and live on Freeview channel 276
After five glorious weekends of rugby, we are now down to the final and deciding matches of the TikTok Women’s Six Nations tournament.
England will face France in what is sure to be one of the most fiercely contested matches seen at the competition so far.
Both teams have won all four of their matches with England currently sitting on top spot of the table with a points difference of 248 compared to France’s 116.
The Red Roses last defeat to the French came in the 2018 Six Nations tournament when France stole a 18-17 win in Grenoble.
In their last three meetings, England have beaten the French by just four points or fewer, and Saturday’s match is likely to be yet another tense meet as both nations fight for the 2022 title.
England’s head coach Simon Middleton has said: “It’s probably the toughest game you can play in international rugby at this moment in time - France in France.
“We’ve got to grab hold of the atmosphere as well as the game. We’re in this business to get to these moments and see how good we actually are.”
Scotland currently sit at the bottom of the table with no win to date. They came into the tournament shortly after qualifying for the Rugby World Cup but have been unable to maximise on their momentum from the match against Colombia and are suffering with a points difference of -84.
With all to play for in the final round of this history-making tournament, here is all you need to know ahead of the last weekend of the TikTok Six Nations:
