After a slow start England came from behind to beat France 19-16 at Twickenham Stadium on the opening day of the 2017 Six Nations Championship. France looked like the stronger side from the onset of the match, but by the end of the first half, the teams were tied 9-9 following three penalty kicks apiece. The first try of the match was scored by Rabah Slimani giving France the lead at 60 minutes Ben Te'o scored a try in the 71st minute to give England the win. England captain Dylan Hartley was interviewed after the win.

"We got through that one and a huge amount of credit needs to go to our finishers today. Ben Te'o and James Haskell gave us some go-forward at the end there, said Hartley. "Week one of the tournament we'll take that win, but there's plenty to work on. It keeps us grounded, keeps us ready for next week and we'll have to be a lot better to prepare for Wales." Eddie Jones talked about the form of his side. "I felt some players were still in their club mentality so that's something we need to work on. We were disjointed in attack and we lacked urgency in defense,” said England Head coach Jones. "Now we know what we've got to work on, we will get there. The finishers made a fantastic impact on the game - that is the strength of our team, we have a brilliant 23-man squad."

Looking for another Grand Slam, England continued their winning run with a thrilling 21-16 win against arch=rivals Wales at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. England maintained possession during the first quarter before Ben Youngs scored a try in the 18th minute. Wales picked up their form and grew into the half scoring a try through Liam Williams to go 13-8 up at the break. Wales continued their attack after the break, however England scored with an Owen Farrell penalty in the 56th minute. Wales responded five minutes later with a third Leigh Halfpenny penalty. Owen Farrell kicked his third penalty at ten minutes bringing England within two points of Wales. Elliot Daly scored a 76th minute try, and Owen Farrell converted to give England a five point victory.

England will welcome back Mako Vunipola and Anthony Watson from injury for their upcoming Six Nations match against Italy says Eddie Jones. Prop Vunipola was sidelined in December with a knee injury while wing Watson suffered a hamstring injury last month.Billy Vunipola could be fit for the final game against Ireland. Dylan Hartley, replaced after 46 minutes in Saturday's win over Wales, said boss Jones told him he "captained the side brilliantly this week".
