XV of France: The New Disillusionment

Posted on Nov 24 2013 - 7:07am by Admin

The year 2013 will thus be one of the worst vintages in the history of French rugby. Yesterday evening, the Fifteen France who had invested so much in the last game of his fall tour, had a new disappointment.

Dominated physically, tactically, the Blues have logically been the law of the Springboks. And what is probably the most painful is that they gave the feeling of being unresolved.


Well, this morning, the Fifteen France presents an overview for 2013 eight defeats, one draw and two small successes Scotland and Tonga. This is pretty disastrous from an accounting point of view. And especially this latest setback has given a sense of regression as the Blues despite their courage, seemed to lack control. Just like a hinge Morgan Parra – RĂ©mi Tales who never knew how to influence the course of the meeting.

Exceeded the outset

“Against them, if you’re not mentally prepared, you can stretch,” warned Pascal Pape. Faced with this Springbok team that has made the physical domination of the opponent, the alpha and omega of his rugby, it is imperative to quickly undermine its foundations. And the worst scenario is obviously let him take the lead and confidence score.

This is unfortunately the ball as the Blues tied the ankle cashing in the second minute test lead. Dulin was probably the best of intentions preventing penalty Steyn out of bounds in the 22 meters but his French rescue turned into a wreck. Pietersen, mounted at full speed countering the release of Parra to score unopposed.

The Springboks found themselves immediately into a position they love encamped in defense, leaving the opponent run out trying to make inroads in a terribly thick curtain. They even have a term inherited from the Boer War to translate this jubilant defensive ferocity: “mentality carts.” Forced to carry a handicap race, the Blues began quickly to show signs of restlessness until the 39th minute gave the feeling never be able to solve simple problems but terribly annoying posed by South Africans. They had to burn tons of energy to gain height.

The French bursts often driven by Dulin regularly broke the inverted human Boks, watching the interception. Approaching the break, the Blues had not threatened once the South African line. Instead, their single collective acceleration, and their first grouped entering South Africans the opportunity offered to Steyn dig the score (13-0, 38th).

There was a very brief moment in this thinning when Yoann Huget blocked horizon enjoying a ball picked up by Pascal Pape and well negotiated by Parra scored a try in the corner converted by scrum half Clermont.

Two trials allowed the Boks

Six points behind at the break, it was not necessarily insurmountable. But after the break the Springboks shrugged tempo. They were content to defend and occupy the land. They began shelling the French defense in waves, led by both performative their third line, Vermeulen and Alberts but also by their captain De Villiers.

Les Bleus would experience a first test with alert denied Fourie (42) after an attack that had torn the French curtain. The video referee was still saving (52) in deciding in favor of Huget Louw rather than on a hot situation in the French in-goal.

Private balloon

But private ball dominated territorially, the French found themselves logically nine lengths after a penalty Steyn. And yellow card imposed on Thomas Domingo (67th) for a plating delay Habana, a little more complicated their task.

This team does not lack heart, and she proved it by engaging in a symbolic gesture. Doussain author of a good comeback, materialized this last revolt by placing a penalty brought the Blues within range of a miracle. Especially as Louw ECOPA turn a card for brutality on Pape. That the Boks have had the last word, be put away on a final penalty Lambie is the logic.

There was last night between these two teams that these nine points at the final whistle. There was a distance between the second World of Fifteen France that catfish in troubled waters, but failed to regain its footing nation. Will he succeed in the tournament of the Six Nations, with a visit to England to begin?
