Fans delighted by the XV of France

The XV of France exudes a form of insurance, magnified by a tremendous desire to play. Jonathan Danty flattened the second try, the 80,000 spectators only had eyes for the Blues. “[L’équipe] is alive, it is dynamic on the ground. And it shows what we are really capable of on the new generation”, comments a supporter. The Blues still scored five tries this Saturday, and scored 41 points. They have only one defeat in the last 18 games. The World Cup in France in September is on everyone’s mind.
