Entrée en lice réussie pour les Bleues dans la Grande Finale de Madrid. Les Françaises ont écarté les Fidji sans trembler pour leur premier match du tournoi et se positionnent idéalement pour la suite de la compétition.

L’équipe de France a commencé tambour battant et n’a jamais relâché l’étreinte. Avec six essais au compteur pour un seul encaissé, la victoire s’est dessinée tranquillement, bien que rien n’était fait à la mi-temps.

Au moment de changer de côté, la France menait en effet 10-7 grâce à deux essais (non transformés) signés Lili Dezou (3e) et Anne-Cécile Ciofani (6e) contre un essai de Kolora Lomani (7e).

C’est après la pause que les Bleues ont appuyé sur l’accélérateur. Shannon Izar creusait rapidement l’écart (8e), avant que Ciofani n’ajoute deux essais (10e, 13e) pour un triplé personnel et surtout un écart cette fois rédhibitoire pour les Fidjiennes.

Alycia Chrystiaens ajoutait en toute fin de match un ultime essai pour donner un peu plus d’ampleur à la victoire des siennes (36-7).

Les Françaises reviendront sur le terrain ce samedi avec les deux autres matchs de poule :

  • France – Irlande, à 12h.
  • Australie – France, à 15h27.

'Let them keep talking' - Mike Catt claps back over Bok remarks

“You want that – not hatred – but whatever it is that stirs it all up. It’s good.” Agree with this. If you can put a common motivating idea in all your players heads during a game it can produce a real Team perfromance. Erasmus is pretty expert at this. It is quite clear that the comments by Etzebeth, Allende and others were not coincidence and were actioned to create animoisty before the series in order to galvanise the South African mind set. While I understand it, I don’t like it. They result in unnessary vitriol between supporters and for what? I don’t think any of the SA players seriously believe any of these claims and with Ireland ignoring them Erasmus won’t get the escalation he seeks. The vitriol shown by some SA and indeed NZ supporters is extremely weird for NH supporters (OK, maybe England have felt it) but it just feels very odd over a sport. Ireland were more or less sh1t for the first 100 years of their rugby, they have improved significantly in the last 25 to be in a position around now (it may not last) to go into a match with the big guns with a real shot of winning. The reaction to this from some SH supporters has been bizarre with conspiracy theories of ‘Arrogance’ fueling abuse from supporters and even NZ players to Irish crowds during the world cup. I love International rugby and the comraderie between supporters. I genuinely dread and dislike the atmosphere around games with the southern giants. They take this very personally. NH teams: play them, try and beat them, enjoy the craic with their players and supporters and wish them well. SH teams wish them well and they call you arrogant in the press months later. Its just a matter of try and beat them and then good riddance til the next time.
