England score startling win over England in Six Nations

6:12 am on 16 March 2009

England have scored a startling 34-10 Six Nations rugby win over France at Twickenham running in five tries in the process.

The former Hurricanes player Riki Flutey crossed France's line twice as England turned in their best performance during Martin Johnson's reign as manager.

England even managed to get through a match without having a player sin-binned after a run of 10 yellow cards in their four previous fixtures.

After losses to Wales and Ireland, England had the match all but won by halftime when they led 29-nil.
