  • France bounced back from their opening round defeat to Ireland by edging Scotland but they were far from convincing and it took a controversial decision at the end of the game to seal their win.
  • The Scots thought they had snatched it at the death but the TMO failed to award the try which handed France the victory and as they bid to build some form, they have largely stuck with the same side here with just two changes to their side, one of which sees the huge Posolo Tuilagi come into the starting line-up for the first time.


  • Italy were nilled by Ireland in their latest contest as they struggled to cope with the quality of their opponents and this is likely to be another long day for them.
  • The Italians have struggled for a long period now and the 36-0 reverse against Ireland came as little surprise but they will hope to at least be competitive here with Ross Vintcent making his first start.



Starting 15: Thomas Ramos, Damian Penaud, Gael Fickou, Jonathan Danty, Louis Bielle-Biarrey, Matthieu Jalibert, Maxime Lucu, Francois Cros, Charles Ollivon, Paul Boudehent, Posolo Tuilagi, Cameron Woki, Uini Atonio, Peato Mauvaka Cyril Baille

France are yet to get going in this year’s Six Nations and were given a huge scare by Scotland in their last encounter. They will aim to make it back-to-back successes as they host Italy and should have no issue with overcoming their opponents but the manner of their performance will be interesting. The Italians have not won in this competition since 2022 and there is little chance of that run ending here with the French likely to be far too good on home soil.

TIP: France -20
