Two of the three teams locked on 10 points from three games go head to head with England hosting France at Twickenham in the later afternoon fixture on Saturday. A win for either side will see them go level on points with top of the table Ireland who do not play until Sunday.
Neither team has looked as fluent as Ireland but have shown a willingness to grind out results. Even if they do not manage to win the 2023 Six Nations, they will be looking for improvement across the competition with their focus sure to switch to the 2023 World Cup which takes place in the Autumn.
England vs France Preview
After the turmoil of sacking Eddie Jones at the end of 2022 and installing Steve Borthwick as his replacement so near to the start of the 2023 Six Nations, it was perhaps no surprise to see England start with a defeat at home to Scotland. However, since then, they have bounced back with a 31-14 win over Italy at Twickenham followed by a gritty 20-10 win over the bridge in Cardiff against Wales.
A win against the 2022 Six Nations Champions would be quite the statement and turnaround for England who will start captain Owen Farrell on the bench with Marcus Smith back at number 10.
France have been remarkably consistent with their attack and defence in the tournament so far after scoring 32 points twice and 29 points once. At the other end of the pitch they have conceded 21 points, 19 points and 24 points. The visitors come to Twickenham looking for their first Six Nations win at this venue since 2005.
