The French, who won against Italy last Sunday, continued against Ireland on Saturday.
Reading time: 1 minute
The opening match of the Six Nations Nations Tournament (39-6) in Grenoble last Sunday was a serious one against Italy, and the Blue against Ireland (40-5) was confirmed on Saturday, April 2 in Toulouse. The widely favored Frenchman maintained their rank, taking the lead in the third minute through a Caroline Drew penalty, never to miss the match. Unfortunately a great performance ended with a yellow card addressed to Emily Bollard after the siren.
The main goal of the attack bonus was quickly achieved through four attempts in the first period. Melisande Lawrence (11), Lor Sanchez (23), Audrey Forlani (30) and Clara Joyce (37) went head-to-head in the first half to give the Irish the lead. French (26-0).
At home, Lor Sanchez, who was chosen as the woman of the match, was offered a double as soon as she returned from the locker room (47th). The Irish reduced the mark (55th) and thus avoided the zero point, but it did not seem to deter Anne Hayroad’s players, who scored the sixth try through Emily Bollard.
Convincing and comforting performance after the inaccuracies in the match against Italy. The French will travel to Scotland next Sunday in a bid to secure a third victory in as many matches.
