But some fans were left disappointed that the hosts were not able to hit the magical 50 point mark.

Pockets of supporters inside the stadium shouted “We want 50” during the dying embers of a match which was all-but wrapped up by half-time.

France finally found some defensive resolute in the final 10 minutes to keep the hosts at bay.

Although it can also be said Eddie Jones’ side were not a full-throttle with the bonus point already secured.

But still, some fans wanted their team to kick on and reach half a century which would have sent an even fiercer message to their rivals.

The minority of England faithful also took to social media to express their frustration.

“Quite poor from England, not getting to 50 points,” one fan tweeted.

However, there were plenty of Twitter users cheering their side on away from the ground.

“Come on England, one last push – let’s see the 50!!! #ENGvFRA,” one user noted.

And another added: “What a game England are playing. Come on boys let’s get 50 points.”

Jonny May starred for the Three Lions as he scored a 29-minute first-half hat-trick.

Henry Slade then added his third try of the Championship before the break.

A penalty try and Owen Farrell touchdown added the icing on the cake as England moved two points above Wales at the top of the group.

After an opening-round victory against pre-tournament favourites Ireland, England are now in firm control for the title and Grand Slam.

But they take on second-placed Wales in what many are dubbing the Championship decider in Cardiff next weekend.
