England Beat France In Paris Thriller

March 11, 2012 by staff 

England Beat France In Paris Thriller, England’s surprise 24-22 Six Nations victory over France in Paris will do Stuart Lancaster no harm in his bid to win the job as coach but he’s happy to heap praise on his players.

The 42-year-old had just seen his inexperienced side become the first team since their predecessors in 2008 to beat France in a Six Nations match at the Stade de France.

However, Lancaster preferred to acknowledge his players rather than what it might mean for his prospects of landing the coaching job full-time.

“It’s not about me, it’s about the team,” said Lancaster, whose side have won three out of their four matches and stand an outside chance of the title if they beat Ireland next weekend and France beat unbeaten Wales.

“We lacked experience in terms of caps but we had great self-belief and that was clear from how we played out there.

“It reflected what we are building towards. We are learning things from match to match but we are learning fast.”
