France resoundingly beat Wales to keep slim Six Nations title hopes alive

Damian Penaud crossed twice, Jonathan Danty, Uini Atonio and Gael Fickou scored a try each and Thomas Ramos kicked the other points, meaning Les Bleus will win the championship if Ireland lose to England without a bonus point later on Saturday.

Wales, who looked to be heading for a much bigger loss early in the second half, fought back and finished with four tries by George North, Bradley Roberts, Tomos Williams and Rio Dyer, the other points coming from the boots of Dan Biggar and Leigh Halfpenny.

Wales made a perfect start, holding the ball as they worked through the phases and their domination was rewarded with North's early try between the posts.

France's reaction was as brutal as it was brilliant, a week after inflicting a record mauling on England at Twickenham.

On their first attacking move, Penaud collected a long pass from Antoine Dupont and crossed in the corner after Romain Ntamack had escaped several tackles to dance his way through the middle.

Danty dived over in the corner after quick movement of the ball wide out to the right.
