Worrying French display from Ireland’s point of view or encouraging England one from Wales’ and Australia’s (Fiji’s too)? More the latter - despite selecting close to his full XV, be it discipline, lineout throwing or basic defensive structure, Stu Lancaster has a lot to do - the late rally did little to save face and they were lucky to keep 15 on the park throughout. There was French pack power from Picamoles and fancy footwork by Huget for his try.
