7.20pm: That's all from us - we'll be back for the Grand Slam effort next week. In London. On St Patrick's Day. That'll be a quiet night in at the library - not!7.05pm: A bit more from Jones."We're struggling at the moment, so we're always looking to learn and make sure we're stronger next time we play. We're going through a difficult period and we'll come out the other side of it soon I'm sure.
"We're about two or three per cent from where we needed to be today. We were beaten at the breakdown,we gave away too many penalties, and when we had the momentum we didn't score, whereas they did."
6.55pm: Eddie Jones is talking and claims England are just "two or three per cent away", which seems unlikely on the showing of the last fortnight.
"This is a learning moment for us."
6.45pm: Owen Farrell is a little understated when he says discipline "could be better". You're right Owen. Could.
"We had a chance but unfortunately could finish it. We have to look back on it and learn from it.
"We are bothered about this game at the minute, fresh from walking off the field. It has been a tough game so credit to France. They defended really well. We will have to look how we can be more clinical.
"You have to build a score to be able to break a team to score four tries. That comes from pressure and unfortunately we weren't able to build it consistently.
"Our discipline can be better. Some of that is ill discipline and some accuracy. We have to make sure we get that balance right."
FULL-TIME - IRELAND ARE SIX NATIONS CHAMPIONS!
Let the inquiry begin. England have only lost two games but the richest union in the world will always be questioned when they are beaten twice in two weeks. Eddie Jones will have some very tough questions to answer this evening. We'll bring you his answers as we get them.
Meanwhile, the corks will have popped in Dublin - although they will still be hungry for that Grand Slam and the chance to inflict a third straight defeat on England.
England have kicked a penalty into the corner... and they overthrow the man. But in a comedy of errors Beauxis misses touch! Now England have another penalty and I think we'll do the same again! This is such bad rugby.PENALTY FRANCE (Beauxis 78')
Penalised at the breakdown. Obviously. Horribly predictable England.
TRY ENGLAND! (May 74'; conversion Farrell)
A bit of life, as England spin it wide to the overlap and nearly blow the chance again by hitting Daly with the miss pass, who is marked, but he brilliantly basketball passes it back inside to May who can only score. Farrell sinks the conversion too. That is an excellent kick. Game on, sort of.
Ben Te'o makes England's best line-break of the day but he tries to fling a huge pass out wide on the bounce to Elliot Daly and the chance goes. Seems appropriate.
PENALTY FRANCE (Machenaud 63')
Yet another penalty - the 14th against England - hands Machenaud a simple chance and the gap is two scores.
England are back to 15 but George Ford has dropped the ball in midfield. It is his last action as Farrell moves to fly-half and Jonathan Joseph comes into the fray.
Neil Squires checking in:
“England rode out the storm well with 14 men and the Stade de France in full voice but they still have an uphill challenge to salvage something out of this game.
“To his ever-growing list of responsibilities Owen Farrell will be playmaker-in-chief for the last quarter with George Ford withdrawn.”
England hanging on by a thread. Twice France blow an overlap and when they get a five-metre scrum, England are awarded the penalty. But they can't hang onto the ball for very long as France are awarded a penalty back! Jaco Peyper might need a new whistel soon - he's getting quite the workout.
TRY FRANCE! (Penalty 49')
Teddy Thomas seizes on a ball that goes loose from a cross-kick and looks certain to score - before Anthony Watson makes an incredible try-saving tackle... or does he?
The TMO is asked to take a position and he thinks it's high, which it is, and that it has prevented Thomas scoring, which it did. Watson gets 10 minutes in the sin bin too.
Massive blow for England. Ireland can probably think about lighting the candles on the cake.
45 MINUTESIt's penalties galore here. England are getting battered at the breakdown and that is rarely any clearer than when Bastareaud outmuscles George Ford in a ruck in a decent position for England.
No changes for either side. We're back underway with George Ford kicking things into action, a relative term in this case.
5.35pm: Apropos of nothing in particular, Maxime Machenaud is a really, really good-looking bloke. There are about 100 photos of him in our system from the pre-match media and he looks amazing in every single one.
Neil Squires is doing some actual analysis
“All square at the Stade de France. Owen Farrell administers a few words in a brief huddle on the pitch before heading into the tunnel. Sort the breakdown out? Stop going offside?
"Deliver something with a bit of ingenuity in attack? France barely resemble a team in the proper sense of the word but England’s own inadequacies are holding them back.
"They are fitter than France which should pay dividends in the second half but they have left themselves a lot to do. Their title looks to be slipping away at the break.”
