The visitors' only concern came when the hooker, Jean-Michel Gonzales, the one Test candidate, limped off after the interval with a knee injury.
France scored three tries through the pace of their wings, Pierre Hontas and David Berty, who went over twice. The fourth came from a rolling maul which drove Gonzales over the line. The stand-off, Pierre Montlaur, scored 18 points with his boot.
