hello and welcome to sportsday with us, olly and tanya. wales are celebrating their 4th six nations grand slam. 3 teams could still win the title heading into today's final round of matches, but victory for the welsh was never in doubt as they overpowered last year's grand slam winners, ireland. they only scored one try but won 25 points to 7. captain alun wynjones says they have now "put a big target on their backs" ahead of the world cup later this year. let's cross live to cardiff, john watson's is there. that was quite a performance from wales, wasn't it? what a performance the. what a performance wales knew what they had to do. the island here, and
not only with the six nations title, but with the grant slam as well. they dominated ireland throughout they got to the best possible start after just one minute they got to the best possible start afterjust one minute when starting asi afterjust one minute when starting as i have come through a lovely little ship behind the irish defence. it was all about gareth who punished some rare irish discipline throughout. the penalty throughout. they my pendency throughout the second half as well as one 25 points to seven. second half as well as one 25 points to the six nations t57; f 7 m n second half as well as one 25 points to the six nations would q, f 7 m n in the six nations if they would have been be today. in the end, it was surprising errors from johnny. a lot of wayward cakes. it wasn't unusualfor a lot of wayward cakes. it wasn't unusual for a player of his calibre
to play in that manner. a surprising lack of discipline from ireland throughout the match as well. a huge shock, you have to say, forjoe, who was hoping that his team was going to be at the right time. we can get some reflection from both camps now. this is very differing moods, as you can imagine from the ireland and welsh camp. it is hard to put into words, we have worked incredibly ha rd over words, we have worked incredibly hard over the last past year. we started well tonight, tricky conditions, i cannot started well tonight, tricky conditions group, >t started well tonight, tricky conditions group, a special group, about that group, a special group, we worked pretty hard for each other. yes, i am part of the players. it is not about me, like we said beforehand, they are playing for themselves, their families, this crowd, and wales as a whole. creating a bit of history, i cannot ta ke creating a bit of history, i cannot take that away from them now. i thought it was, we did not let too
tired, did we could screen it was a very competitive six nations. we have to go away and address by the last, we all strive to get better. we have not done that. a little inconsistent. we have to dust off and finish at the calgary year strong. everyone is looking for it said that cup this year. it looks like there is more in the tank for wells despite getting the grant slam here. absolutely thought that date certainly did not look tired as eddiejones, that certainly did not look tired as eddie jones, that england certainly did not look tired as eddiejones, that england head coach, alluding to that in his post—match press conference. it is all about gatlin. what a performance on how he has mastered this success. this is gareth's last match after he
leaves for japan later this this is gareth's last match after he leaves forjapan later this year. no head coach and a history at that six nations had ever one three grand slam titles. a select group of lush players who manage to win three grand slam titles. you have to say that wells will now go into the world cup as genuine title contenders. it has been a hugely impressive performance of interestingly, gatlin himself said that they would have done this but that they would have done this but that championship, they would go to when the grant slam and gatland and them had done that. that means that england can only finished second at the time limits but
that, of course, meant england could only finish second in the tournament, but there's been no sulking so far in their calcutta match against scotland. it took little more than a minute to score their first try, jack nowell smashing through the scottish defence to go over. tom curry then scored a second try before joe launchbury ran in a third, 21 nil with only fifteen minutes gone. and then england scored the best of a lot, henry slade‘s superb pass inside tojonny may to score his sixth try of the tournament. but scotland got one back through stuart mcinally and have been on fire in the second half. darcy graham flung himself over the line and then marcus bradbury scored scotland's third try. england looked ragged as darcy graham scored his second try of the afternoon to put his side right back in it, and almost immediately, finn russell intercepted to give himself a clear run to the line. the try was converted and from 31—nil down they are now si—all. thatis that is quite match. italy have finished with the wooden spoon for a fourth year. defeat to france in rome was their 22nd 6 nations defeat in a row. tries either side of half time had put the french
in control, but italy had chances to get back in the game. this tackle from damian penaud prevented an italian try five minutes from time. penaud then scored himself to ensure the france ended their six nations on a high. 25—14 the final score at the stadio olimpico. england's women can claim the grand slam with victory over scotland at twickenham. that's the only match today, and it kicks off at 19:30. tomorrow, wales play ireland, and italy host france. it's fa cup quarter final weekend and could swansea be about to cause one of the big upsets olly? thanks, tanya. yes, they could be. we'll get the latest from manchester city's match at swansea in a moment, plus look ahead to wolves game against manchester united with paul ince later. first though, watford are one win away from their first fa cup final since 1984.
