Wales are still on course to win the Six Nations Championships and Grand Slam for the second time in a row after beating England 23-15.

Wales were made to work hard for the win at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

Their points came from Leigh Halfpenny, who converted his own try, and Stephen Jones, who kicked 15 points.

Paul Sackey and Delon Armitage scored England's tries, with Toby Flood converting one and Andy Goode kicking a drop goal.

Earlier, Scotland were beaten 22-13 by France.

The Scots were the better side in the first half, but Lionel Beauxis kicked France to a 6-3 half-time lead.

France improved after the break, with Fulgence Ouedraogo barging over for their try.

Scotland's Thom Evans touched down next to the posts later on, but France held on for victory.
