France have the overlap! Raguin for the line, is this?!? NO! He's lost it over the line!

Samoa 16-6

Ten minutes left and France with a mountain to climb, they look for a 40/20 but it doesn't have the angle and rolls dead instead. Plenty of wind behind it too.

Samoa 16-6

65

Another French penalty, the pressure building on Samoa again.

Samoa 16-6

Samoa 12-6

49

Samoa 12-6

47

TRY SAMOA
Scored by Anthony Milford. Conversion attempt by Anthony Milford successful.

He jinks, he weaves, and he scores almost untouched! Milford is over under the posts and converts his own try to boot.

Samoa 12-6

44

A huge break up the middle by Mose Masoe, he puts Godinet into some space, who's brought down 20m out. Samoa continue to press but there's no result and France come away with it... and get a penalty too.

France looking likely until a Samoan strip sees the visitors come away with the ball.

Ben Roberts has butchered a certain tryscoring chance for the Samoans - a clear overlap and he throws a bumbling forward pass to his outside man. That'll be the siren.

38

More controversy here, a dangrous tackle by Soliola for Samoa and he's ON REPORT.

Samoa 6-0

29

France with a superb kick return and lazy defenders result in a French penalty on halfway. They attack again!

Samoa 6-0

SIN BIN
Mose Masoe is sent to the sin bin.

Perenara's had enough - Masoe is put in the sin bin for repeated infringements. He retreats to the dugout and France have another penalty.

Samoa 6-0

26

Now France push upfield on the back of a penalty. Now there's a late shot on a French player. Crowd right into this contest...

Samoa 6-0

24

Things heated in Perpignan! First at one end France fluff a try and Samoa go trailing away with the ball, then at the other end Samoa look odds-on to score... and Soliola spills the pill. France scrum.
