After a frustrating defeat last week at Clermont, XV de France's daughter bowed again against English Exeter (17-15). The Bleues, who held the victory, were guilty of mistakes at the end of the game which allowed England to score a winning attempt. A terrible disappointment for France that hasn't yet made a full match.
After frustration from Clermont and a raging defeat, XV from feminine France had the chance to catch up and get revenge at Exeter, against XV of the Rose. But that is not the case.
XV French women approaching achievements in England, bowing on Saturday (17-15) at Exeter, a week after the first defeat (20-10) at Clermont-Ferrand. The French women thought they had done the most difficult thanks to two experiments by Laure Sansus (25) and Caroline Boujard (65) but most were at the forefront who dominated, especially in a closed scrum, but permission that was missed in the second minute before the end offered a dream revival to England which has taken over the essay by Lydia Thompson (79).
Morgane Peyronnet can blame herself: the French opener has relinquished his permission to the foot that lands directly on the English arm, while all the French are on the right side of the ground where the ball is located. It was almost no more than a minute and Blue took their revenge (15-12). But England did not miss the great opportunity to register in the end, in a clear order, their only test in the match.
The blue one above
With tears in his eyes, The Blue, who has so far been very good in defense, can regret this fatal error but also the 5 points (1 penalty and 1 transformation) that striker Jessy Trémoulière had passed before. As well as their indiscipline, which allowed England to remain in the match thanks to 4 penalties. If not, Annick Hayraud's players are above. And it is very logical that they opened the scoring with a Trémoulière penalty (22), then scored their first try on a kick to follow Sansus. Half close range beats England's two rebounds to allow his team to make the first gap (8-0).
Swept away in February at Doncaster (41-26) by the same opponents, France thought to hold their first win in the Strait since 2015 after the Boujard test, scoring the closed team score after a good scrum and two against negotiations which were well negotiated by Sansus. Even more so when Zoe Aldcroft accepts the yellow color for an unlawful opening at Gaëlle Hermet (74th).
But France was then rejected: the first touch was lost on their throw (75th), an inevitable yellow card for Romane Menager (76th) until the release was doomed. Overall performance, better than the previous week at Auvergne, however, can look forward to beautiful things for the tournament.
