However, they ultimately suffered a 32-15 defeat, leaving them out of contention for the Six Nations title.

The French, meanwhile, have been in fantastic form this year and know victory will see them lift the Six Nations for the first time since 2010, regardless of what second-placed Ireland do against Scotland.

But Eddie Jones supported his English team to create the surprise.

He said: “One thing I know is that there isn’t a team in the world or in the history of the game that doesn’t have a chink in their armour.

“Every team has a flaw. It’s your ability to find and expose that flaw that will be key on Saturday.
