England started the defence of their Women’s Six Nations title with a hard-fought win over France in a gripping encounter in Pau.

Abby Dow and Vicky Fleetwood scored tries as the Red Roses dominated early on, but Laure Sansus crossed to start a France fightback before the break.

The second half was evenly contested until Emily Scarratt raced clear for a fine solo try that she also converted.

Jessy Tremouliere’s penalty reduced the gap but England held on.

Although victory was England’s fifth in a row over France, it was their first in France in the Six Nations since 2012.
