England Women Sevens finished second in pool C and progressed to the cup quarter-final of the Rugby Europe Women’s Sevens Grand Prix Series in Marcoussis, France after a 14-26 defeat by France.
James Bailey's side ran in five tries in their pool C opener against Italy in a 31-0 victory and followed that up with another five scores in the 35-0 win against Portugal, before the loss to the hosts.
England will now face Wales in the cup quarter-final on Saturday 30 June at 11:28 BST in a game you can watch on the RugbyEurope website here.
France were ahead inside the first minute when Joanna Sainlo spotted a gap in the defence and ran through, before Shannon Izar raced away from deep inside her own half for a second score.
England's attacking pressure was rewarded on the stroke of half-time as Amy Wilson Hardy hit an excellent line through the middle as it sat 7-14 to the hosts.
Some clever offloading then set up Jess Breach for her third try of the day as the game was tied 14-14 in the closing stages.
However, France went over for a third, which Emily Wood was sent to the sin bin for her tackle on the try scorer, and then Carla Neisen capitalised on a handling error to secure the win for Les Bleus.
England opened their tournament by scoring five tries in their opening two games as they started in impressive fashion.
Against the Italians, Jess Breach and Millie Wood both went over twice before Olivia Jones crossed for the fifth.
In the second game against Portugal, captain Natasha Hunt got the scoring going following a break down the left wing.
A superb break by Holly Aitchison then set up Jones to cross, before some neat offloading from a couple of players then set up an easy score for Amy Wilson Hardy.
Celia Quansah ran in down the right wing for England's fourth and a smart show and go through the middle by Katie Mason got the fifth as she ran under the sticks.
England Women Sevens head coach James Bailey: “We’ve taken a lot of positives out of today – the girls have played some great rugby and worked really hard in the last game against France so I’m really happy with their performance.
“This is an interesting tournament for us because we’ve got a real blend of youth and experience and the group have come together really well in a short space of time.
“We’re very much looking forward to the quarter-final against Wales tomorrow in what will no doubt be a tough encounter.”
