Disoriented in the face of the intensity of the tricolor, the New Zealanders struggled in forcing the lock and relied on their kicking game. Without success, far from it. An abundance of ingenuity with a shovel of hand errors did not help the players from the southern hemisphere. Add to that a vigilant French defence, and the run was a tad lackluster for New Zealand at the break.

The Blues didn’t stop there when they returned from the locker room. Equally powerful in the conquest, the France team gave themselves a fourth attempt, synonymous with an attacking bonus, just after the break with a brace by Bossolo Toilagi (28-0, 43).

At the heart of a well-established and flawless group, the second row was one of the big players on Thursday. A true physical phenomenon, the native Samoan was the spearhead of the French herd, who gave up little against these black babies. Except for a ten-minute slump, which saw Les Bleuets drop to 13 after cards by Baptiste Jauneau (51) and Paul Costes (56), another symbol of the indiscipline that can prevail in this team, for which they have already been penalized with 2 yellows. against Japan.

New Zealand returned with other intentions in this second quarter. This alertness allowed him to put his game in place with two tries (28-14, 57 and 65). But it took more to disable the blueberries. Because the latter was decidedly under the hood to reboot the device. Less than three minutes into the Baby Blacks second try, Sebastien Calvet’s men pulled out all the stops and came home after a big near line thanks to Brent Liufau (35-14, 68). With Posolo Tuilagi as the bomber, as is often the case in this game.

Thanks to this huge success, Les Bleuets have sent yet another message of their determination to achieve the treble at the U-20 World Cup. Correcting discipline problems, this French team can legitimately dream of such a feat. Because there is very little to complain about because the game by Hugo Reus and others is great.
