However, they ultimately went down to a 32-15 defeat, leaving them out of the running for the Six Nations title.

The French meanwhile have been in fantastic form this year and know victory will see them win the Six Nations for the first time since 2010, regardless of what second placed Ireland do against Scotland.

But Eddie Jones has backed his England side to spring a surprise.

He said: “One thing I know is that there’s not a team in the world or in the history of the game that does not have a chink in their armour.

“Every team has a chink. It is your ability to find and expose that chink which is going to be the key on Saturday.”
