- Group A: England 42-18 France
- Wingers each score twice in seven-try victory
It is all going to precisely to plan for England at the World Cup so far. Two games, two wins and barring what would be the greatest upset of all-time against Greece next week, top spot in Group A and a purported easier route to next month’s final is almost secure.
While last Saturday’s win over Samoa was near-perfect, this victory against a gallant French side was not without moments of concern for the ultra-demanding Shaun Wane. After half an hour, the prospect of another convincing win was firmly on the cards, with England leading 18-0 and superb value for it.
