“Why aren’t you wealthy if you’re so intelligent?” is a question that may be directed towards England as the country experiences an influx of optimism following Ireland’s triumph at Twickenham. Winning in France is a prime example of displaying success and the victory brings England’s total wins for the year under Steve Borthwick to 4, surprising many who had low expectations for the team.

Based on the previous outcome, the style of play in the past two matches has brought a sense of optimism to Borthwick and England supporters unlike any other time in recent years. However, the team has experienced numerous disappointments in the last twenty years; today’s performance will determine if this new approach is worth pursuing.

Regarding experiments, it seems that France has decided to handle the absence of Dupont and Ntamack by continuously trying out new backs in hopes of finding a successful combination. This strategy proved somewhat successful last week against Wales, thanks in large part to the forwards who had a significant physical advantage. However, they are not expected to have such an easy time against a revitalized England pack today. Nevertheless, their speedy and evolving backline still has the potential to challenge the still-developing defense of the visiting team.
