England won the Six Nations after France beat Ireland on a thrilling final day of the delayed tournament.

Eddie Jones’ side had claimed a bonus-point win against Italy earlier on Saturday but faced a tense wait as both teams in the day’s final fixture attempted to take the title.

England’s first title since 2017 was confirmed by France’s 35-27 victory.

Ireland, who would have taken the crown if they had beaten France by six points or more, led 10-7 at one point.

The hosts took control to win in Paris but needed a bonus point and a winning margin of 31 points or more to claim the Six Nations themselves.

But they were unable to win by a large enough margin as England took the title on points difference.

England’s victory comes at the end of the longest Six Nations in history after the tournament was suspended in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
