Castres upset Toulon with first French Top 14 title victory in 20 years

No, they're fully alive in Ireland. And they show some of the Top14 matches. They also aired the RWC 2011 matches (not all of them).

FTD was tried at 12 and he was no good.
He's not taken because he was given a break after 3 full years opf playing non stop.

The All Blacks win the series with convincing victory over France

Guillaume, if you're french or if you can read french, try this:

So you will stop being upset for nothing.

The All Blacks win the series with convincing victory over France

Yes, you're deluded, but at first it actually looked that way.
We have a great french website named Le Rugbynistere, and they went through the whole match very closely and studied the way the referee Joubert acted toward both teams.
The outcome was Joubert made mistakes but not more against the French than against the All Blacks.
They used 20 referees, both French and foreign to do the study, and they got the outcome validated by Joel Jutge, who's french and now the world head of the referees.
So we can believe what they said.
This was possible because one of the webmasters is a rugby referee himself, so he has contacts within the refereeing world.

I hope France will be first of their pool in 2015 and so avoid the ABs in the quarters.

Christophe, could you please make an effort and write in english, like i do. This is an international website so English is the language to be used.

I agree players management is very poor, but i disagree, it's not the end for some french players. I'm not that pessimistic ;)

Michalak is injured again, and at the same shoulder as the last time 3 months ago.
So the third test will be with Lopez or Tales as 10.
The issue with this player is that the head coach refuses to say why he keeps selecting him. When asked by the medias, he's making up things.
He decided to leave Trinh Duc to rest for this tour, as he has planned to try several new players. At least, that's something i agree with (to try new players).
Parra was also injured (less seriously than Michalak) so he was not taken either for the tour.
I read the ABs had only 3 days together before the first match, when you could see France had a chance to win if they had not made so many mistakes.
About this second test, this was simply a lesson of rugby by the ABs. There's not much to add.
I hope the third test will see the French trying things and not being afraid of taking risks, as they're so much better when they dare. I read Hansen is going to start new players so we could do something...but Carter should play.

New Zealand come up trumps in hard-fought first Test against France

Dimitri Yachivili is not taken anymore in the national team because he will be too old for the next world cup. he's giving palce for younger ones.
Morgan Parra is injured, wing Vincent Clerc is injured too, and wing Alexis Palisson is getting surgery for a recurrent problem at one hand (he's getting the benefit of the june month off + the holidays before the start of the next season).
