Six Nations: England's Mako Vunipola ruled out for rest of Six Nations

  • England v France

The French Rugby Federation should throw the chequebook at Joe Schmidt in order to sign him as head coach of their national side, according to former England and British and Irish Lions wing Ugo Monye.

Under Brunel's stewardship, France have lost nine of their last 10 tests, which have included a first-ever loss to Fiji, their biggest defeat to England in more than a century, a second half capitulation which led to defeat against Wales, and a three-match series pummelling at the hands of New Zealand past year.

"Their kicking game was world-class", said fullback Thomas Ramos, who only came on for the second half, where France limited the damage after reaching the interval 30-8 down.

"Owen has a great sense of the game, we have a lot of good kickers, but you kick is only as good as your chase and our chase was outstanding today", Jones said.

The savaging sent England to the top of the Six Nations table with 10 points after two games.

Elliot Daly broke Welsh hearts in Cardiff two years ago, crossing for a 75th-minute try to edge England home 21-16 in a match that Wales dominated.

May scored England's first try after just 64 seconds, the third straight match he's scored in the first two minutes.

Sarri has two weeks to save his job at Chelsea
Just 11 days previously, an embarrassing 4-0 loss at Bournemouth had set the bar at a new low in the Roman Abramovich era. Yet, Sarri has done little to stem the tide, steadfastly refusing to change his approach to the game.

That was faster than his try 91 seconds in against Ireland, and two minutes in against Australia in November.

The score had England ahead 23-3 and supporters were jubilant inside Twickenham. England bashed at the defense and Farrell passed out left to May, who stepped opposite Damian Penaud and was over. He would have been listed as a try scorer had he not been unceremoniously brought to ground without the ball by Gael Fickou with Ashton favourite to win the chase and touch down in the second-half - a penalty try being awarded and the Frenchman sin-binned.

England merely brushed that off and scored on halftime when a Ben Youngs grubber kick was scooped up by Ashton and taken to the posts.

And the half ended with outside centre Henry Slade crossing for England's fourth try to leave them in complete command at 30-8.

Breach helps England beat IrelandReady for new England chapterAn excellent break from France scrum half Pauline Bourdon gave the visitors hope, before Red Rose replacement Hannah Botterman finished a series of pick and drives and then Catherine O'Donnell went over in the corner for England's seventh.

France conceded six tries, five of them being the result of England's offensive kicks that put them under pressure, and Parra's words were damning for his team and their management.
