SKY_MOBILE Chris Ashton and Wesley Fofana - England v France - 24/2/13

Brilliant solo effort: Wesley Fofana

With France and England facing off this weekend it's an appropriate time to look back at some classic tries from Le Crunch.

It's a fixture that stretches back as far as 1906 when the two teams first met in Paris, both going on to establish themselves as two of the rugby universe's heaviest hitters.

Though archives won't yield evidence of all tries scored, our friends at Bleacher Report have compiled a list of the 10 finest tries ever scored between these two titans of the sport, a majority of which unsurprisingly come from the Six Nations.

Have a look here.
