France full field team try vs England 1991

France full field team try vs England 1991

In a Grand Slam decider at Twickenham, Serge Blanco ran the ball from beneath his own posts after a missed penalty from England.

Lafond, Sella and Camberabero brilliantly outmanoeuvred the English defence before Philippe Saint-Andre gathered a pinpoint kick ahead to touch down.

To this day it remains one of the greatest team tries ever seen in international rugby.

I was standing and shouting just behind the posts...! a fantastic match norrowly lost by the French (but 3 tries to 1)... I dont remember a crowd being so happy after the game as the Brits here scored a Grand Slam... fantastic time in London afterwards : free beer for all the Frogs till late at night... and I don't remember the name of that sweet girl...PS : wonderful website here.. !

Mods, you have to add this one...The Baba's of 73, as well as that try vs England pale in comparison...It's that famous French try at Eden Park in 1994...Try of the century said the Sunday Times...Where did this free-flowing rugby go?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54_2gyRv3uI&mode=related&search=
