Post New Zealand v France 2nd Test
I believe that the NZ team is unchanged?

France have made some changes, as follows

Medard dropped, Fall in at full back...ok in attack ..a weak link in defence.

Fickou, normally a centre replaces injured Grosso on the wing.

Galletier and Babillot come in to the back row, both lightweight.

Young tighthead Gomes Sa relaces Silmani on bench, Gomes Sa is the future but this is a real test for him.

No Fickou? Not sure if he is still injured, he missed the first test.

Le Roux replaces Gabrillagues, who moves to bench, at 2nd row. LeRoux is a makeshift 2nd row.

Young hooker Bougarit comes on to the bench, he is young and very promising but like Gomes Sa will have a daunting time of it.

Le XV de France face à la Nouvelle-Zélande :
Fall - Thomas, Bastareaud (cap.), Doumayrou, Fickou - Belleau, Parra - Galletier, Gourdon, Babillot - Maestri, Le Roux - Atonio, Chat, Priso.

Remplaçants : Bougarit, Baille, Gomes Sa, Gabrillagues, Lapandry, Serin, Pliss

Not sure which abattoir they are playing at or who is reffing, whatever ...it will be more of the same and potentially more points.

I don't like bull fighting and I'm I'm not one for the history of the Roman Games....so might baulk at this one and rewatch France U 20 match v Baby Blacks instead :D

Fra did well at start...good penetration, try disallowed for grounding, pressed for another and had pen compensation.

Then Red card after 11 and now 7/3 after 15


Good night and goodbye won't be pretty....

This is going to be very painful to watch if you are French.

ABs are playing a bit shit, and with Ofa on in the scrums the French will have the advantage there. Can't see a 50 pointer.

Then again the French always give up.

Fra forwards standing up well, AB forwards disappoint.
