England, under the stewardship of new super coach Eddie Jones, finally got to celebrate winning their first Six Nations Championship since 2011 when they beat France in Paris 31-21 on Saturday. The victory against Le Blue was made even sweeter as it also guaranteed their first Grand Slam title in 13 years.

England scored three tries without reply thanks to Care, Cole and Watson and the trusty right boot of Owen Farrell added two conversions and four penalties, which ensured there was no late drama or disappointment as in some of their previous campaigns.

There was serious concern over the welfare of Captain Dylan Hartley when he was knocked unconscious during a tackle in the 68th minute and had to be carried from the pitch after receiving lengthy medical treatment.

Thankfully however, a proud and heroic Hartley was back on the pitch to celebrate the historic win with his team mates and more importantly to lift the Six Nations and Grand Slam trophies, which could be the first of many under the brilliant stewardship of Eddie Jones.
