France beat England 22-16 in Six Nations

After a frustrating start to the Six Nations, France claimed a rare victory over England that boosted the morale of Jacques Brunel's men who now believe they are a force to be reckoned with again.

Despite Jones's desire to bring more power to his line-up, there is not expected to be a way back just yet for Leicester centre Manu Tuilagi.

"We're going to have to save the best for last, and that's what it's going to take to win everything next week", said Best.

"It's very disappointing because we wanted to win the title three years in a row but we haven't done that".

Having rued an inspired Scottish display at Murrayfield last weekend, English fans will have been praying for a second-half recovery but had to watch through their fingers as Murray was dragged over the line to edge Ireland closer to the all-important bonus point.

France got the better of England in this respect, with openside flanker Camara winning some key penalties while also showing his athleticism and strong ball-carrying ability in open play.

The Scots are now ranked fifth in the world after a run of good form that saw them upset visiting England 25-13 recently in the Six Nations competition. "I'm sure they will be gunning for us".

"It's a nice victory but we need to think about next week to get a good result in Cardiff and show this was not a one-time thing". "We were beaten at the breakdown, we gave away too many penalties, and when we had the momentum we didn't score, whereas they did". Just last month they had gone eight matches without a win.

Coach Joe Schmidt said the fact the championship was in the bag would not cause his team to relax.

St Patrick's Day simply can't come soon enough for Ireland. "On both occasions, we were there".

Now the shoe will be on the other foot, with England at home on the final day endeavouring to atone for two away defeats and in the process deny their visitors a Grand Slam on their home patch, as Ireland did to England in 2001, 2011 and past year.

"Everyone knows the size of the challenge".

Another missed Sexton penalty raised questions over Ireland's decision to go for the posts rather than touch with 15 minutes left, but replacement Cronin crossed after a driving maul to further focus English minds in Paris and keep their Grand Slam hopes alive.

Ireland boss Schmidt expects Eddie Jones' frustrated side to be hell-bent on venting some fury at Twickenham on Saturday however. Scotland had its chances but wasn't as accurate, and butchered two tries, probably three.

"We won thanks to our defence", said scrumhalf Maxime Machenaud, who converted his four penalties.
