With Ireland victorious against Scotland in Dublin, the winners of the 2022 Guinness Six Nations are still to be decided as the title goes down to the final game on Super Saturday.
France know that only a win in Paris will seal a historic Grand Slam victory, but Ireland are still in with a chance should England do them a favour by getting a result in Le Crunch.
Andy Farrell’s men ran home four tries as they secured the Triple Crown, giving them a 26-5 bonus-point victory.
It means Ireland take the maximum five points, putting them on 21 points from their five games.
As a result, nothing but a win will do for France if they are to secure their first Championship since 2010.
Prior to the start of Round 5, there had been a whole range of permutations had France lost to England but Conor Murray’s late try means that Fabien Galthié’s men simply must win.
In the unlikely event that France score four tries in a draw with England, the try-bonus point would see them finish level with Farrell’s side which would still see Ireland claim the title on points difference.
The top two spots are the only ones that are left to be decided in the 2022 Guinness Six Nations Championship, with England all but confirmed in third place ahead of Scotland barring a 46-point defeat for Eddie Jones’ men.
Wales’ defeat to Italy also means that Wayne Pivac’s men will finish fifth on seven points, and Italy sixth with four.
