Luther Burrell is refusing to worry about results elsewhere as England prepare for a Six Nations decider against France on Saturday.

That clash at Twickenham will kick off at 5pm, meaning Stuart Lancaster’s side will know what they need to do to take the title.

Wales are in Italy for the early game before Ireland’s showdown with Scotland takes place at 2.30pm.

England Ireland and Wales are all locked on six points, with Burrell and Co currently boasting the best points difference.

And the Saints centre said: “It comes down to us hitting the ground running.

“We need to convert the opportunities we had against Scotland into points.

We’ve got to focus on ourselves and we can’t think about what happens outside of that

“The French team will come to Twickenham full of pride, full of passion.

“We’ve got to focus on ourselves and we can’t think about what happens outside of that.

“It’s going to come down to us putting in the performance and putting the sword down on the French team who are going to come with their A game.”

Tries from Jonathan Joseph, George Ford and Jack Nowell helped England see off Scotland 25-15 last weekend.

And despite the fact they missed a few more chances to score in that Twickenham encounter, Burrell was happy with the success.

“To beat them by the margin we did, I don’t think many teams have done that this season,” he said.

“We are frustrated that we didn’t take some chances, but we managed to keep them out for that second half and it was a tough performance from us.

“We’ve got a huge weekend ahead now.”
