  1. Post update

    And we'll do it all again next weekend at Exeter. France will be out for revenge next weekend.

    That's all from me today.

    Head over to our Rugby Union pages shortly for a full report.

  2. Full-time

    France 10-20 England

    A famous victory for the Red Roses! They win in France for the first time in seven years.

    That is a marker well and truly laid down before next year's Six Nations.

  3. Post update

    France 10-20 England

    Knock-on! That should be that. England are going to earn a big, big win in France.

  4. Post update

    France 10-20 England

    One last chance for France. They win a penalty at the scrum but they need two scores with 30 seconds left.

  5. Post update

    France 10-20 England

    France have to try something different and they go for an enterprising kick but it trickles dead. Scrum to England. 90 seconds left.

  6. Post update

    France 10-20 England

    England are penalised but the ball is well in France territory. The home fans still just about believe but it's going to take something very special now.

  7. Post update

    France 10-20 England

    Four minutes to go. England are closing in on their first away win in France since 2012.

  8. Post update

    France 10-20 England

    Another French fumble. These could prove very costly for the hosts. England have the ball back with six minutes to go.

  9. Penalty - France 10-20 England

    Emily Scarratt

    No mistake from world player of the year Emily Scarratt. That's her fourth successful kick from four today.

    France now have to score twice in the final eight minutes.

  10. Post update

    France 10-17 England

    France offside! Right in front of the posts. The home crowd doesn't like this either.

    Emily Scarratt has straight-forward kick to extend England's lead...

  11. Post update

    France 10-17 England

    Sarah Hunter pounds into contact after the scrum. She's chasing a hat-trick. Can England come away with points here?

  12. Post update

    France 10-17 England

    The brass band continues to play but it's England with the chance for points now. They have a scrum inside the French 22. The Red Roses are still down to 14 remember.

  13. Post update

    France 10-17 England

    Harlequins' Emily Scott is on at inside centre for England.

  14. Post update

    France 10-17 England

    Those cheers turn to boos from the home fans. They think France have won a turnover on halfway but the French player at the bottom of the ruck is deemed to have not been supporting her own weight.

  15. Post update

    France 10-17 England

    The noise in this place now...

  16. Try - France 8-17 England

    Camille Boudaud

    We have a big finish on our hands.

    Eventually France break through the England defence out near the touch line.

    Jessy Tremouliere brilliantly kicks the extras too. There are just seven minutes left with 15 minutes to play.

  17. Post update

    France 3-17 England

    The scrum holds firm but France are pounding at the try-line through the forwards. England are holding firm for now...

  18. Post update

    France 3-17 England

    England make a host of changes in the pack for this crucial scrum. Natasha Hunt is on at scrum-half too.

    This is a big moment.

  19. Post update

    France 3-17 England

    Big pressure on England now with only 14 players on the field. French have a scrum five metres out...

  20. Sin-bin - Marlie Packer

    France 3-17 England

    Referee Joy Neville loses patience with England after this latest infringement. "Four penalties in a row" she says.

    Marlie Packer is sent to the sin bin.
