Pauline Bourdon got France off the mark with a sixth minute try that was converted by Jessy Tremouliere and the lead soon doubled in the 12th minute when Caroline Drouin went past the line. Wales finally managed to open their account with a 36th minute penalty from Robyn Wilkins but that remained the only points for them in the game. Tremouliere further extended the lead to 3-19 at half time with a touchdown in the 40th minute. Wales suffered further setback when Jasmine Joyce was sin-binned for tackling without the ball and to make things worse a penalty try was awarded to France. Further tries from Agathe Sochat (57') and Carla Neisen (68') saw France complete 3-38 victories in Colwyn Bay.
