Six Nations: this was England's long road to the title

Everything started back in February 1 with a tight setback and a fall to France 24-17 at the Stade de France in Paris and ended on October 31, after a long wait, with a great victory over Italy in Rome and a head-to-head fight for the Six Nations crown with Les Bleus and Ireland.

On February 1, England traveled to France for their first round match, which ended in a 24-17 loss. Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack were intractable during that day and were the architects of the French victory over La Rosa. The tries for the locals were scored by Rattez and Ollivon (2), while May won twice the ingoal for the visit.

At the Stade de France, the Gauls beat La Rosa to start the tournament with a smile.

But Jones’s men rallied and the following weekend they defeated Scotland by a tight 13 to 5 under adverse weather conditions in Murrayfield. The hero of the day was Ellis Genge, who came off the bench and scored the only try for England to reclaim the Calcutta Cup for the first time in three years.
