France beats Italy in the Six Nations; Fabien Galthié hails his ‘exceptional’ team

France beat Italy 37-10 to claim their first Six Nations win of the season and give coach Fabien Galthié a timely boost ahead of next month’s clash against Ireland. It was a clinical performance from Les Bleus, who ran in tries from Ethan Dumortier and François Cros in the first half, and Cyril Baille and Gabin Villière in the second. Italy, who were outplayed throughout, managed to score a consolation try from debutant Pierre Bruno in the dying minutes. The match marked the return of several key players for France, including Antoine Dupont, Romain Ntamack, and Grégory Alldritt, who all played significant roles in their Grand Slam-winning campaign last year. Galthié was pleased with the performance of his team and praised their resilience after a difficult start to the tournament. .
