Argentina did to France today what South Africa did to the Pumas. Punishing defense and clinical attacking deservedly swung the game in the south american team's favour. The pack were once again magnificent while the backline played with a menace they didn't display previously in the competition (bar spells against Ireland). Six wins versus one defeat is a marvellous and thoroughly deserved record to exit France 2007 with. It's good riddance to Bernard Laporte. He's wasted the talents of this French team by being both clueless and indecisive. Had another coach been in charge, France would be in the World Cup final with a tremendous chance of winning it. Instead players like Ibanez, Dominici and Pelous will retire without the World title their talents merit.
