But this year it was a different story as tries from Danny Care and Luther Burrell, as well as 19 points from the boot of Owen Farrell, saw England win 29-18 and claim a first Triple Crown since 2003.
And with Wales in England's pool for the 2015 World Cup, Red Rose captain Robshaw is delighted that his side have left their mark on their rivals.
"It's huge," Robshaw said. "It's our first bit of silverware that hasn't come from a one-off game. We said in the week that our next step is to win a bit of silverware and we've done that.
"More importantly we've put ourselves in a good position going into next week. We need a bit of luck in Paris but we'll look after what we can and get our own performance right.
"We were embarrassed last year. There's no hiding from it. And then for them to beat us here the year before and pick up a Triple Crown on our own pitch is hard to take.
"With the World Cup coming up and us sharing pools it was important for us to get some momentum. We hadn't beaten Wales before this."
