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.
