It's almost time for the final game of the 2024 Six Nations as England take on France in Lyon. Can the Red Rose end their campaign in style and secure the win? Or will Les Bleus continue where they left off last weekend and earn the win?

France vs England 2024 Six Nations is free to watch, and from anywhere in the world by using a VPN, if you're away from home. The match kicks off today at 8pm GMT / 4pm ET / and 7am AEDT on Sunday morning. 

By the time England kick off in Lyon, they will know whether they can still lift the Six Nations title as they need Scotland to defeat Ireland and for Andy Farrell’s side not to pick up a bonus point. Should this outcome have become reality, then it is all to play for. A bonus point win would be enough to win the championship.

England will be without Immanuel Feyi-Waboso, who excelled in the win over Ireland, after he reported his own symptoms of concussion which means there is a start for Elliot Daly on the wing. That is the only change from last weekend which means that match-winner Marcus Smith will start on the bench. 

It's been a mixed tournament for France who were comfortably beaten by Ireland, lucky to escape with a draw against Italy, but showed there is quality in the squad and they can cope without influential captain Antoine Dupont after a confident display against Wales. Fabien Galthie has retained his faith in the young players and has named an unchanged side for the final game of the campaign.
