The France vs England live stream could have showcased a Six Nations battle for the ages, with both sides going head-to-head for the title. Instead, England will merely be looking to hold on to third place and prevent France from winning the grand slam they clearly deserve.France vs England live stream, date, time, channels

Of course the French will still be treating this game like the final it effectively is for them; a first grand slam since 2010 beckons, and they won't care in the slightest that their opponents can no longer win the championship.
With home advantage, form and momentum all on their side, they go into the France vs England game as clear favourites. They also have winger Damian Penaud back in the starting line-up after Covid kept him out of last weekend's win over Wales. He replaces Yoram Moefana in the backs in France's only change.
England's main objective should be to curtail the indiscipline that cost them against both Scotland and Ireland. In the first game they suffered when Luke Cowan-Dickie was sin-binned late on, while Charlie Ewels' red card early on against Ireland effectively ended that game as a contest, even if England at least put up a fight for 60 minutes.
They make multiple changes for this game, with George Furbank coming in at full-back and Freddie Steward moving to the wing. Sam Underhill replaces the injured Tom Curry in the back row, Nick Isiekwe comes in for the suspended Charlie Ewels and Ben Youngs replaces Harry Randall at scrum-half. Finally, Will Stuart starts at tighthead prop, with Kyle Sinckler on the bench.
Here's how they line up:
France: Jaminet; Penaud, Fickou, Danty, Villiere; Ntamack, Dupont (capt); Baille, Marchand, Atonio, Woki, Willemse, Cros, Alldritt, Jelonch.
Replacements: Mauvaka, Gros, Haouas, Flament, Taofifenua, Cretin, Lucu, Ramos.
England: Furbank; Steward, Marchant, Slade, Nowell; Smith, Youngs; Genge, George, Stuart, Itoje, Isiekwe, Lawes, Underhill, Simmonds.
Replacements:, Marler, Dolly, Sinckler, Chessum, Dombrandt, Randall, Ford, Daly
