Proud Eddie Jones felt England’s dominant scrum deserved more after defeat in Six Nations Ireland match

Follow live coverage as France beat England 25-13 in the finale of the Six Nations in Paris to win the Grand Slam and lift the championship trophy for the first time in 12 years.

Fabien Galthie’s side made history as they claimed a Grand Slam and a first championship title since 2010. Victory over England achieved both those goals but the pressure was on, as any other result would have seen Ireland snatch the title after they beat Scotland earlier in the day.

Tries from Gael Fickou, Francois Cros and Antoine Dupont secured the title for Les Bleus in front of a raucous crowd at the Stade de France.

Follow all the latest reaction from the Stade de France:

Eddie Jones on France

“At the moment they are ahead and deserved Grand Slam champions but that can change quickly. The World Cup is 14 months away. We’ve got 11 tests. In that time we need to improve our breakdown work and our ability to finish the chances that we create. If we do that, the difference [between England and France] will be absolutely marginal.”

Eddie Jones on England’s defeat

“There were a couple of big moments in the game. The try before half-time gave France a bit of breathing space and then we had Dombrandt held up over the line. That would have made the game very, very interesting. “

On if he is still sure that he is the right man to coach England: “That’s not a question I need to answer. I just do my job. It’s a question for other people to answer. I’m not even thinking about that.”

Eddie Jones reacts to England’s defeat

“France are deserved champions of the Six Nations They are the best team. I was pleased with the spirit and purpose we played with - we created enough opportunities to win the game but we weren’t clinical enough. That was the story of our Six Nations a bit.

“It’s a great benchmark game for us. We are not far away but we are far away. We’ve got a lot of good young players coming through.”
