France’s loss to England in the U20 Six Nations has been marred by a double red card.
A brain explosion from replacement lock Pierre-Henri Azagoh and replacement prop Hassane Kolingar led to two red cards after a dangerous tip tackle on England’s Fraser Dingwall, lifting the centre off the ground as he bridged over a ruck before sending him head first into the turf.

With Les Bleus down to 13 men, England managed to hold on for a 22-6 win.
The win moves England level with France at the top of the competition table with just one fixture remaining each, and ends France’s hopes for a Grand Slam.
