Wales’ hopes of winning the Women’s Six Nations tournament were dashed as France stayed on course for the Grand Slam with an emphatic 33-5 victory with bonus points in Cardiff.
The Welsh, looking to respond to their 58-5 third round in England, were on their feet from the start and trailed 26-0 at the break.
France scrum-half Laure Sansus – the tournament’s top try scorer – took her tally to six with two goals, either side of winger Caroline Boujard and full-back Chloe Jacquet.
Les Bleues continued to dominate after the restart. Fly-half Jessy Tremouliere, who added the extras on three of the first four scores, converted his own try in the 54th minute to further stretch the scoreboard.
Wales offered some resistance in the final 25 minutes and claimed a consolation try in the dying moments through replacement flanker Sioned Harries.
France will try to complete the tournament next Saturday when defending champions England visit Bayonne.
