CARDIFF, March 16 (Reuters) - Wales beat Ireland 25-7 to win the Six Nations and complete the Grand Slam at the Principality Stadium on Saturday.

Centre Hadleigh Parkes scored a try in the second minute of the match, and fly-half Gareth Anscombe, the man of the match, kicked six penalties and a conversion for a 20-point haul. Ireland scored a consolation try right at the end of the game.

It is Wales's fourth Grand Slam of the Six Nations era and the third won under coach Warren Gatland, who is leaving his post after this year's World Cup.
