The thing is that Fofana seems to have lost his mojo and Bastareaud is alone in the middle. French wingers never get quality ball. Would it be better with another partnership in the centers? Can the fullback join more in the attack? Or the problem lies elsewhere with poor strategic decision or coaching. Seriously, i'm going to say it again on this forum, PSA's reign as French coach is not glorious. Really hope things get better for RWC, because french fans deserve better rugby.
Got to give him credit, he's a big man. But how many offloads we see from him in this clip? Some could argue no one's running supporting lines around him on this year's french team. Big hitter, but it seems he cannot keep the play alive after his barnstorming runs. Also, defensively, especially against Ireland, most of his big hits were on Sexton. Watch full game of him, he's not so quick to get to the line. He could be putted in a much better environnement, just watch him play with Toulon, but this French under PSA is just sad to watch.
