The 35-year-old said that the French language barrier has prevented top quality southern hemisphere coaches - such as Schmidt, Eddie Jones and Warren Gatland - from taking the reigns of the French national side.

Les Bleus are enduring a turbulent period under the guidance of current head coach Jacques Brunel, who has lost the faith of his players who are reportedly plotting a revolt against him following an extremely poor run of results.

Steve Borthwick, the The Red Rose's forwards coach, is expected to voice the English concerns in the customary pre-match meeting with the officials, with England anxious that France's desire to stop their free-flowing offense will see Les Bleus resort to sly tactics, which include delaying the line-out formation and resetting scrums.

The French were rocking but responded well, with Damian Penaud crossing in the corner to keep their hopes alive.

"Vunipola picked up the injury during England's win against France on Sunday and is expected to be out for 10 weeks".

While England will pose an altogether tougher examination - they have beaten Wales five times on the bounce in Six Nations action - Navidi and company know they can make history and stay on a Grand Slam course by winning at the Principality Stadium.

"Things are in our own hands, with two big home games to come (against England and Ireland)".

And another added: "No way back for France now with Jonny May in this form".

The film was later adapted into a Broadway musical just a year ago where it was nominated for three Tony awards. Perhaps this is in response to how a lot of adults brushed off the original Frozen released in 2013.

Liverpool attack is impossible to defend against, insists Milner
The Reds have a game in hand, but their next league outing is a daunting trip to face in-form Manchester United at Old Trafford. At the end of January, Jurgen Klopp's side had the chance to go seven points clear at the top of the table.

England found a formula that worked inside the opening two minutes and kept utilising grubber kicks to devastating effect. May scored two more tries before Penaud reduced the deficit to 23-8.

"Their kicking game was world-class", said fullback Thomas Ramos, who only came on for the second half, where France limited the damage after reaching the interval 30-8 down.

Farrell's conversion hit the post but England were 16-3 up.

And May completed his hat-trick as he again raced onto a kick, this time delivered by Chris Ashton once Parra misjudged a high ball.

With Henry Slade's try on the stroke of half-time, England had already secured a bonus point.

Guirado was then penalized for not rolling away in a ruck and Owen Farrell kicked England 8-0 ahead in a shower. Farrell kicked an additional 14 points.

A frantic start to the second half saw three tries scored in the space of seven, with N'Diaye and the influential Bourdon scoring for France and Cleall grabbing her second try for the Red Roses.
