Rugby: France wins XV Grand Slam

CThe French rugby team won its tenth Grand Slam, 25-13, against XV de la Rose. Stade de France is in a state of euphoria on Saturday, March 19, after a delicious match dominated by French players from start to finish. The authors of three attempts against England, The Blues of Fabian Galti and Antoine DuPont, have not won a match since 2010. They beat Italy (37-10), Ireland (30-24), Scotland (36-17) and Wales (13). -9) and England. They finish the six-nation tournament unbeaten.

For the Blue Army, this is an apotheosis twelve years later. It is also a step on the path leading France’s XV to the 2023 Home World Cup. Fabian Galti likes to reiterate that there are boxes to mark the “arrow of time” aimed at the World Cup: after defeating Scotland in Cardiff Wales and Scotland in Edinburgh and Ireland in Dublin, Australia dominated “Down Under” for the first time since 1990. The Blues were looking forward to a title in 2022 with a win over the All Blacks. Now it’s over.

They will be able to take a new step with victory in front of world champions Springboks on the autumn tour. Since the end of the 2019 World Cup, which ended in the quarter-finals, the Blues have transformed and defeated all the great names in world rugby. Except for the South Africans back then.

Emotionally, coach Fabian Galti commented to France Television: “The uncompromising work of passion and commitment allowed us to win this evening and end the tournament with a Grand Slam. I still can not understand it, that’s the thing. We’re still under pressure … “On his official Twitter account, the President of the Republic also shared his joy:” After 12 years of waiting, our Blue Army has won a Grand Slam against England. Tonight I am writing a new page of rugby. Congratulations to the whole team! See you in 2023 … in France!
