French unhappy with referee

France coach Aurelien Cologni says he was left frustrated with some refereeing decisions in his team’s 36-point loss to England.

France went down 40-6 to England yesterday in Avignon.

“I’m very happy with our performance but I’m frustrated with some of the referee’s decisions,” Cologni told PA Sport.

“When we were six points ahead, we got two penalties and they take a lot out of you, as it makes it very difficult to build pressure.

“We can be proud as we pushed England into a bad situation. It was a good game for them and us as we showed a good mentality.

“To get to the top three one day, that’s our objective. Last year to lose by 80 was difficult, this year we take 40 but the real score was 28.”
