As for Beauxis, you can find plenty of his good moments also. But it's obvious he can be extremely good or bad depending on... the moon maybe...

Two French players see red for nasty WWE double tackle

Too bad it's all we get from the french U20. I v watched some "highlights vids" and they seem to produce some beautiful rugby.

Ireland are now the second best rugby team in the world

As happy as I am for Ireland I don't see them as the second best team in the world.
They have a splendid team play and organisation. But any SH team, England, or even France, could beat them with power, speed or flair on a good day.
Thing is, for Ireland their doesn't seem to be good or bad days. And it's quite impressive as such.

True. And when France misses at least two opportunities to kill the game, it doesn't surprise anyone :-)
Still, kudos to their defense. I don't know what the english could have done in the end of this game. They needed a converted try. The "irish way" wasn't an option. They had to go thru but could not.

Not at every single game. Sometimes it's just the opposite.
Remember this absurd Wales-France neverending game?
They had Slimani (illegaly) replacing Atonio to win this last scrum.

And he scored some nice tries for France to.

Former back myself I m in the same position... But even if I understand your point of view, it would seem pretty unfair to merely drop him. At least he should be given a chance to adapt. Wich I believe he did during this crunch.

Regarding Beauxis... well I guess we won't have to discuss his case very longer. He was never the first choice of the coach. And clearly not a long term option. But its kinda sad to see him underperform like that. One of those many good Top 14 players who seem paralysed wearing blue. Look for the "Beauxis' day" video on youtube...

I wasn't so sure about Brunel's decision to maintain the same team that won against Italy. It appears it was a good idea after all!

Funny how most UK media say that the english are liable for their loss while most french media describe a deserved win by Les Bleus.

To me the french lacked offensive - and set piece - efficiency, badly, but still managed to win with guts, power and discipline. Their defense was outstanding again. They overpowered the english. That's all. And as Scotland showed last week, the English are unable to perform when overpowered. They are used to be the big bully of the school.

I'v read that the english players are tired due to the Lion's tour. That's quite funny too. It's the usual french excuse (agenda of the Top14 etc)!

Misfiring France labour to crucial victory over Italy in Marseille

Same 31. Meaning the 8 banned for "inappropriate behaviour" are still out. Brunel says the one who replaced them did well enough against Italy...
