England sneak home in France - can the U20s do better?

England won their fifth successive Six Nations last night, completing their fourth Grand Slam in five years - but they had a real fright on the way. In dreadful weather conditions a Kay McLean penalty early in the second half put them 11-3 ahead, but a few minutes later an error in their previously faultless defence allowed Celine Alliament in for a try, which was converted to reduce the lead to a single point. Memories of England's last Six Nations defeat in Wales last season were revived when Aurélie Bailon then had a penalty in the final seconds - but this time it just fell short. Full report on ScrumQueens.

This means that on Sunday England U20s have a chance to show the senior squad how its really done - and what is more Sasha says that the game should be available via a live Webcast from the French Rugby Union's website. The direct address is Its a bit fiddly - you have to log in, but the password etc. is on the page - and the French do not always deliver on their promises to show games! However on the same site you can watch several previous French women's internationals from this season, including their second game against Canada, plus their games against Ireland and Italy. Take a look - the Ireland game in particular is pretty good.

Elsewhere Ireland beat Scotland (see ScrumQueens for a report), but they too were not helped by the weather and only ran out winners by 15-3. So, with one game to go, the 2010 Six Nations looks like this:
