Lydia Thompson scored a last-minute try as an error-strewn England beat France 17-15 in a thriller in Exeter.

Jessy Tremouliere’s penalty and Laure Sansus’ try put the visitors 8-0 ahead before two Emily Scarratt penalties had reduced the arrears by half-time.

Scarratt kicked two more penalties as England went four points clear.

Caroline Boujard’s 67th-minute try looked to have won it for France, but with both sides down to 14 players, Thompson went over to seal the victory.
