How to watch Italy v France for FREE: TV channel and live stream for Six Nations rugby today

The odds are strong against the Azzurri in another tough opening test, although Kieran Crowley’s side will have taken great courage to end their 36-game losing streak in the competition against Wales in Cardiff the last year.

Italy also sealed a first-ever win over Australia in the fall to bolster hopes they could avoid collecting another wooden spoon in the northern hemisphere’s premier international competition.

However, France are an incredibly tough initial opponent as Fabien Galthie’s side seek a quick start in defense of their first Grand Slam in 12 years.

Like England, the Blues are currently dealing with a host of injury problems as they look to make a real statement ahead of the pressure of a home World Cup later in 2023.

However, inspired by arguably the best player on the planet in Antoine Dupont, France should still have more than enough quality available to comfortably put Italy to the sword here.
