Toulon - The French Barbarians recovered from an early seven-point deficit to beat Namibia 35-14 in Toulon on Friday.

PJ van Lill scored in the fifth minute and Theuns Kotze converted to get Namibia off to the perfect start, but the Barbarians notched 21 points in 15 minutes without reply thanks to a try from Rodrigo Capo Ortega and two from Jules Plisson.

Alexandre Bias and Florian Fresia also scored tries for the hosts while Plisson added the conversions.

Namibia, who lost to Canada last week, failed to score in the second half.

Four players were yellow carded, with Namibia prop Andre Schlechter sent to the sin-bin in the 35th minute along with opponent Vincent Debaty.

Tjuee Uanivi and Fresia were carded two minutes from time.
