England narrowly missed out on securing an opening day win in the RBS 6 Nations by the tightest of margins.

Facing a tough test in the Stade de France, last year's runners-up got off to a terrible start, conceding a try in just 35 seconds.

Despite then trailing 16-3 at one point in the first half, the team rallied to lead 24-19 with just three minutes to go.

However, a last gasp French try and conversion sealed the narrowest of victories for the hosts.
