France-Ireland (F): the Ménagers move, the two Irish tries conceded… The tops and the flops


Strong match between twin sisters Marine and Romane Ménager. The winger and the third line showed their power and their aggressiveness to push back the Irish defensive lines. The first notably scored the second try for Les Bleues this Saturday following a magnificent action with Pauline Bourdon Sansus…

The host of the Bleues game was in great form this afternoon. Always efficient and clairvoyant by hand or foot. The scrum half notably signed the action of the match in the 32nd minute, making a superb chistera for Marine Ménager's try. The metronome of this XV of France.

For her first selection with Les Bleues, the Stade Toulousain player kept all her promises and showed the extent of her talent. The 18-year-old winger was incisive defensively on her tackles and showed her speed, notably on her try in the 56th minute of play... which was (unfortunately) refused.


Despite the clear and clear score of this meeting (38-17) with notably 5 tries on the clock, the French could have scored many more tries this Saturday. The fault of numerous approximations in the last transmissions and (too) numerous hand faults, especially in the first period (5). Les Bleues will have to be less messy and more efficient next week in Edinburgh against Scotland and for the rest of the Tournament, in order to compete with the great English favorites.

The other (small) downside to remember from the big French victory, the two tries conceded in the last ten minutes (74th and 77th). The last could have been avoided if Lina Tuy had been quicker to recover the ball in front of her line. Dalton would then not have had time to recover the leather from the Frenchwoman's hands and flatten for Ireland. Slight errors, certainly not serious, which will still have to be erased for the rest of the competition.
