Late Lydia Thompson try seals England victory over France
Lydia Thompson’s last-minute try saw England beat France 17-15 in Exeter on Saturday.
The boot of Scarratt put the Red Roses in front with two more penalties, but France looked to have won it when Caroline Boujard crossed for a simple try after 67 minutes.
Both sides were reduced to 14 players, with Zoe Aldcroft receiving a yellow card for a neck roll at the breakdown, before England capitalised on a poor clearance kick and set up Thompson to seal the victory.
