, scoring five tries.

After France had beaten Scotland earlier in the day to put pressure on Wales, Dalton Grant touched down in the corner, before Lewis Reece and Steven Parry also crossed the whitewash.

Rodhri Lloyd took control of a loose ball to make it 22-0 at half-time, and Elliot Kear scored after the break to secure the win.

Callum Mulkeen scored a late consolation for Ireland, who could themselves have snatched the title with a 39-point win.
