Prince Harry watches England triumph over France in the Six Nations at Twickenham

The Duke of Sussex watched England triumph over France in the Six Nations tournament on Sunday at Twickenham Stadium in London.

Gatland will hope to have a full selection hand available for England when Wales target breaking the record of 11 victories set between 1907 and 1910.

"If we make a lot of changes against Italy, we are going to miss out on that opportunity".

"Having two weeks together will be good for this group of players but we have a few things to work on, which is always pleasing, and a couple of really tough weeks of training".

"At the moment we are having a great deal of success with our kicking and if you chase well it's hard to counter", said Jones.

Coach Jacques Brunel could not say he did not know what was coming after England had used the kick and chase with such success in Dublin last week and he will have more questions to answer after picking a back three of players all operating out of their usual positions. He's been at the top of the tree in European rugby for the last 15 years, through his club and country and the Lions. You have a Welsh team that is doing so well and if I remember the comments (last summer), we weren't doing so well and the gap between us was massive. They got a win, though it wasn't flash. We need to improve and keep the momentum going'. But the decision to put two centres on the wings, and a wing at fullback, was ruthlessly exposed as three of England's four tries in the first half came from expertly weighted kicks in behind the defense where no blue jerseys were anywhere near.

'It's just the brand of rugby we're trying to play.

The Weidler auction house did not say why there were no initial bidders. "Personally, that's something that quite annoys me". Accusations of forgery marred the auction and city mayor Ulrich Maly described it as being in "bad taste" .

A penalty try and one for Owen Farrell put the game to bed early in the second half.

"The second half I thought our performance was even better", Jones added. "Our focus and discipline to keep France scoreless was outstanding". "He does that pretty well".

"At the moment we're having a great deal of success with our kicking, but that could create opportunities in the next game somewhere else".

France did manage to score their own try through Damian Penaud, but it wasn't enough to stop Eddie Jones' side from romping to victory. The teams meet again in Yokohama in October.

Wales lock Jake Ball, meanwhile, believes the best is yet to come from a team that has opened its Six Nations campaign with successive away victories over France and Italy.

The RTÉ analyst was pleased to see Joey Carbery get more game-time in the heat of battle and while the Munster out-half is likely to get the nod for the trip to Rome, Jackman doesn't envisage Schmidt mimicking Wales and making wholesale changes in personnel against an Italian side on a 19-game losing streak in the competition.
