France hang on to beat Italy in entertaining Six Nations opener

France hang on to beat Italy in entertaining Six Nations opener

Italy came close to springing the first upset of the tournament when they were narrowly beaten 23-21 in the opening match of the 2016 Six Nations. A late attempt at a dropgoal from number eight Sergio Parisse went wide, and France hung on for victory in an entertaining clash.

Italy had led 18-10 at the Stade de France before a Hugo Bonneval try on 59 minutes, and two penalties from Jules Plisson, gave the hosts their first win under new coach Guy Noves.
