Text size Aa Aa

England won the Six Nations Grand Slam for the first time in 13 years on Saturday after a thrilling final victory against France at the Stade de France.

Having already assured themselves of their Six nations title in 11 years last weekend – a win against the French in Paris was the only thing missing to end England’s clean sweep drought.

England ran in three tries from Danny Care, Dan Cole and Anthony Watson while Owen Farrell hit 16 points with the boot as Eddie Jones’ men won through 31-21.

France finished the tournament in fifth place with Wales, who thrashed Italy 67-14 earlier in the day, second. Ireland ended the campaign third having beating fourth-placed Scotland in their final match at the Aviva Stadium.

Italy came home last.
