It’s a scenario that repeats itself. Opposed to England in this decisive match of the Six Nations Tournament, Saturday April 27 in Bordeaux, the Blues were beaten by the Red Roses for the thirteenth time in a row (42-21). The players of Gaëlle Mignot and David Ortiz missed their start to the match, conceding two early tries from Maud Muir (5th) and Alex Matthews (12th), both transformed by Holly Aitchison.

Outnumbered after the break after the expulsion of Assia Khalfaoui (43rd), the French scored three tries, including a double from Romane Ménager (28th, 70th). Too little to disturb the English, strong with their six tries. This success against the Tricolores marks the Red Roses’ fifth victory in this tournament, and, above all, their sixth consecutive Grand Slam. Their opponents of the day finished the competition just behind, in second position.

Relive the match.
