Six Nations Preview

France VS England 

Following their defeat to Scotland a fortnight ago, England will be looking to take revenge against France in order for themselves to with-hold any chances of them keeping the six nations trophy.

Watson has already stated that the bonus point has not been discussed, despite the immense pressure on Eddie jones side to secure all points up for grabs.

Following the injury to skipper, Dylan Hartley, Farrell looks set to captain the side during Saturdays fixture with Jamie George set to come in as the replacement hooker.

Jacques Brunel’s side are looking to continue their recent form following their win over Italy. Before their most recent fixture, they had been robbed by Irelands last minute kick and were within a converted try away from beating Scotland. Closer than England were able to get.

The last time the two teams clashed, England came out on tops, scraping a 19-16 win at twickenham. Last year Eddie Jones needed to bring his cavalry off of the bench, in order to secure his 15th successive test victory.
