May joins England's top five try scorers

Jonny May’s individual tries against France moved him into the top five all-time leading try scorers for England.

Leicester Tigers wing May has 53 caps after making his debut on England’s summer tour of Argentina in 2013 and his two scores on Sunday took him to 29 international tries in total.

England were trailing 24-0 when May grabbed his opening score, receiving the ball on the French 10-metre line, chipping ahead and winning the chase to the touch down.

His second was another individual display, collecting the ball just inside the France half before using his pace to cut inside and sear through their defence to dive over behind the posts.

That score moved May ahead of Jason Robinson (28) on the list of England’s leading try scorers.

The four men ahead of him now are Jeremy Guscott (30), Will Greenwood and Ben Cohen (31) and Tigers legend Rory Underwood who still holds the record with 49 tries.
