England vs Italy result: Bonus-point victory puts Eddie Jones’s side in pole position to win Six Nations title

 (Independent) (Independent)

England secured a hard-fought bonus point in their 34-5 victory over Italy that puts them top of the Six Nations table and in pole position to claim the Championship, with Ireland needed a bonus-point win or a seven-point victory over France in the final game of the tournament to beat them to the title.

France can still secure the title themselves, although Les Bleus will have to defeat Ireland by 31 points if they are to emerge victorious with the Six Nations in their grasp.
