England survived a late challenge by Wales to win the Triple Crown on Saturday as Eddie Jone’s men continued their march towards a first Six Nations Grand slam title in 13 years.

Anthony Watson scored the only try for England while Owen Farrel hit 20 points with the boot in the 25-21 victory at Twickenham.

England – who last won the tournament in 2011 – now head to Paris next week to face France with the Grand Slam firmly in their sights.

England’s Australian coach Jones has now overseen a perfect four wins in his first season in charge.

Earlier on Saturday Ireland broke their own Six Nations record by scoring nine tried in a 58-15 thumping of Italy for their first win this campaign.

On Sunday France travel to Murrayfield where a win is needed against Scotland to take the title race to the final weekend.
