England have ended a run of four successive runners-up finishes by being crowned RBS 6 Nations champions in Eddie Jones’ debut campaign as head coach.

A thrilling 25-21 victory over Wales at Twickenham on Saturday, followed by Scotland’s 29-18 home win against France on Sunday, guaranteed England a first title since 2011 with a round to spare.

England will complete their Six Nations in Paris next Saturday and victory would result in the Grand Slam – an achievement which for the Red Rose was last managed by Martin Johnson’s World Cup winners of 2003.
