No Grand Slam for France’s XV for this Six Nations tournament. Victory goes to Ireland on Saturday 18 March. The Blues now aim for the World Cup.

Eyes glued to the TV, the Blues are the first fans of England, Saturday 18 March. Ultimately it is Ireland who wins, and the Grand Slam this year will be for the Greens. If France finished second, the Azzurri have made further progress, and thrill those who come to admire them.

Fans delighted by the XV of France

The XV of France exudes a form of insurance, amplified by a tremendous desire to play. Jonathan Danty flattened the second try, the 80,000 crowd only had eyes for the Blues. “[L’équipe] it is alive, it is dynamic on the ground. And it shows what we are really capable of on the new generation”, comments one supporter. The Blues scored five more tries this Saturday and scored 41 points. They have only one defeat in their last 18 games. The World Cup in France in September is on everyone’s mind.