substitute andre gray got their winner in a 2—1 win over crystal palace at vicarage road. michael redford reports. neither watford or crystal palace have won the trophy in their hands. they both want to still be standing. neither team had conceded a goal, but that record came to an end for palace when this happened. best hopes of an equaliser will come from a striker who scores four goals in three games against watford. it very nearly became five and four. watford did not keep as in 2016, and he was paid. this match would finish but the same score line, except it
was watford who was celebrating this time. the winner, exactly two minutes after coming on as a substitute. cheers, tears, and watford is a step closer to winning the real thing. did something amazing for us, the players, staff, the supporters, it is an important day to have a chance to enjoy a semifinals, it is something i think we're keeping the same level, competing well, and we are going to enjoy this moment. let's get the latest from what ‘s turning out to be an extraordinary match at the liberty satdium, where manchester city are facing championship swansea, as it stands the premier league champions trail by 2 goals to nil. swansea are languishing in mid
table in the second tier, following reelgation last season. they went in front in this match inside the first 20 minutes when fabian delph's challenge here resulted in a swans penalty. up stepped matt grimes to score for the home side. and they didn't stop there — just a few minutes later ...bersant celina, who fluffed a comical penalty for swansea in their midweek defeat at west brom, but the fomrer city youngster finished a brilliant team move to make it 2—0 to the championship side. what i finish. —— what a finish. we're under way in the second half there now. we will keep across it for the next 20 minutes or so. the late game this evening is at molineux where wolves — who have really impressed in the premier league this season take on manchester united who have won the cup 12 times. paul ince is at the match
working for bbc sport, this game is on bbc one kick off at 5 to 8 , he's won the trophy twice with united and played over 100 times for wolves, i asked him how he thinks this tie will pan out. it is hard to say. they are playing well. they did it at psg. it is a massive game. they've done so well against the top six against the premier league. they are not going to be faced by this. so they are not going to be faced at all. i am looking forward to a really exciting game. but isn't going to take to finally the long—term deal?” game. but isn't going to take to finally the long-term deal? i kind of feel, i've had my say at howl site at the start of the campaign, i a lwa ys site at the start of the campaign, i always felt that it was not that ha rd of always felt that it was not that hard of a task, but i think he is
coming in and taking it to another level. now we can expect the level he has expected to take it to. they would wait till the end of the season? it is a strange one. why do you stand on the makeup of the court is. you have seen watford make its way to the semi finals. we got bright and, others, as we speak, swa nsea bright and, others, as we speak, swansea going against manchester city. it is a good that the are still in the competition?” city. it is a good that the are still in the competition? i always felt that these type of teams that we are talking about, i think we should get them a chance because the last big six teams, but the premier league at the champions league, these bigger clubs do not play that
best sells at the sites. so the lesson teams have a better chance to get their way through. it is a good romance to the cup. there are just 5 premier league matches this weekend because of the cup, all three games today saw late drama and what a match we had at the london stadium. west ham were heading for defeat against bottom side huddersfield, but two goals from chicarito hernandez saw them win 4—3. huddersfield had led 3—1, the first time they had scored 3 this season, but they are 16 points off safety now. can you not see on my face that i am totally disappointed ? what can you not see on my face that i am totally disappointed? what should i say at the moment? look what happened. we were leading 3—1. i
felt the score, which he had not done this season. i showed them how we can score. and there are reasons why we are at the bottom at the table, andi why we are at the bottom at the table, and i say it at the press conference. so... yeah. the best merits of the team was to never give up. we talked before the a that this is a team that plays well, maybe they do not score many goals, but they are dangerous at pieces. he scored the first two goals, after that, at the moment, pieces. he scored the first two goals, afterthat, at the moment, it was difficult, but we tried and we did it. leicester played most of the match with 10 men at burnley but still won 2—1. wes morgan's header won the match in the 90th minute. they'd had harry maguire sent off in the lith minute. burnley remain 2 points above the relegation zone. a 94th minute goal from matt ritchie saw newcastle salvage a point away at bournemouth.
they had taken the lead through salomon rondon before two josh king goals put the cherries on course for victory, but it finished 2—all. a big point! what a fantasticjob he has done in newcastle. today's matches were mostly significant for the bottom of the table , huddersfield look doomed and could bejust a couple fo games away from relegation now. southhampton has a game in burnley. a couple of games away from relegation now. looks like this theme is gone as well. there has been a goal in swansea. it is to—
one. the red be as exciting as well. it is 38-21. we one. the red be as exciting as well. it is 38—21. we will get the result when we get it. arguably the biggest match of the day was in the championship... sheffield united securing a huge win at elland road. chris basham scored a crucial goal, which sees the blades climb above their promotion rivals leeds and into second. the home side pressed for an equaliser but couldn't salvage a point in a game where keeper kiko casilla was shown a straight red card in the closing minutes. elsewhere in the championship, leaders norwich have opened up a four point gap at the top after a 2—1win over relegation strugglers rotherham. fourth placed west brom made it back to back wins after the sacking of darren moore, beating brentford one nil, and aston villa moved
into the playoffs beating fifth placed middlesbrough three nil. at the bottom of the table, there was a big win for wigan over bolton. in the scottish premiership, rangers could only narrow the gap on celtic at the top by a point. the were held to a one all draw by kilmarnock — it's their fourth game in a row without a win. third placed aberdeen drew one one with livingstone. hamilton moved six points clear of the bottom two with a first win in 11 attempts over hearts. hibs beat motherwell 2—nil — they're now unbeaten in five. stjohnstone against st mirren was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch. lewis hamilton has started his quest for a sixth formula one world championship in the best possible way by claiming pole for tomorrow's australian grand prix. while it was business as usual for the briton, there was a changing of the order lower down the grid as nick parrott reports.
