Fixtures and latest team news ahead of France clash

England resume their 2019 Six Nations campaign today with the visit of France to Twickenham.

In World Cup year, Eddie Jones’ men need a successful Six Nations as the Australian looks to finalise plans for rugby’s showpiece event in Japan.

The Six Nations is the last chance England will have to test themselves in a competition environment. It started perfectly last week with victory over Ireland in Dublin.

Last year England finished a disappointing fifth – a considerable fall from grace having previously won back-to-back Six Nations titles.

The pressure is now on Jones to deliver, not only Six Nations success, but, ultimately, World Cup glory.
