"When we get back together on Wednesday we'll start the process of how we can get better again".

Wales head coach Warren Gatland made 10 changes for the Stadio Olimpico encounter, handing Six Nations debuts to Leicester wing Jonah Holmes and Wasps flanker Thomas Young, while scrum-half Aled Davies and back-row forward Aaron Wainwright made first Six Nations starts.

Gatland said: 'For us, there is a bigger picture that we were looking at for the first two games (against France and Italy).

England coach Eddie Jones says his team will have to be at its "absolute best" to beat Wales in Cardiff on 23 February. Come and referee a game yourself then you can let us all judge you then. They contest hard at the breakdown.

"It is a hard game when you get points in front because you can get seduced by the scoreboard and you start doing things you wouldn't normally, but we kept our discipline and stuck to the game plan", added the 59-year-old Australian. 'Hopefully we'll go under the radar.

Jones reserved particular praise for May, who took his Test tally to 22 tries in 42 appearances, with two of his scores coming as reward for chasing kicks. Some of the chasing today was outstanding. "He does that pretty well".

Meanwhile Yoann Huget - played out of position at full-back - was substituted at half-time by France coach Jacques Brunel.

Jonny May scored a first-half hat-trick and there were tries for Henry Slade, Owen Farrell and a penalty try as England kept hapless France scoreless in the second half.

England led 30-8 at the interval, with four tries earning a bonus-point victory, but Jones insisted the second-half performance was even better.

"Lots of things can happen in the meantime", said the 65-year-old Frenchman.

France captain Guilhem Guirado, whose side next play Scotland in Paris, said this latest reverse had been particularly damaging.
