They always lose when it matters.
England will want to bounce back from that as they need to win to retain any chance of winning the tournament and that is not good news for us.
It's a blow for France to lose its captain like this.
Our target is to remain unbeaten at home right through to the end of the 2007 World Cup.
There will be changes and they will be logical ones, not punitive ones.
When you lose a match, you have to take advantage of the competition for places. Otherwise what will the players who didn't play in the defeat think?
We know what to expect. They will try to put us under pressure and play for territorial advantage. They will be like a wall and we will have to be patient to move that wall.
This was an important match because the result was a determining factor in who wins the tournament. We haven't won the title yet, but we are on the right track. The players handled the pressure very well and with a lot of determination. That is what made the difference.
What sets the Six Nations apart is that it's the only official competition we play each year. It's a goal, whereas when you are playing Test matches, what matters is not losing. The tournament is the major competition for us in the season, and we have to win it. We are in a position to do that; we have to produce a match like we did last weekend. We have the cards in our hands.
