French media slam France after emphatic loss to England in Six Nations

England 44 - 8 France: Jones’ men sets sights on ‘greatest’ Welsh side

But France only reduced the bleeding in the second half as England threw on reserves and rested stars such as Mako Vunipola, George Kruis, Ashton, and Sinckler in the third quarter.

England top the standings with 10 points from two bonus-point wins, with Wales - who they face next in Cardiff - on eight after their two opening victories.

France captain Guilhem Guirado knocked on and England full-back Elliot Daly, recovering the loose ball, cut a line through the visitors defence before putting in a clever angled kick behind the cover and into the in-goal area. First half hatrick. Phenomenal half from the whole @EnglandRugby squad.

His England had stepped up from smashing Ireland to achieve their biggest win over France since a 37-0 result in 1911. I think we don't work on it enough, even not at all, ' Parra said.

"Our focus and discipline to keep France scoreless was outstanding". We're playing the greatest Welsh side ever; we're going to have to be at our absolute best.

While a fourth added: "Jonny May is probably one of the best but underrated wingers".

England took a massive step towards winning the Women's Six Nations with an emphatic 41-26 victory over reigning champions France in Doncaster. If teams defend as they do now, there's space in the back field.

The home side thought they had opened the scoring in the fifth minute when full-back Sarah McKenna breezed past two opponents to touch down under the posts, but following an intervention from the TMO the try was ruled out after Poppy Leitch was penalised for blocking Romane Menager in the scrum.

His third was a far easier finish after Chris Ashton joined the kicking gang, nudging a flawless grubber into the same left corner to send Twickenham wild as England led 23-8 with less than half an hour gone. He subsequently conceded the penalty that allowed Owen Farrell to stretch the lead to 8-0 and missed a crucial tackle on Henry Slade as the centre went over on the stroke of half-time.

"Jonny May's like when you go to the park and you see someone with a tennis ball and they throw it, the dog runs 100 miles per hour and chases it and brings it back".

France scrumhalf Morgan Parra has questioned their training methods under coach Jacques Brunel following their 44-8 Six Nations loss to England.

"England put us under pressure throughout the game and we just could not deal with it", he said, having failed to stem the tide with the second-half introduction of uncapped fullback Thomas Ramos.
