I think I'm rugbied out after the ladies, Scotland v Fiji, and then Newcastle v Bath drained any enthusiasm right back out of me.

I'll look to catch this one tomorrow
Disappointing. I will watching this, the off to bed ready for tomorrow where I drink copious amounts and have a nap in a quiet twickenham
You can tell it's been a minute since this French team played together
Surely fickou taken out then

Edit: ok doesn't matter lol
How that wasn’t a fickou knock on I will never know
Wacky way to end an otherwise pretty bland half
France getting away with running around behind his own players to shield him from tacklers
That looked horrendous on Danty's knee,
Trapped in a ruck and cleared out sideways

No idea how he's managed to walk that off
Wow, what a try to save the game for the French
Hilarious that the refs 'missed' that cleanout on FF. World rugby consistency is hitting lignt speed.

Well played France. Killed us at the breakdown. Illegaly mostly but Wacko Jaco has never read the breakdown rules.
Rewatching this game before the England game and the collision between Antonio and Tupou: 145kgs v 135kgs. 💥
