It's Globetrotter rugby as France work deep into the Italian 22 via an interception that was rescued by Bastareaud

It's the sort of chaos Gregor Townsend (out) would love. Bastareaud knocks on into the goal area, Italy get the touchdown. Quick drop out is prevented in a professional manner by Fall

So it becomes a penalty, which Bonneval tries and fails to keep in play

Fumbled again at the lineout by Italy. Camara makes Parisse miss a tackle

Little exchange of kicks before Italy put some phases together

Into French territory

It's all slowed down a lot....

Allan goes for an up and under. Get's the distance badly wrong. Easy mark for Grosso

Negri then Biagi, who's on for Budd, get Italy moving, but the ball is lost and Fall's kick through earns France a penaltyas the Italian defenders are forced to hold on to ball.

Machenaud has another penalty attempt, slightly further out than he previous effort but the same result. Almost half time and it's 11 - 7
