France Secure Six Nations

Saturday, March 17, 2007

Elvis Vermeulen scored a last-gasp try to earn France their fourth RBS 6 Nations Championship title in six years - barring an England miracle in Cardiff.
Knowing they needed to win by 24 points to overtake the Irish in the title race, Les Bleus scored six tries, two in the first half and four in the second - the last nailed by Vermeuelen deep into injury time.
Scotland put up a brave fight, scoring three tries themselves, but they were not able to slow up the French juggernaut.
England now need a mighty victory of 57 points or more over Wales at the Millennium Stadium to deny France the defence of their title.
Ireland had earlier run in eight scores against Italy in Rome on the way to a 51-24 success but two late trys from the Azzurri cut the margin of victory and subsequently made France's task that bit easier.
