After a win over the Fijians to kick off this Madrid tournament, the Blues came away with a big win over Ireland and Day 2 started off in style! A 31-5 victory earned the French a place in the semi-finals. Next match against Australia at 3:27!

The Blues worried the Irish from the outset with a superb effort from Christiansen in the opening moments of this meeting. But Ireland responded immediately. So both teams found themselves neck and neck just seconds before the break. Irish Serafin Okemba, guilty of a foul, gave his teammates one last chance to score. The latter should not have been asked twice as much as the Christians. So the Blue Army had a slight lead at half time (10-5).

Okemba takes a break

The start of the second period should have been controlled, and it was! The French scored a third try to widen the gap (17-5). The Irish, so imprecise, found themselves with no real solutions in the game, allowing Okempa to slip between the posts again for another try for the Blues (24-5). In this second half, this XV du Trèfle wore itself out in defense against the fiery French women. The final score speaks for itself, so 31-5 for the Blues who qualify for the semi-finals. A win that puts David Cortez's men in a favorable position to secure top spot in the group. The next meeting is in Australia at 3:27 p.m.
