RBS 6 NATIONS: France v England: Analysis
IT WAS a game which seemed to tight to call before the kick-off - and no-one could have possibly predicted the see-saw affair that transpired.
From France's opening try just 35 seconds into the match, for the first 30 minutes it seemed Les Blues would walk away with it.
However, what seemed like an unassailable 16-3 lead was soon pegged back by England, who grew in confidence and eventually took the lead in the second half after a try by debutant Luther Burrell.
However, the 24-19 lead proved too slender, and a late, late try and conversion for France secured a 26-24 win for the home side.
