Englands rugby team will be facing France at Twickenham on sunday, 6 December 2020.

Yeah okay well Jonathan Joseph has been injured. So England has to replace him. They opted for Wing  Anthony Watson in Sunday’s autumn nation’s cup at Twickenham at England vs France match.  The midfield and the forward pack were okay though. They just won against wales at a 24-13 gap. In this match, England announces two players back to the bench side. It’s Max Malns who plays in the fullback position and Joe Marchant, playing in the centre position.

“We are looking forward to this final, playing France and have another chance to win the trophy”- Jones said in this regard.

Autumns nations cup is the rugby reunion frame participating 8 countries with 6 of them are from 6 nations championship (England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France, Italy) including Fiji and Georgia. Japan isn’t participating this year due to travel restrictions due to covid 19.

England’s last defeat was against France, which was a fledge team. It happened at the very start of the 2020 six nations competition.

But right now the situation is different. France’s team is facing a backlash. Fabien Galthic has been bound to come to a decision with an unfamiliar team.  It’s because of an agreement he made with 14 players team.  The pact was the players could only play the three games.
