France backed up their opening night victory over New Zealand with a highly entertaining 27-12 victory over Uruguay as the inspired Rugby World Cup outsiders made the second-string hosts work desperately for points while scoring two excellent tries.

Uruguay surprised the home fans when Nicolas Freitas collected a loose ball to score the opening try after six minutes and although Antoine Hastoy and Melvyn Jaminet’s boot outscored France, they were lucky to lead 13-5 at half-time after a second . The try for the visitors by Felipe Etcheverry was harshly disallowed for obstruction.

However, they were not to be denied 13 minutes after the break when Baltazar Amaya scored a brilliant try which Etcheverry converted to bring Uruguay, playing with remarkable confidence, within a point.

France, who struggled with discipline all night, quickly responded with a try from Peato Mauvaka, but were still unable to take command and only managed one more, for Louis Bielle-Biarrey, meaning they missed out on a bonus point four tries and you will have hope. play better in the remaining Group A matches against Namibia and Italy.
