France players accountable for England 'disaster'

Mathieu Bastareaud Bastareaud has scored five tries in 50 appearances for France

He lost possession which set England up for their first try inside the opening three minutes, the last thing a team thin on confidence and in a stadium they rarely win at required.

Jonny May stole the thunder from the former rugby league star's return to the starting line-up of a Six Nations fixture for the first time in six years. It appears that head coach Jacques Brunel is not sure what his best team looks like, or perhaps even what their best positions are. First half hatrick. Phenomenal half from the whole @EnglandRugby squad.

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

England ensured the showdown with Wales in two weeks in Cardiff will be extra spicy by crushing France 44-8 at Twickenham on Sunday.

England was 30-8 up at halftime, which meant the game was over even before a penalty try and a score from Owen Farrell in the second period.

May's hat-trick score was nearly a carbon copy of his opening try, with Chris Ashton threading the kick behind the French line on that occasion. 'Everyone is working hard and we are putting in some good performances.

Farrell's conversion hit the post but England were 16-3 up.

Following a touchline flare-up, Farrell chased up his own kick as England scored yet another try by putting the ball behind a powerful but sluggish France.

It did not take for long for England to break the deadlock however, Breach touching down in the 11th minute after collecting a pinpoint cross-field kick from fly-half Katy Daley-Mclean, whose conversion made her the first English woman to pass the landmark of 500 global points. "Will start with u8s tag rugby if you can manage to keep up that is". They not only started with a non-specialist, Yoann Huget, at 15 but with two converted centres Damian Penaud and Gael Fickou on the wings.

Yet England entered the interval with a 30-8 lead as Slade scored their fourth try on the stroke of half-time, with Danny Care's grubber kick turning the French defence once more.

And Gatland, who has been in charge of Wales since 2007, has warned Eddie Jones' side to expect an intense game at a packed-out Principality Stadium.

Les Bleus conceded six tries at Twickenham, five from offensive kicks that put them under pressure. Guirado stuck to his task and made one bullocking run in the second-half but the 32-year-old who spoke prior to the tournament of restoring pride to the French jersey may not have too many more chances of doing so with such a performance.

His England had stepped up from smashing Ireland to achieve their biggest win over France since a 37-0 result in 1911.
