France vs Italy Tips

France are looking to build on a shaky win over Scotland in the last round as they put and end to a two-game losing run.

Italy were hammered 36-0 by Ireland in their last outing as they failed to build on a three-point loss to England the week before. 

Head To Head

France have won their last 10 meetings with Italy including two victories in 2023. 

France Form 

France have struggled in the 2024 Six Nations, with the side missing the fluent style of rugby we have come to expect from them. 

Their loss to Ireland in game one put them on the backfoot immediately. They looked on course for defeat against Scotland after their hosts bundled the ball over the line with the clock in the red, however, they were saved by replays not showing evidence conclusive enough to overturn the on-field decision. 

This week, France need a big, try bonus point winning performance that will make it two wins in three and see them build towards their final two matches. Defeat here would be a stunning result but, while France are not quite themselves at the moment, it is tough to see them losing to Italy. 

Italy Form 

Italy were completely outplayed in their last match as they failed to score a point in a 36-0 loss to Ireland. 

While playing the best team in the competition on their own patch was always going to be a tough task, Italy did not look like the same team that ran England close in a 27-24 defeat the week before.

While the Italians will feel that there is something for them in this clash, France's power game and their ability to turn on the flair at any moment will be something that sees Italy slump to their third defeat in a row. 


I am backing France to easily win this one as Damian Penaud gets on the scoresheet with a try.
