Statement by the First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones: Six Nations victory

Speaking from the Millennium Stadium after Wales’ Grand Slam victory over France, First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones, said:

“Today, we witnessed the arrival of a new generation of Welsh rugby heroes – a group of players who have equalled the success of those great Welsh teams of the past.

"The pressure was entirely on Wales to perform today and they won in style. This match - more than any other in this year's Six Nation tournament - showed just how mature this young team really is.

“In the space of just five months, they have reached the World Cup Semi-Final and won the Grand Slam. Today, Welsh rugby moved up a significant notch. We are now without doubt, the predominant rugby team in the Northern Hemisphere.

"My congratulations go to the players, to Warren Gatland and the coaching staff for what they've achieved for our country today. They have made Wales proud.”
