He said: “One thing I know is that there is no team in the world or in the history of the game that has no flaws in its armor.

“Every team has goals. It’s your ability to find and expose those gaps that will be key on Saturday.”

what they said

French director Fabian Galti He warned his side not to underestimate England.

“There’s an overall image of ‘Crunch’,” he said. “They[England]are the people who invented rugby.”

“Their federation is, along with South Africa, the federation with the most registered players.

“At Twickenham and the league, every match is played hard, no matter the stake.

“There is only one world champion team in the North: England.

“These are the hapless finalists of 2019. They are one of the four big players in world rugby. But now they are with France.”

England manager Eddie Jones Despite the risk that his team could finish fifth in the Six Nations, he promised victory in Paris.

“We’re going to have a good win against France,” he said.

“We have beaten France in the last two matches, so we know quite well how to play against France.

“We want to take it to them.

For them to play for a grand slam it’s in their heads and the only way we can make it a little more vivid in their heads is to play hard enough that we put them on their hind feet.”
