Welcome to the live dedicated to the match between England and France, as part of the fourth day of the Six Nations Tournament.
What is it about ? From the fourth meeting of the XV of France in the 2023 edition of the Six Nations Tournament. After a painful inaugural victory against Italy, then a rout in Ireland, the Blues returned to success against Scotland without however dispelling doubts. Winning against England is imperative to keep a hope of retaining their title. Something to give even more flavor to this crunch, “always a special match”, according to French second-line Paul Willemse. Especially since the French have been waiting for eighteen years for a victory on English soil in the competition.
