(W) England v France at Twickenham

🏉 Twickenham Stadium is the place to be as England take on France in a Grand Slam decider at the 2023 TikTok Women’s Six Nations!  

NEWSFLASH: The 2023 Women’s Six Nations are a wrap and England are Gland Slam winners!  Red Roses v France tickets were snapped up in huge numbers with a world-record crowd watching at Twickenham Stadium.  Check out our RUGBY UNION section here for more matches in the capital including Saracens, Harlequins and Wasps in Premier 15s action. 

CONGRATULATIONS to the Red Roses who beat France 38-33 in front of a crowd of over 58,000 at the home of England rugby, a record for a women’s match.  The Red Roses were irresistible in the first forty minutes – Abby Dow opening the scoring with a superb try – building up a 33-0 lead by half-time.  Les Bleues fought back admirably in the second-half with four tries, but the match finished 38-31 in favour of the hosts.  Sadia Kabeya was named player of the match in a winning finale which marked Simon Middleton’s last game as England head coach.

The waiting is over for England v France in this year’s Women’s Six Nations, which marks the first standalone Red Roses fixture at the home of England Rugby.  Red Roses v France tickets are selling fast with a crowd of 50,000+ already guaranteed.

It was so near yet so far for the Red Roses who lost a nail-biting Rugby World Cup final 34-31 to New Zealand at a sold-out Eden Park last November.  But England have put their Aukland upset behind them with four straight wins in their 2023 Six Nations campaign, which marks the start of a long road to the 2025 Rugby World Cup to be hosted on home shores.

England are the defending Women’s Six Nations champions and the destination of the 2023 title will be decided by this afternoon’s clash with fierce rivals France who have also won all their matches in the tournament so far. 

In the lead up to the match, Red Roses head coach Simon Middleton commented:

“We’re really excited and looking forward to Saturday’s match against France in what will be another landmark moment in the women’s game.

“We’ve had some entertaining and tight battles with France over a long period of time and this one will be no different.  Both teams have had strong Six Nations campaigns off the back of presenting different game plans from what we have seen before. 

“France will also be relishing the challenge and David Ortiz, Gaëlle Mignot and their team will have prepared their players well. 

“I think it’s only fitting at this point to also recognise and pay tribute to Jessy Trémoulière, one of the greats of the game, as she calls time on her international playing career.  She will be missed, for sure. 

“Playing in front of a record crowd is a huge marker of where the game is at.  It’s huge testament to the hard work of many people at the RFU and it bodes extremely well building up to the 2025 World Cup.”
