This match is the last of the three to kick off on the final Six Nations Super Saturday at the Stade de France in Paris. England stands between France and a Six Nations Grand Slam in Paris on Super Saturday. They have sprung a surprise in their bid to deny France the Grand Slam by naming Freddie Steward on the wing and George Furbank at full-back for the climax to the tournament. England can now only finish as high as third in this year’s championship or end up with back-to-back fifth-place finishes, if they lose to France.

On the other hand, a win seals the title and Grand Slam for France, but a loss could hand glory to Ireland. France’s remarkable consistency with selection has seen them make just one non-Covid enforced change throughout the entire Six Nations. France is aiming for a first title and Grand Slam since sealing both in 2010. If Ireland fails to beat Scotland, the tournament is already over and France will walk onto the field as champions. Even if Ireland wins against Scotland, France’s destiny remains in their hands.

France vs England: History and Results
France and England have contested a total of 108 rugby test matches since their first meeting in 1906. England has won 60 of those matches, whilst France has won 41 matches. There have also been seven drawn matches between the two nations.
Who will win?
England is looking to spoil France’s Grand Slam party, but cannot win the title themselves, since they have already lost two of their four games. But championship success is built on managing to prevail in tough situations and how Les Bleus will relish the chance to seal a Grand Slam against England of all teams. Yes, England will head to Paris with pride at stake but without a chance of lifting the trophy.
Marshaled by World player of the year Antoine Dupont who leads the side from scrum-half, a first Grand Slam for 12 years surely beckons. We have been here before. France has been here before. And these situations do not always swing their way. However, I predict that France will win the match by 10 points. What do you think? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
