England win againsrt France.
RBS Six Nations 2012
France 22 v 24 England
England came out of the blocks on fire at the Stade de France today. The French looked sluggish and slow in the first half but finally woke up in the second half.
This game had it all tries, sin bins and of course Alain Rolland doing his bit for referees all over the world. Consistency of penalty = sin bin was abysmal. But hey so what, no matter how much he tried to unsettle England, they marched on.

And when Tom Croft went over for his try, I was off my seat punching the air -Definitely should have been Man of the Match.

Once again the whole team worked their socks off for each other, no 'Prima Donnas' in this squad. Lancaster should be allowed to continue the good work in this role and if enough fans sound their voices at Twickenham next week - hey people power everyone! Are you listening Mother RFU - turn the hearing aid or should I say people link up.
Thank you to everyone players, staff and management you have made this England fan very proud today and very happy. The bottle of Merlot will slip down well tonight :)
FRANCE (9) 22
