“Heavy disappointment”

Towards the end of the match, there was essentially a lot of disappointment from the Blues side. “We’ve given a lot during these nine weeks, so it’s obviously a big disappointment, even to all the people who supported us”, Reacted to France’s XV Captain Charles Olivon. “But we will continue to work, we know where we come from, and we will go back to work. It will develop us.”

For coach Fabian Galthey, “We can regret that even if at one point we feel that we could not achieve the number of intervals and tries, we still have the possibility of winning this match many times”. “We can regret the team’s fatigue, sometimes a lack of defection”, He said on the microphone of France 2.
