Milton Keynes - Frederic Michalak became France's all-time World Cup points scorer on Thursday as his country moved closer to the quarter-finals with their third successive win, a 41-18 victory over Canada.

The 33-year-old fly-half, already France's all-time leading scorer, scored 14 points to pass Thierry Lacroix' previous mark of 124.

He moved on to 136 points, earning himself the man of the match award.

France's far from convincing win - the Canadians coming back from 17-0 down to 17-12 - sets them up for their final Pool D clash the probable table-topping decider with Six Nations champions Ireland in Cardiff on October 11.

The Irish, unbeaten in their two games so far, play Italy on Sunday.
