Farrell and forwards coach Graham Rowntree also assess the "massive impact" on the game made by former captain Lewis Moody, who announced his retirement this week.

Meanwhile Alex Corbisiero is braced to meet a new challenge head-on, while Charlie Hodgson – who played there in 2006 – believes England have taken a step forward with each game and are creating opportunities, as does France boss Philippe Saint Andre.

England Women were 33-0 winners against Wales at Twickenham and player Rowena Burnfield wants to keep the standards high against the last side to beat them when they face France at the Stade Charlety.

We also hear from young Charlie Walker, the centre who will move straight from the Under 20 six nations to making his debut for England Sevens in Hong Kong and Tokyo at the end of the month.

On the home front, the semi finals of the LV= Cup take place this weekend. On Sunday, Northampton Saints take on the Scarlets and on Friday night Bath Rugby take on Leicester Tigers at the Rec, where former Tiger Sam Vesty is looking forward to facing his old club.
