Australia complete clean sweep against France with Sydney win

Colombes, RWC in November ????

The issues in French rugby:
The powers-that-be don't care about the international players, only Top14 counts: Top 14 is forward play, kicking, defense, boring rugby.
Then the international players are asked to actually play at international level, namely the opposite way of the Top14 way of playing, hence the children at rugby schools learn defense and tackles instead of focusing on skills, so to be formatted to be future Top14 players.
You watch a match at children/teenagers level and then you compare with ta match at the same level at the same age in New Zealand for instance. if you're French you cry, children are not at the same level at all.
You can also watch the U20 at RWC this year and compare, if you're French you cry again (or scream in fury).
In number of matches or number of minutes played, French players and English players game time is similar (this is on French website Le Rugbynistere).
Then you watch NZ-England this June and compare with Australia-France. If you're french, you cry (or scream).
Then you compare the way rugby is played in Top14 matches and in Premiership matches, and you understand.
The way the Top14 matches are played is at odds with the way international matches have to be played. And that situation is killing the French national team.
In France, supporters are wondering when the French powers-that-be will realise that, wake up and act accordingly.

For RWCs, players have 2 months together before starting, hence their best results at there.
