Full Match Report

MEDITERRANEAN CUP - MATCH 1

France one of the two favourites for the Rugby League Mediterranean Cup displayed their credentials with a crushing victory to open the week long international tournament. France overcame initially stiff Moroccan resistance to rack up a 72-0 triumph in Tripoli’s International Stadium.

Pia halfback Maxime Greseque was on top form as he dominated play for France, bagging three breakaway tries and as many goals for a personal haul of 18-points. Laurent Frayssinous (pictured) notched five goals. Wing Michael Van Snick opened the scoring in the fifth minute to start a procession of French tries, joining wing partner Henri Marot and substitute Sebastian Azema on two tries.

France’s Saturday showdown with Lebanon promises to be a titanic clash as they seek to avenge last year’s 36-6 cup defeat in Tripoli.
