In a cross-over interview with Thierry Henry, Antoine Dupont looked back on the Blues’ World Cup quarter-final defeat to South Africa. The Toulouse player in particular says that he re-watched the match the next day in order to eliminate the feeling of injustice associated with some of the refereeing decisions.

The Blues still keep it in their throats. The defeat to South Africa in the World Cup quarter-finals (28-29) is a wound that will take time to heal for Fabien Galthiet’s men. In an interview with Thierry Henry to the media Bruce, the captain of the France XV, Antoine Dupont, returned to the huge disappointment towards the Springboks. While Tite says he never watched the French side lose the 2006 World Cup final to Italy on penalties, the Stade Toulouse half was filled with confidence.

“I watched it the next morning (the South Africa match) because I couldn’t sleep. I slept for a few hours, and then I couldn’t do it anymore. I said to myself, ‘Okay, I’ll watch it now, then I won’t watch it anymore.'”DuPont admitted. “It was the officiating stuff in particular that I wanted to see again. In 2019 we lost the quarter-final by one point, and I never watched it after that. But this (from 2023), I wanted to see it again. I had to, I think I needed To him. You always have that impression on the pitch, and it’s not necessarily the same afterwards. That was to see if this feeling of injustice that we had was real… In the end, it’s no use, no use, except maybe acceptance more easily, or understand certain things…”Added the best player in the Top 14.

A few minutes after the French XV team lost to Bucs, Dupont criticized the decisions of New Zealand referee Ben O’Keefe, especially his shooting. “I’m not sure the refereeing was up to the challenge.”. This time, the Lanmesan native, who will compete in the Paris Olympics with the French rugby sevens team, appears to have finally turned the page. It remains to be seen whether this will be the case for his teammates in France’s XV…
