France not done for yet

Les Bleus defeated Italy 25-13 and they're still in for the victory of the tournament; we are all looking for the clash against Wales, as all the premises for a great and spectacular match are present. The French suffered against the Italian scrum, from which came a wonderful try by Castrogiovanni after an unstoppable maul, but walked over the backs, who probably thought tackling to be an optional. Well here's some piece of news... it is not.

Very nice try in the beginning by Floch, the first signal of the inability of the Italian backs to properly cover the field. Despite a good match by the forwards, the remaining French tries tell the story, and only a great save by Bergamasco saved Italy from a heavier gap.

Wooden spoon here we come...
