The teams:

Pinned

Lineout claimed and a massive drive.... France are close to getting over here. In fact they have! Gabrillagues reaches over the line from inside the ruck. Stealth try

Machenaud's conversion slides across the face of the posts from the right touchline. 5 - 0 7 mins gone

How did I get the short straw of the two teams with long hard to spell names???

Italy trying a sneaky lineout play. it gets them to the French 22 but the ball is spilled into touch.

France claim their lineout, then get in a mess and concede a kickable penalty, which Allan puts into touch near the 5m line

TRY!!!!

Wow. In a game of any maul you can do, we can do better, the Italians just marched that down the 22 and scored... or did they????

Replay makes it look like no grounding occurred. But!! It now looks like they are checking for a collapsing penalty on the maul

Crowd jeering, but, finally we have a decision. Penalty try given for a collapse of the maul by an unidentifiable player. Conversion is automatically given (to speed the game up!!) 13mins, 5 - 7

Penalty France. Awarded off their own scrum on their own 10m line. Beauxis takes play to the Italian 10m line
