Jonny May crossed three times in under 30 minutes to set England on their way to an impressive 44-8 win over France in the second Guinness Six Nations match.

The tournament's only unbeaten teams clash in a fortnight with Jones recalling the claim made by Gatland while England were reeling from a five-Test losing run that Wales and their old foes are "poles apart".

"We're gutted for Taulupe, but this is the best course of action for him moving forwards as a player", Bath director of rugby Todd Blackadder said.

England manager Eddie Jones has warned Nigel Owens and his officiating team to be wary of French attempts to slow the speed of play ahead of today's Six Nations tie. Every Warren Gatland side contests the breakdown hard, defensively they are well drilled and they have got points in them.

Nigel Owens has called out a fan on Twitter after he criticised his decision to award a penalty try to England in their win over France at Twickenham on Sunday.

"England is going to be a massive crunch match", said the Berkshire-born Scarlets forward.

Safi N'Diaye, Pauline Bourdon (twice) and Romane Menager scored in reply for France during the second period to earn a bonus-point, but it was far too little.
