Six Nations: France v Italy

Jill Douglas presents live coverage from the Guinness Six Nations as France take on Italy at the Stade Pierre Mauroy in Lille.

France bounced back with a dramatic win against Scotland at Murrayfield after getting comprehensively beaten by Ireland on the opening night of the championship. Les Blues now take on an Italy side that have started their Six Nations campaign with back-to-back defeats under new head coach Gonzalo Quesada.

Italy were knocked out of the Rugby World Cup by France in October and they will be desperate to avenge that 60-7 loss at the hands of the tournament hosts. Fabien Galthie's side were at their free-flowing best, as they ran in eight-tries in a dominant display in Lyon to cruise through to the quarter-finals at the expense of the Azzurri.

Studio analysis from Benjamin Kayser, Sergio Parisse and Maggie Alphonsi, commentary from Nick Mullins, Nolli Waterman and David Flatman, with Topsy Ojo reporting.
