England coach Eddie Jones had an ominous warning for world rugby after England beat Scotland 61-21 to secure a second straight Six Nations.

Jones’ men now have an unassailable lead on 18 points. Ireland and France, who gained a bonus point victory over Italy earlier, both have 10 points, then come Wales and Scotland on nine, with Italy last without a point.

And the coach was in bullish mood post-match.

“We started well and our intensity was pretty good. It was the sort of performance we needed,” said Jones.

"Scotland were confident, they came down here with high expectations and we needed to play well.

"I was really pleased with our effort and now the focus is on the Grand Slam next weekend. The exciting thing is that we are only just starting.

“We are one year into a four-year project and we will only get better."

England, whose previous highest score against the Scots was their 43-3 win in 2001, will now seek to complete back to back grand slams in Dublin next Saturday.
