Not since October 3, 2015, have they tasted defeat as this remarkable turnaround in fortunes sees them enter this Championship as hot favourite.
Ireland might have something to say about that while it’s also a year of hope for Scotland and France, with Wales and Italy not so fancied.
Eddie Jones and Dylan Hartley stressed at the tournament launch of their focus being solely on les Bleus, which is believable following the showing they put in against New Zealand late last year. That was a French outfit we haven’t seen for a long time that looked a real threat.
Reaching those levels from the outset would certainly rock England back onto their heels but this is a side under the demanding Jones that has passed test after test. Players are maturing, depth is growing; make no mistake this is an English squad closing in on the All Blacks.
They will be further encouraged by the fact they have not lost at Twickenham in the Six Nations since Wales were the visitors in 2012, a run of eleven straight wins, with another win equalling their best ever home sequence in the history of the Championship set between 1911-1921.
Factor in France’s poor recent record on the road in the Six Nations – winning only once away from home since 2014 – and many are pointing towards an England victory that would set them up nicely for their trip to Wales, who will not find things easy against Italy this weekend.
Injuries have unfortunately been the overriding talking point though leading up to this match, with England missing the Vunipola brothers, Chris Robshaw, Anthony Watson and George Kruis, while France find themselves without the quality of Wesley Fofana. All are notable setbacks.
Yet both have named impressive sides and will look to mix their styles, with England’s power game complimented by pace and excellent distributors. France meanwhile should have the edge at scrum time, especially late on while they possess a backline that is crying out for ball.
If all of those ingredients come to the fore at Twickenham then spectators are in for quite a match as France look to capitalise on a somewhat depleted, yet still strong, English side. This, however, is a home team that seems further driven by each game they win, with Jones and his staff creating of culture that has them as the team to beat this Six Nations. France will have first crack but may come up just short.
