    France ended their winless run with an ultimately comfortable win in Marseille to continue Italy’s Six Nations misery.

    The hosts – playing a Six Nations home match away from Paris for the first time – wasted countless chances before eventually putting away a tiring Italy.

    With centre Mathieu Bastareaud excelling on his return, France ran in three tries to win for the first time in nine games.

    Italy have now lost a record 15 straight Six Nations matches.

    Conor O’Shea’s side were in touch at half-time but had no answer to France in the second half, who missed several chances to pick up a fourth try and a bonus point, before full-back Matteo Minozzi’s late consolation try for Italy.
