England 41 - 26 France Women - Match Report & Highlights

The 35-year-old said that the French language barrier has prevented top quality southern hemisphere coaches - such as Schmidt, Eddie Jones and Warren Gatland - from taking the reigns of the French national side.

"There's nothing to say", Brunel told France 2 after the slaughter.

As his side ran out 44-8 winners here at Twickenham, there was evidence that England were heeding his advice: they thrashed Les Bleus and took one step closer to winning a Grand Slam that would establish them as the team to beat at the World Cup this year.

Kicks behind the French defence on a rainswept pitch proved the visitors' undoing, with May repeatedly tormenting opposing wing Damian Penaud.

For the fifth game in a row, England had a try within the first three minutes.

"He is full of inventiveness, possesses some lovely touches, takes his fellow players into the danger areas and makes things happen".

While the hosts' kicks were chased by hungry backs, France's were purely defensive, and Brunel's side were nearly always on the back foot.

"We know Wales against England is always a massive fixture, and to be fair to them, they are playing some excellent rugby". Two of May's three tries came via that method and the tactic was used in the build up to his other score.

Further scores from forwards Hannah Botterman and Catherine O'Donnell eased England to victory before Bourdon added her second just moments after taking a hit to the head.

And May completed his hat-trick as he again raced onto a kick, this time delivered by Chris Ashton once Parra misjudged a high ball.

England skipper Owen Farrell, who was struggling with the conversation in the blustery winds, fed May with a looping pass for his second try of the afternoon.

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.

Guirado was then penalized for not rolling away in a ruck and Owen Farrell kicked England 8-0 ahead in a shower.

Following a touchline flare-up, Farrell chased up his own kick as England scored yet another try by putting the ball behind a powerful but sluggish France.

■ SCRUM-HALF Morgan Parra has hinted at discord in France's camp amid calls for coach Jacques Brunel to be sacked.

"We were really under pressure from the English side, especially from their kicking game and we were not able to overcome that".