a new season with new drivers and new cars, but nothing new up front. the quickest and all of practise into at that three qualifying sessions. the britons smashed that track records for the fifth year and the route. from whence, we had no idea where we would be. we were hoping to be by b i, guys back at the factory had been working so hard, this weekend, they had just been working to perfection. stumbled around alford park. the consolation for sebastian as he managed to win for sebastian as he managed to win for third on the grid last year. we have a good race car. we are in good form, mercedes is the clear favourite after the result today. the i had to race, otherwise, it would be quite dull, other people would be quite dull, other people would agree. we will see what happens tomorrow. behind, things are
interesting but stopped the youngest driver showed potential on his debut. optimism at the difficult yea rs, debut. optimism at the difficult years, another becky, while robert returns to the grid at the 805 as a way, has had remarkable. william carr i5 way, has had remarkable. william carr is certainly not great and it la5t5. england has scored a goal. if that i5 england has scored a goal. if that is converted, this cup will be joined between england and scotland. what a match. i wait to round off this season 5ix nations. now let's round up some of today's other stories. .. roger federer will have bye into the final of the indian wells ma5ter5 after rafa nadal pulled out of the semis with a knee injury... nadal announced that he wouldn't be able to take to the court
for what would have been his 39th meeting with federer. the first semi final between dominic thiem and milo5 raonic is already underway. tour de france winner geraint thomas has pulled out of the tirreno—adriatico race in italy with stomach problems, but there was more success for adam yates who finished third in a sprint to the line on stage four. yates retains the race leader's bluejersey, as alexey lutsenko claimed stage four. ireland are struggling against afghanistan in their test match which is taking place in india. the irish lost an early wicket in their second innings and they still trail afghanistan by 120 runs. the two sides are both playing just their second test match. that calcutta cup has been drawn. we will have a reaction to that at half past seven. nat sciver made 93 from 73 balls
to help england's women to a comprehensive 154—run win in a rain—affected opening one day international in sri lanka. half centuries from amyjones and captain heather knight helped england to 331 for seven from their 50 overs. katherine brunt took three wickets as sri lanka slumped to 46 for seven before the rain came. and the home side couldn't reach the revised target of 314. special olympics great britain has won its first medals of the games in abu dhabi. the team has more than 120 athletes with intellectual disabilities competing across 17 sports in the middle east. stuart pollitt is there. special olympics great britain is on the board in terms of gold metals here. they have also had success in the pack gymnastics arena where both the pack gymnastics arena where both the men's and women's team brought home some silverware. among those in action is someone who has been creating quite a start with his

there have been a few glimmers of brightness. there was northumberland though, not so long ago. underneath this area of low pressure with the cold air to the north, some slightly milder air is just trying to bump its way a little farther north currently. through this evening what we will tend to see is the snow across the far north of england and southern scotland turning to rain. one way or another, it looks like it could be a challenging night if you are travelling out and about for your evening out. still, some heavy snow to come across the highlands and into aberdeenshire. rain and a sleety snowy mix across central and southern scotland. some punchy showers, maybe with rumbles of thunder for northern ireland. then ice will become an issue as the skies start to clear. for the south, here is your evening from 6 to 9pm., rain pushing its way to the southwest of england, the midlands, eventually to east anglia and the southeast. skies clear behind that for some time, but then, it looks like some heavy showers will pack into north wales. the winds still remain particularly gusty. they will start to ease overnight. still, those gusts strong enough to do some damage in the coming few hours. here we are from 9pm onwards, a wet end to the day across
the southeast andies to east anglia. clearer skies following. the lull of into the north sea. still breezy behind the lull. showers carrying into northern ireland, north wales, northern england, north midlands, and the north of scotland, and chilly across the northern half of the uk with a frost, so ice can be possibilityjust across anywhere in the northern half of the uk, first thing on sunday. sunday, we are on the rear edge of our area of low pressure. it stays breezy but not as windy as today. we could see some bands of more organised showers running their way south. it certainly looks like there's still some more wintry weather for scotland, for northern england for a time. some heavier rain pushing into wales and the southwest of england. dry on sunday, likely to be east anglia and the southeast. feeling chillier here, a milder day as the temperatures get up higher into the single figures range. for next week, though, finally, it looks like things will become quieter, drier, and certainly less windy.
