French Flair

Day 9 and 10 of the Rugby World Cup 2015 saw no real upsets but some fiery spirit from the minnows, pity the scoreboard not reflecting in their favour.

Tonga beat Namibia 35 – 21.

Fiji looking for their first win of the tournament came up against a confident Wales side who beat hosts England in a nailbiting encounter just a few days ago.

The packed Millennium stadium saw a fierce Fiji team try and fight off the Welsh team but this was not enough as they could not add the points to make their effort count.

This win by the Welsh took them top of Group A – Group of Death, England and Australia face off on Saturday.

The French faced Canada, I predicted the French to win but did not expect Canada to put up this much of a fight. What happened to that French flair? Maybe they holding it for when it really matters.

After the half an hour mark the Canadians scored two quick fire tries causing some nervous moments for the French, even though they scored 3 tries of their own in the first half.

The second half was more of the same, the Canadians putting up a brave defensive performance but once again the scoreboard did not tick in their favour. France added another two tries in the second half with winger, Remy Grosso scoring on debut.

Only 10 days in and over a million spectators packed the stadiums, being entertained by some awesome rugby…..and guess what the best is yet to come.
