England head coach Eddie Jones turned his sights to the "greatest Welsh side ever" after a resounding mauling of France gave his men two wins from two Guinness Six Nations games.

"Trying to raise the bar after last week was the challenge, but we came out and definitely played some good rugby today", he told ITV.

It was Wales' 11th successive victory, matching their record winning streak set between 1907 and 1910. "Preparation starts on Wednesday".

England - who are bidding for their second Grand Slam under Jones - head to a potential title decider with Wales in Cardiff on February 23 with Warren Gatland's side also having won their opening two games. Come and referee a game yourself then you can let us all judge you then.

McDowell rolls back the years at Pebble Beach
Nine players were a single shot back on five under, including South Africa's Branden Grace, who played the Pebble Beach course. The 38-year-old is making his third start at the Pebble Beach Pro Am when he would usually still be on a break in Australia.

Jones, who highlighted the astute tactical kicking of England captain Owen Farrell and full-back Elliot Daly, added: "Your kicks are only as good as your chases".

France coach Jacques Brunel admitted it had been no contest and that England had beaten them up from the start. We need to improve and keep the momentum going'.

The penalty try was awarded after Chris Ashton was perceived to have been tackled off the ball, meaning he was prevented from nearly certainly crossing the line to add another five points, to their 30-8 lead at the time.

"I was pleased with our second half because we shut them out, although we missed some scoring opportunities but it was better".

Daniil Medvedev tops Marton Fucsovics to win the title — ATP Sofia
The seventh seed overcame the world number 12 Tsitsipas, in straight sets in their quarter-final that was played Friday. With the confidence from the win, Daniil Medvedev will be very hard to stop.

'We didn't speak about the record at all this week, but we will probably talk about it before England, ' Gatland added.

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.

"Jonny May's like when you go to the park and you see someone with a tennis ball and they throw it, the dog runs 100 miles per hour and chases it and brings it back". The teams meet again in Yokohama in October.

"I'm very disappointed of course, especially in our first half" said Brunel following France's 10th loss in 13 Tests.
