Pretty much the opposite is true...
The English had the Longbow.
The Longbow allowed the archers of Henry's army (who hailed mostly from
England and Wales) to aim at the French knights and dispatch them with great
accuracy and speed. Since the French had to cross a sea of mud in order to
reach the English positions, it was only natural that the force with the
most and better archers would have an advantage. The French lost over 10,000
dead, including many noblemen, while the English suffered only 112 dead and
a number of wounded.
