England’s Mako Vunipola ruled out of Six Nations with ankle injury

Mathieu Bastareaud is brought back in to add power to the France midfield

That impressive performance followed a win over reigning champions Ireland in Dublin in England's opening game of the tournament, but Jones is mindful that another stern test awaits in the Welsh capital on February 23.

The Saints lock ruled the skies with five lineout takes on his own ball, and even more impressively two steals on the French throw as England appeared to cope comfortably in Maro Itoje's absence.

"All I know is that we are playing against the greatest Welsh side ever, so that's enough for me".

There seems little doubt England will be. We let France in during the second half but that only shows what a world-class side they are.

England cricket: Joe Root brilliantly responds to 'homophobic slur'
Root's words were praised online by a number of sports stars, including Gary Lineker and former England captain Nasser Hussein. " Sometimes things are said on the field but they should stay on the field ".


Winger Jonny May had a hat trick in the first half-hour.

'If this was a normal year, on reflection, maybe we wouldn't have made so many changes, but we wanted to give everyone in the 31 an opportunity to be involved in the first two games'.

The hosts were a try up within two minutes. And the stats do not make for pretty reading as England found France's weakness and turned the screw. England bashed at the defense and Farrell passed out left to May, who stepped opposite Damian Penaud and was over.

The hat-trick was completed inside half an hour when Chris Ashton, making his first Six Nations start since 2013, kicked into the path of May.

With his 12th try in his last 12 tests, May eclipsed New Zealand's Rieko Ioane to be test rugby's highest try-scorer since the start of 2018. Three times England caught him out allowing Jonny May to touch down in his corner - once Penaud looked despairingly behind him to see if fullback Yoann Huget was covering and although he was not the Clermont three-quarter made no effort to get back.

Cops Say Phone Records Jussie Smollett Provided Isn't Enough To Prove Assault
On Monday night, Fox 32 Chicago anchor Rafer Weigel reported that police "received cell phone records today from Smollett's camp". He also said in an earlier statement that he'd been "100% factual and consistent on every level" when working with police.


It was a hard defeat to take for France but the impact of Antoine Dupont from the bench was a real positive.

Wasps scrum-half Dan Robson saw a significant landmark as he took to the field for his first England cap, replacing Leicester Tigers No. 9 Ben Youngs for the final 10 minutes as England closed out the victory. Farrell kicked an additional 14 points.

"I still believe Gareth Anscombe is the outside-half who should start what will be monumental and potentially Six Nations Championship decider at the Principality Stadium in a couple of weeks", Johns wrote for Wales Online.

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

Solo and Duo modes might be coming to Apex Legends
