Eddie Jones says Englands celebrations at winning the Six Nations will be muted as they set their sights on a Grand Slam. Scotlands 29-18 win over France at Murrayfield confirmed England as the 2016 champions with one game remaining, a trip to Paris to face the vanquished French next Saturday.Jones was understandably delighted that Englands improvement over the first four games of his reign led to a championship - their first since 2011 - but said the desire remains to complete a clean sweep of wins, something England have not managed since 2003. Winning the title is a fantastic achievement by the team. The squad is still very much the same one from the World Cup, so that squad has changed themselves and the real credit goes to the players, Jones told Sky Sports News HQ.The coaching staff have done a fantastic job. Steve Borthwick and Paul Gustard, the medical staff have all worked well to create an environment for the team to flourish. Jones was all smiles after Englands nervous win over Wales at Twickenham We dont feel like we have done the job yet. We want to be the most dominant team in Europe and to do that we have to beat everyone.Weve still got France in the way and we know they can play some good rugby. But if we are intense enough, play with the intensity we showed against Wales in the first 72 minutes, we should beat them. Jones believes there is still room for England to improve Even our young guys dont know if they will get another chance to win a Grand Slam so they have to take the opportunity with both hands. Its nice to win a trophy - its a nice thing to have but weve just got to keep getting better and better as a team. Scotland beat France to hand England the Six Nations crown Jones also had special praise for former captain Chris Robshaw, who was one of Englands star players across the wins over Scotland, Italy, Ireland and Wales.He said: Hes just been consistently good. Its not only the work he does on the field, its the work he does off it as well.He helps guys with their skills after training and hes been a source of strength for Dylan [Hartley]. Dylan has done really well as captain but Chris has helped him and I am really pleased for him. His status in rugby has been retrieved and hes gone on to become a much better player. Former captain Chris Robshaw earned plaudits from Jones for his performances As for the future, which will see England take on old foes Australia in the summer, Jones added: Once we get through the Grand Slam well start thinking about Australia. They are sure to be well prepared and I think [coach] Michael Cheika will be over here this week having a look. Thats a great contest for us.
