England have finally shaken off their losing streak in the Six Nations Chamionship, with an amazing 34-10 victory over France.

Mark Cueto, Riki Flutey, Delon Armitage and Joe Worsley all crossed in the first half of the match at Twickenham, before Flutey added his second.

France improved in the second half and scored through Dimitri Szarzewski and Julien Malzieu, but the game was won.

The result lifts England to third in the table, behind Ireland and Wales.

Martin Johnson's side will take on Scotland next Saturday.
