England v France live stream: How to watch the Autumn Nations Cup match
The Autumn Nations Cup reaches its conclusion this afternoon, with England and France kicking off at 2pm in the final at Twickenham.
It’s ten months since France beat England in Paris in the Six Nations, but it will be a completely different team in blue that lines up for this match.
It will be a real contrast of experience, with England fielding a starting XV with 772 caps while France’s starting team has just 68. Four England players – Ben Youngs (103), Owen Farrell (87), George Ford (71) and Joe Launchbury (68) have as many caps as the entire French XV!
