Saturday Night's Alright for Rugby......
England and France meet on Saturday. They're both trying to extend record runs. "Two of rugby's unbeaten records collide under the floodlights of Marseille on Saturday, as England aim for their 15th consecutive Test win, while hosts France intend to extend their perfect record at the Stade Velodrome.

Les Bleus boast a 100 percent win ratio in the Mediterranean city, although some shine may be taken off this by the fact that they have only graced the turf there three times.

Having said that, all three were in the last few years, and the notable scalps of South Africa, New Zealand and Australia to have fallen in its cauldron-like atmosphere suggest that a tough reception awaits the English visitors at a venue closer to the traditional southern French rugby base, rather than the often flat Stade de France in Paris."
