Things are in our own hands - Wales boss Gatland

England 44 - 8 France: Jones’ men sets sights on ‘greatest’ Welsh side Six Nations news: Gatland sends England warning ahead of game vs Wales

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

"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.

It was hoped Faletau would return for the final two rounds against Scotland and Ireland but Warren Gatland must complete the tournament without the Bath number eight.

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.

"When you've got a bonus point after 30 minutes, you've done pretty well but I thought our second half performance was even better", said Jones. 'Hopefully we'll go under the radar.

"You question if you kept the same team and had a real convincing win in terms of finishing off those opportunities we created, maybe the other question would be why didn't you use more of the squad when you had the chance to?"

But Monye believes that the FFR need to do everything in their power to get Schmidt on board, stating that France's lack of southern hemisphere influence has left them behind their Six Nations rivals.

France captain Guilhem Guirado knocked on and the England full-back Elliot Daly, recovering the loose ball, surged past three defenders before kicking the ball along the ground into the try zone.

England were not done before half-time, when McKenna's superb line break set up Breach for her second as she dived over in the corner as the bonus-point was secured before the break. "He'll do the best to keep the game moving I think".

England face Italy and Scotland following their Wales clash, while Gatland's side take on Ireland and Scotland.

Jones reserved particular praise for May, who took his Test tally to 22 tries in 42 appearances, with two of his scores coming as reward for chasing kicks.

Les Bleus are enduring a turbulent period under the guidance of current head coach Jacques Brunel, who has lost the faith of his players who are reportedly plotting a revolt against him following an extremely poor run of results.

France replied through a Morgan Parra penalty and Damian Penaud try in an error-strewn performance which does not bode well in World Cup year.
