Rugby | France record bonus-point win over USA

Brilliant to see @FranceRugby's Louis Picamoles sharing a special moment with his children after earning his 81st cap.#FRAvUSA #RWC2019 — Rugby World Cup (@rugbyworldcup) October 2, 2019 France threatened without scoring early in the second half, but McGinty's third penalty in the 64th minute reduced the deficit to three points. However, Gael Fickou crossed the whitewash just two minutes later to swing the momentum back in France's favour. Lopez converted, and Les Bleus plundered their fourth try two minutes after that. Raka set up scrum-half Baptiste Serin to score, with Lopez adding another conversion. Jefferson Poirot powered over the line from a driving maul in the 78th minute to ensure Jacques Brunel's men finished with a flourish. Lopez split the posts with his third conversion of the game to seal a 33-9 win for France. Les Bleus are on nine points after two games, one place and one point behind Pool C leaders England, while the USA are languishing at the bottom of the group.
