Morgan Parra has guided France to a 38-18 victory over Tonga in an ill-tempered rugby test match at Le Havre.
The victory will go some way to avenging the shock 19-14 pool loss Les Bleus suffered at the hands of the South Sea Islanders at the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand.
Both sides lost a player to a red card after a second-half dust-up
