France were awarded a penalty try early in the second-half, a converted Jonny May try for England making for a frenetic finish before Lionel Beauxis landed a late penalty to wrap the game up.

It was Joe Dunleavy's first 6 Nations start for his country, and the Letterkenny man put in a solid performance to help his team to victory.
