Seven moments that mattered

The key moments from the Six Nations Test between France and England in Paris, according to MARK SALTER.

34th second – England's forwards fail to gather the ball and France break away for Yoann Huget to score in the corner and show their intent to run hard at England. Pressure is on immediately.

8th minute – Jonny May goes off with a broken nose and Alex Goode comes on, forcing a rearrangement of the backline. He has a shocker, missing the tackle which allows Huget to score his second try, losing the ball in contact 2m from France's line, and failing to cover Gaël Fickou for the final try.

17th minute – England flanker Tom Wood loses the ball in contact for France No 6 Yannick Nyanga to pick and go; a move which goes down the line, over the defence and into Huget's hands for the second try.

36th minute – Danny Care takes a quick penalty from a ruck infringement, makes 20m and recycles the ball for Mike Brown to cross for his first try in 22 games. It is a seminal moment which would be all in vain.

59th minute – Hooker Tom Youngs come on for Dylan Hartley. He then throws a terrible lineout when England are 21-16 up and on the France 5m line, which misses all the jumpers and France drive back upfield, releasing all the pressure which could have ended in a game-clincher for the visitors.

70th minute – France's scrum powers through England's eight, forcing tighthead Dan Coles up and out and securing a penalty which closes the scoreline gap to 21-19, piling more pressure on England.

77th minute – France hooker Dimitri Szarzewski breaks away, makes 30m and times a perfect pass to Gaël Fickou for a try under the posts which wins the game for France.
