A satisfied victory one year after the World Cup
One year ahead of the Women’s Rugby World Cup, this is Le Bleu’s second big success this fall tour after beating South Africa last week (46 to 3!). After the match, Roman Menger retained the third line “The commitment, the fact that we managed to keep the whole match so strong. It’s reassuring, we felt in good shape and the match reflected that.”.
But for Caroline Drouin’s scrum half, “The big piece remains English.”which they will face in February during the 6 Nations Championship. “We know they are number one but we are on the right track to get them and become the first nation ourselves.”.
