Very scrappy first half with Italy suffering from poor discipline especially at scrums giving France a 12-point lead at the break which should have been more. There was a bit more action in the second but the only thing more unbelievable than the try count being just 2-1 was that Joubert kept 15 Italians on the park throughout. The French will feel robbed of a try bonus as well as the influential Huget after what looks like an ACL injury.
