BBC Sport - Six Nations 2015: Stuart Lancaster salutes 'courageous' England

'England were courageous'

England head coach Stuart Lancaster describes England's 55-35 victory over France which left them agonisingly close to the Six Nations title as "one of the most courageous performances" he's seen.

Ireland's victory over Scotland earlier in the day meant that England had to win by 26 points or more at Twickenham, but despite running in seven tries they came just six points short of their target in a game which Lancaster believes will go down as "one of the great games of rugby".

Man of the match Ben Youngs says that the side are "devastated" but they are looking forward to a big World Cup campaign.
