- Dupont in hospital with suspected fractured cheekbone
A rampant France demolished Namibia 96-0 in Marseille, with Damian Penaud plundering a hat-trick of tries as the hosts achieved a record score to maintain their perfect start to the World Cup. However, the victors saw Antoine Dupont go off with a potential serious facial injury.
