Rugby.  Six Nations Tournament: Against Ireland, these blues showed that they have grown well


Six Nations Tournament (Day Two). France – Ireland: 30-24

They could have destroyed everything. The ability to respond to the Irish frontal style complicates this increasingly powerful project. Destroy this extraordinary indiscipline of the Greens. Destroy this burning atmosphere in the final air that intoxicated the spades of Stedede de France. Destroy this gain taken from the first second, thanks to the dupont found at the beginning and end of the action (7-0, 2 ‘).

But as happened to them in the not-too-distant past, the Blues overcame these distractions that could have cost them dearly. After all, thanks to their ability to stand up with discipline in defense. Fabian Galti’s players defeated tough Irish mechanics and prevented them from observing the normal face of the XV of Clover. He went undefeated in the next nine matches. The one that dominated the All Blacks in the fall, which took place in Welsh last weekend. Who made him a favorite by giving him a legal status like France.

“Making an Irish commented game. We knew the bar needed to be raised in all areas, “said the French coach, who was delighted with the” deserving “victory over Irish coach Andy Farrell. Thrown into major indiscipline (ten penalties), the main janitor (7 ‘, 17’, 36 ‘, 40’, 44 ‘, 78’) was offered several points.

“Air holes”

Only one error can leave Andy Farrell’s players out of the game. The problem is … first, a misunderstanding on the first kick from Carberry allowed Winger Hanson to fly alone (10-7, 7 ‘). Another dismissal, as a new opportunity for the possessed Greens, established the relationship until the end of van der Flyer (22-14, 45 ‘).

“The dismissals were very well typed and we were in trouble. This air pocket was there at the beginning of the second period, ”said Captain Antoine DuPont. “That’s ten gift points, which brought them back into the game,” third-ranked Franവാois Cross said. Now Gibson-Park went solo in the fake in-goal (50 ‘). 22-21, the lead Ireland seemed to have regained its temper. But these tricolors were full of resources, and after a counter-rack, Bailey’s strong effort showed all the power of their character (27-21, 53 ‘).

Cold sweat

And yet it is not over. Carberry’s penalty suffocated the atmosphere (27-24, 73 ‘), Zamineth’s attempt was denied and the flat ball (78’) was not clearly seen by the referee. Returned to a penalty, just three points behind (30-24).

When he was kicked out again (!) The blues stole the ball again and the cold sweat was flowing. With no consequences, Ntamack’s teammates learn from their mistakes and are collectively convinced to succeed in presenting themselves to the final an hour (30-24). Three more to win.
