- England six points clear with one match to play
- France’s 13-13 draw in Glasgow takes them out of title race
England coach Simon Middleton has paid tribute to his players after they retained their Women’s Six Nations title after chief rivals France were held to a 13-13 draw by Scotland.
With England due to face Italy next week, France needed a win in Glasgow to take the title race to the final round of games next weekend but they had their 10-point lead reeled in after the wing Rachel Shankland crossed in the 73rd minute. Helen Nelson’s conversion meant the match finished level as Scotland avoided defeat for the first time in three rounds of a tournament that has been interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. England are now six points clear at the top of the table and cannot be caught, with their final match in Italy on Sunday.
