The coach of France XV is happy with the successful start of his team. It underscores some of the improvements that need to be addressed before facing Ireland in Dublin next Sunday.
Interview in Rome
The main satisfaction of entering the seven tests, is everything different in their design?
Fabian Galtic: In this first meeting, it was our desire to dominate on a particular occasion and against an opponent who gave us problems at the start of the match. It was a question of finding a binder in our animation that is offensive and defensive. We were efficient with registering seven attempts. This is good, but next week we focused on areas of improvement that we will be working on.

Is entering the competition a relief?
Comfort is not a word. Glad to have entered the competition. We play, and that’s what we want. We will continue to play for those who can’t do it now, for those who watch us and for those who miss rugby. I especially think about kids, amateur clubs, and all the supporters who can’t go back to the stadiums. Thanks to all these supporters, we try to show beautiful things and make them happy. We had a lot of appetite and this first game satisfied us. Our first meeting was well prepared and we were successful.
«This competition is very positive, but the good thing is that we have the material to work and make more progress»
Discrimination is something you want to improve. Not everything was perfect (9 penalties and one free kick) once again.
We have worked hard in this area to find a balance between commitment, cruelty and control. We hope this will improve significantly with more work. Controlling our actions should not only be criminal but also defensive. But the fines allowed in the areas we targeted have already been reduced by 50%, say from our 30m.
It was necessary to start the tournament far away from home …
We are Latinos. There is always a special connection when playing against other Latinos. The Italians wanted to show their character സ്വഭാവ There is no easy game. We saw it at the end of the match. We made a mistake and we paid for this check. This match is very positive, but we have the material to work better and improve.

Now is the time for the Irish, next Sunday in Dublin.
We are going to have a good week to prepare as much as possible for this match against Ireland, because it will not be the same atmosphere. This is good, we were able to bring in all the finishers so that they can gain experience. We are in a good mood and we continue to find it. We go to Marcosis, which is a good transition to Dublin. Nice-Rome and then Marcos-Dublin are perfect for preparing us for the atmosphere that awaits us next Sunday.
