England's players ended a successful opening weekend of the 2018 Six Nations in style after they got the chance to celebrate their win over Italy with James Bond actor Daniel Craig.

The encounter with Britain's greatest spy came after England completed their own mission in Rome, with Eddie Jones' men ending their trip to the Stadio Olimpico with a relatively comfortable 46-15 victory over Conor O'Shea's side.
