Twickenham - England coach Eddie Jones said the Grand Slam is "there for us to take" after his Six Nations leaders staved off a late Wales rally for a 25-21 win at Twickenham on Saturday.

Victory made it four wins out of four for England under the Australian and preserved their lead at the top of the table.

England, who last won the Six Nations in 2011, will be crowned champions with a round to spare if Scotland beat France in Edinburgh on Sunday.

Regardless, England will take the title and a first Grand Slam since their World Cup-winning year of 2003 -- when Jones was coaching beaten finalists Australia -- with victory away to France on March 19.

"The Grand Slam is there for us to take," said Jones. "We can't wait to get to Paris and to do the business."
