The France rugby coach Philippe Saint-Andre says it's back to the drawing board ahead of their next Six Nations match against Wales after their surprise 23-18 loss to Italy in Rome.
Saint-Andre says Italy who're ranked tenth in the world are improving all the time and deserved to win.
After a promising November Test series produced three wins over Australia, Argentina and Samoa, France were regarded as tournament co-favourites along with England.
Italy are the perennial wooden spooners but prop Martin Castrogiovanni believes they're capable of beating any team.
Italy's next game is against Scotland.
