Disappointed that we won’t see Ntamack and Vakatawa.

Could be a good opportunity for Jalibert or Carbonel to push Ntamack.

Is it just me, or have France put out their strongest available side against Italy? :oops:

Well considering this season has had quite a few interruptions I imagine they want to give their guys some game time and get them up to speed asap. Especially as they have Ireland next and that game could well decide which of them is in contention by the end.

I don’t think France are taking any chances here with the team put out. They have been complacent in Rome before and it has cost them. I don’t see them having any trouble in this game at all. If France get into a rhythm this could get messy. France will win by 25.

I don't recognise the French 11? Unless he was playing in the autumn and I've just forgotten him, can't wait to see penaud again, amazing player on his day

He was the small 11 who scored that wonder try against Italy in the Autumn Nations.

Wish our anthem ended with a big bang like the italians. Just like make the last word of Amhrán na Bhfiann a big WOO!

My mind is completely blank, he has some serious wheels though.

Looking forward to seeing France again have them to win by 20?

Really hope Italy can make this a game,
They'll miss Polledri and Minozzi though

Edit: he says as the #12 cuts through the French defence like a hot knife through butter

Terrible spacing from France, lucky to get away with it.

So poor from Italy they were doing well and just blow it with their awful tackling.

The way the French manage to move them ball off the tackled player to keep the move going was smart. Hopefully Italy keep it competitive
