What to remember
No need to discuss it for hours: In rugby, physically pushing your opponent generally ensures you get out of it not so badly in a meeting. Still superior to the conquest, the Blues enforced their law on black ferns in the wake of a royal package. Best clarification? This is the start of the match where Annick Hayraud’s players used a touch and then Scum to cross the line by Suchat (fourth) and Castell (twelfth). Shortly before the break, the tricolor took advantage of a fresh touch to break New Zealand, cut back to 14 steps for attempting to break the hit, and earning a penalty attempt (40+3).
But everything was not perfect in the first chapter. Blame it on some folly, with this striker from Chloé Jacquet annihilating a great job (26) and approx. Another downside, this test was performed in the only attack of black ferns (ranked 38), following a major breakthrough by Portia Woodman.
This will be the last big chance for players from the Southern Hemisphere, the world champions in 2017. More consistent in defense than it was a week ago at Béarn, Black Fern limited damage by not scoring during their numerical decline, only cracking one last time, In a trip in the goal of Marie O’Reilly Castle (56), for a double from the wing. Serious to the end and dominating the match, the Blues were very reassuring Less than a year from the World Cup that will take them to New Zealand.
Player: Agatha Suchat, Shock Whore
She had already crossed the line in Bao a week ago. Stade Bordelais took it back to Castres, and scored her team’s first attempt hard. Agatha Suchat dominated like a tricolor group of attackers, spending herself without counting, as much in melee, as in attack as in defensive missions. Simply impressive.

Les Bleues wants to form a raid. Exhausted by a stifling first period, second-grade Maya Ross immediately threw himself on the ground to break through and attempt to disrupt the French advance. Attempt a logical penalty and a yellow card.
