France made the perfect start to their Women’s Six Nations campaign with a 39-6 victory over Italy.


Italy dominated possession but it was the hosts who were by far the more clinical, running in five tries at the Stade Des Alpes in Grenoble.

Tries from Madoussou Fall and Emeline Gros helped France to a 17-6 half-time lead, and Lea Murie, Emilie Boulard and Chloe Jacquet all crossed in the second half.
