England 16-20 France rugby LIVE SCORE: Six Nations latest as stunning Penaud try remains the difference

ENGLAND are hoping for another late show as they take on France at Twickenham.

The Red Rose beat the French in extra time in December following a last minute try from Luke Cowan-Dickie, and they'll need a repeat performance today.

Antoine Dupont gave Les Bleus the lead at Twickenham inside two minutes before Anthony Watson crossed the line for England.

But a brilliant try from Damien Penaud has put the French in front heading into the latter stages.
