France rarely threatened in the first half as England took a commanding 20-0 lead at the break.

Sam Tomkins and Tom Briscoe ran in two tries each, with Kevin Sinfield also getting a try.

Kane Bentley got France off the mark in the second half scoring the visitors' only try.

The result bodes well for England, who meet France again next week in the final of the Autumn series.
