England lead the Championship on points difference from Ireland with three wins from three after a 42-7 rout of Italy last weekend as they continue the defence of their title and the pursuit of a successive Grand Slam.
But Philippe Sella's men have recovered from an agonising 13-12 opening round loss to Ireland with back to back wins ahead of the showdown at the Stade de le Rabine.
With Ireland breathing down their necks England know victory will be essentialand although Rob Hunter’s side have averaged 47 points a game, flanker Walker is refusing to take anything for granted.
“France are a good side,” said Walker. “They lost narrowly at home against Ireland back in February but have beaten Wales and Italy, so we know that they will provide a significant threat.
“But we can only control ourselves and we’ve trained well this week and we’re looking in good shape.
“It’s good to have a few of the Premiership guys back in and we’re looking forward to seeing what they can offer.”
Hunter makes three changes from the side that won in Rovigo with Gloucester’s Ryan Mills coming in at fly-half, while hooker Koree Britton and No. 8 Jack Clifford return to the starting XV.
“Ryan Mills in at No. 10 is a good move, he’s a top player and I’m sure he’ll keep us ticking over nicely, and with Tommy Bell on the bench too, we’ve got some really nice options at fly-half.”
