FRANCE have beaten Italy with a bonus point in their opening Six Nations fixture.
Les Bleus suffered an early scare when debutant Tommaso Menoncello scored the first try of the match to give the visitors the lead.
However, Anthony Jelonch responded by pouncing on a loose pass to put France a point ahead.
And Gabin Villiere rounded off a well worked move to move the French to beyond a try ahead of the visitors.
Villiere then scored a second try to extend the French lead after the break before Maxime Penaud manufactured a brilliant bonus point try.
The winger then claimed a hat-trick with the last play of the match to put the gloss on a comfortable win.
