France welcomed England to the Stade de France in Paris knowing any sort of victory would hand the Grand Slam, having won all four of their other matches.
The moment of the match came from the ever elusive scrum-half Dimitri Yachvili.
So dangerous on the counter attack - France won back possession just outside the English 22. Yachvili ran down the left hand, chipping the ball past Josh Lewsey before collecting it again and diving over the try line.
France would lift the Grand Slam in 2004 with a 24-21 win over England.
