On Saturday at the Stade du Hameau, in Pau, the Bleues outperformed the Black Ferns with a 38-13 win, six attempts to one! A real achievement for these 15th women from France against the world champions in 2017, even if these New Zealand women, who have been beaten twice by England this November, seem to be the time.
The head-to-head match for the blue jersey paid off, penetrating New Zealand’s defense and sinking it particularly well at the end. And they could have added the seventh attempt, rightly rejected in the 29th minute for a striker.
They attacked very frankly, the French in the white jersey. Even if the Blacks Ferns opened the scoring (the eighth) with a penalty kick, the fifteenth of France started his first attempt (Cyril Bennett 11) after a good series of passes. Then the French winger double (15, 12-6) at the conclusion of the pass at the minute foot of the center of Werner.

France doubled the lights, directly challenging the New Zealanders in the aftermath of the defense and Chloe Jacquet, 19, found the opening (40+1) to make it 19-6 in the break. The rest was the same, Bleues added the fourth attempt by Emilie Boulard (47, 26-6) in a surplus that followed a notable scholastic move, sharp and precise.
After an empty moment in the 50th minute but a good collective defense (54), the French took advantage of New Zealand’s indiscipline and yellow card against the base (57, foul to touch) to widen the gap, especially in the scrum and in the carried balloons. to lack strength (70, 38-6). Before the kiwi’s last stand, it was too late to be dangerous.
