How to watch France vs England: TV channel and live stream for Six Nations rugby today

England conclude their 2024 Six Nations campaign with a trip to face France tonight.

Steve Borthwick’s side close Super Saturday in Lyon, with Les Bleus touring around the country while renovation work continues on the Stade de France ahead of this summer’s Paris Olympics.


After an otherwise underwhelming competition to follow their shock run to the World Cup semi-finals in the autumn, England certainly rose to the occasion at Twickenham in round four as they ruined Ireland’s historic bid for successive Grand Slams with Marcus Smith kicking a last-gasp drop goal in a dramatic 23-22 triumph.

The Red Rose men head into the final weekend of action with an outside chance of still snatching a first Six Nations title since 2020, with earlier events between Ireland and Scotland in Dublin set to dictate whether or not there is any real jeopardy to this game.

France also went into round five mathematically still in the title hunt after blowing away Wales in the second half of a 45-24 victory in Cardiff last time out as a number of young players impressed after eight changes from Fabien Galthie, but it would take an extraordinary sequence of events for that to come to pass.
