The teams:

Pinned

Penalty to France.

Tapped and gone

It's all forwards, until a deliberate knock on brings another penalty and a yelolow to Italy

Fittingly the game ends on a bit of French confusion under the Italian posts. France's losing streak is snapped at 8. Italy now 15 consecutive 6 Nations defeats. Hard to see where that ends...oh, hold up, they have Scotland in Rome on the final day of the tournament.

Bastareaud man of the match for me, but neither England nor Wales will be quaking over playing France in the final two rounds.

So, there we have it, weekend number 3 is under way. Join us tomorrow for Ireland v Wales and Scotland v them
