England had a blistering start with 10 points on the board in the first 13 minutes, 5 of which came from what will probably be the try of the tournament by Paul Sachi.
Jonny Wilkinson’s foot was perfect as usual.
England have played an excellent first half and the statistics don’t match the performance. France have the majority of the possession but, tellingly, they also have the most errors.
The only danger is that we see a repeat of last week’s performance against France where England dominated the first half and then capitulated during the second half and lost the match.
The score at half time was 13-7 to England.
The final score was 24-13 to England. It looked a bit dubious for a little while but England outplayed France.
