England 23-20 France: Maro Itoje’s late try ends Les Bleus Grand Slam hopes in Six Nations thriller

[ad_1]

For England, this is a seismic win as a disappointing campaign nears its end. It appeared to be following a similar script to their defeat in Cardiff a fortnight ago, with their attack ever more confident and incisive, but their discipline and composure letting them down in the second half – especially as they neared the line.

But an opportunistic Itoje finish with a couple of minutes remaining took them from four points behind – where they had spent most of the second half – to three points in front.

They weathered one final France attack to seal a fine victory in a wild ride against a superb side. For France, it was a galling defeat.
