Cool cheers. Having seen the follow up I can see how they might call that accidental offside.

This is not a vintage france

I  was getting a little carried away watching those breaks and runs past poor Jack.

But the scramble  / cover defence Is working fine

Getting drawn too far up by the French depth I think.

England are managing.

Nice little crawl from the Nowellapiller but lol for nothing.

I still feel this game is edging France's way. The commentators slamming England for not getting points all seem sure england have lost if I am watching the same game they are.

If we end this half in front that's good going as I'd say France has bossed it.

Its like England v Wales and Ireland in the first half. Should have been out of sight!

Well i said France would like to spoil England's Grand Slam and they are doing it.

England 5 points a head at half time. ..but if you look at the last 2/3 games England have been infront at half time, but stuggled to stay infront at full time.

Come on England wake up.
