It's passed to Beauxis in the pocket who looks for a drop goal off a penalty advantage. It doesn't threaten the posts but we'll come back for a Machenaud penalty

In front of the posts, kick those in your sleep. 14 - 7 after 45mins

Italy have not looked like threatening to score since they did, and yet somehow they are still in this

Another illustration there as to why/ Cross field kick for territory by France, goes out on the full. Sloppier than a Sloppy Guiseppe

From the lineout a penalty to Italy and it's kicked to the corner form where they.... lose the lineout

Machenaud finds touch, not too far outside the French 22

Scrumhalf change for Italy. Gori for Violo...

Parisse taken out off the ball, penalty Italy in the middle of the park, Allen will look for 3 points

Whistling from the locals fails to put Allan off, Italy into double figures

This looking more and more like a wooden spoon decider by the minute.... Scotland of course will have something to say about that tomorrow.... but so far this has been ordinary at best
