It had been six years since the French team had won at Murrayfield. He ended the series with a win, a Scotland side having denied it a Grand Slam in the tournament in the first quarter on this Sunday, 22–15.
This victory in the Autumn Nationals, Fabian Galthey’s fifteen, patiently made it against the Scottish team without a break, but were skilled in the art of breaking the rhythm and thwarting the opponent. The drizzle that took place this afternoon, the Blues never managed to produce the game that saw them defeat Ireland at the end of October in the “final” of the 6-nation tournament. . So much so that we saw a heavy match and we were waiting for great flights to this Fifteen.
A single flash …So the tasteless first half was a succession of kicks of all kinds (penalties, candles, direct touches), forwards and lost balls … The second period was the same with the Scots without the imagination but strongly engaging which prompted the French to be cautious. And therefore did not have to take too much risk. Possibly the lesson of the tournament … So it took a flash, just one, an acceleration of the Rátez-Fikou duo to send Wakatawa to record the only attempt of a truly disappointing run in terms of spectacle. But a match won with seriousness is always good for taking and strengthening Fabian Galathi’s troops in their renewal.
Next meeting, next Sunday, against Italy.
