Emily Scarratt’s penalty gave England victory over France with the last kick of the game in a breathless encounter at Twickenham.

The Red Roses, who beat their World Cup pool opponents last week, trailed by one point as the clock went red.

A ferocious France dominated the first 60 minutes, until England emptied their bench and World Player of the Year Scarratt took to the field.

Late tries from Poppy Cleall and Ellie Kildunne helped turn the tide.
