It was the perfect warm-up ahead of the two senior teams meeting in a crucial game for England at Twickenham tomorrow evening - with Joe Marchant and George Perkins running in tries for the home nation.

France were on top in the first-half and led 11-9 at the break, but England scored a penalty to take a slim lead, and put the result beyond doubt with two tries in the final 15 minutes.

Rory Jennings proved to be a master with the boot, as he kicked 14 points via four penalties and one conversion.
