Six Nations golden moments: Saint-André’s try v England, 1991

Another day, another brilliant rugby memory to get us in the mood for the weekend. Allons, à Paris…

AS WE COUNT down to Saturday’s Six Nations kick-off, we’re reliving one of our favourite tournament memories every day this week. What better way to whet the appetite…

Today, we delve back into the past — well, back to 1991 when it was still the Five Nations — for a moment of counter-attacking magic by Philippe Saint-André and France.

The winger’s brilliant try might not have been enough to prevent England’s march to a Grand Slam, but France could do a lot worse than look to their new coach for inspiration against Italy on Saturday.
