England hammer France 34-10 at Twickenham

England hammered France 34-10 in the Six Nations at Twickenham this afternoon to silence their critics. Martin Johnson's side finally kept their discipline and were able to deliver on the attacking promise that they hinted at in earlier games.

Mark Cueto opened the scoring after two-minutes following an electric break from Riki Flutey. The New Zealand born centre dotted down twice himself before Delon Armitage and flanker Joe Worsley got in on the act to give England a 29-0 lead at the break.

France again proved that they tend to follow a brilliant performance with an absolute shocker. Les Bleus were one paced, laboured and void of ideas in contrast to England's new found precision and flair. The result will come as a great relief for Martin Johnson and his coaching staff who have watched their team push both Wales and Ireland close before being let down by lack of discipline.
