Eddie Jones’ England side travel to Paris on Saturday looking to secure their first Grand Slam title since 2003. It is a big ask to get a win against France in Paris, but the Red Rose have learned from past mistakes, and will not count their chickens before they hatch.

Les Bleus have ran out of steam in this tournament, and after narrow wins against Italy and Ireland, they succumbed to defeats away to Wales and Scotland.

Nonetheless, should they overcome the English, this Championship will be seen as a success for Guy Noves and Co.

The head coach has named a strong side to give them the very best chance of causing an upset.

Francois Trinh-Duc remains at out-half to lead an exciting back line, which includes Wesley Fofana on the wing.

Can this France side spoil England’s party and remain unbeaten at home this year?
