France vs Italy: A look at the top performers

The final match in the third round of the 6Nations between France and Italy went down to wire! From the French inside centre Jonathan Danty getting sent off during halftime, to Italy's Paolo Garbisi's penalty kick bouncing the post right at the death, this macth wil go down in the 6Nations folklore.

As always, we're here to break down the players who had the best match statistics. Here are three of the games top performers:

Damien Penaud

The French number 14 is without a doubt one of France's most in form players right now. The speedster ended second on the "most metre gained list" with 88 metres. However was ahead of everyone when it came to defenders beaten with 5, along with line breaks, breaching the oppositions defence line 3 times all off of 13 carries coupled with 2 offloads.

Michele Lamaro

La Azzuri's openside flankers class was on full display against the French, proving to be a defensive enforcer completing a mammoth 18 tackles during the match. 7 carries saw Lamaro gain 17 metres all while proving to be a nifty ball distrubutor with 12 passes completed.

Ross Vintcent

Completing the list is another Italian, Ross Vintcent the eigth-man. Vintcent eqauled his temmate Lamaro's 18 tackles, however, edged him out  with 40 metres gained just off of 6 carries.
