As an Englishman this is a disaster, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching France play. What a team.
Come back stronger dear neighbour !
As a French I appreciate your comment. I believe England has a bit of bad luck on some actions explaining the score. Now, I am sure Engalnd will bounce back fast. Rugby needs strong England and strong France to be at it's best
As a Frenchman, William, I want to tell you : Thank you for your fair play ! England for ever
As a French and a rugby fan, I am obviously happy with this performance in the temple of rugby.
Let's stay humble, let's not forget that 4 years ago we lost 44-8 to the English. The road is still long before the World Cup.
We hope that our English cousins will come back stronger for the revenge, every team and generation has known these moments.
Bravo les bleus !
@Derek merci pour les conseils !
@Derek thank you daddyy
@Derek Très bonne correction, pour être parfait tu aurais pu écrire "the revenge" et non 'the revenge". Un apostrophe est différent d'un guillemet.
@Derek Euh, non... le "a" avant "rugby fan" est parfaitement bon; le "the" devant "revenge" est fautif - en anglais, on n'utilise JAMAIS l'article devant les noms indénombrables. Je m'étonne un peu que vous ne signalez pas l'erreur la plus flagrante; on ne dit pas "a French", ça n'existe pas; on dit "a Frenchman". (je suis anglais, donc il est bien possible que j'ai fait là quelques petites erreurs de français, mais vous pouvez me faire confiance quand il s'agit de ma langue maternelle 😁)
The temple of rugby is Eden Park. That's why there is a clothing brand with same name.
Every time i think Dupont is the best we'll ever see of a rugby player he still get better. What an absolute monster.
Actually he wasn't in a good day.
@Arnaud Plante that's even more insane imo ahahaha
C'est encore plus dingue de se dire qu'il fait des perf qui restent hyper clean même quand il est pas dans son jour. Il a effectivement été moins excellent que d'autres jours mais honnêtement on peut pas dire qu'il était dans un mauvais jour... Rien que son jeu au pied...
Dupont is a world class 9. He's good with his hands and he's good with his feet too. But, above all, his vision and quick mind are his best attributes imho
Dupont looks like "a freak" athlete....already comparisons with our legend Dan Carter. Aaron Smith (who has been awesome for us) recons Dupont is up there with the greatest players
@JRM C. Pas dans son jour? 😂 Il a été à la baguette tout le temps! Sa rapidité de décision, ses passes millimétrées toujours au joueur mieux placé, sa vista, ses pieds. C'est moins spectaculaire mais il ne faut pas dire n'importe quoi les gars! Antoine a fait un match de maestro, en vrai leader.
*Une performance historique ! Bravo les Bleus, Vive la France* ! 🇫🇷
Ah il est là ! Dépêchez vous commissaire Juve ! Fantômas va encore s'échapper ! 😂🤣👍
Je t'aurai Fantomas !
On a tué Lord MC Crashley !!!!
La última vez que ví a Francia jugar así, fue en los 80, rugby champán le decían. Serge Blanco, posiblemente la mayor expresión de glamour de ese equipo. Hoy vemos a Ramos, que estuvo sencillamente s-u-p-e-r-l-a-t-i-v-o. Ojalá podamos ver más este tipo de rugby, glamour, sutil pero a la vez brutal.
Por el lado de Eng. fué solo una mala noche. Tienen recursos para llegar al mundial y como candidatos.
Pero este es el momento de saludar a Francia y felicitar SU momento.
Saludos desde Argentina.
Gracias senor Javier.
Soy frances pero a mi me gusta mas la manera de jugar de mi equipo que sus numerosas victorias estos ultimos anos. Esperemos que puedan seguir asi hasta la copa del mundo, se encuentren con los Pumas en la final, como en futbol, y luego que gane el mejor !
Champagne, c'était vraiment ça, ce match!
L'équipe d'Argentine va être basée en Bretagne à la Baule pour les quatre premières semaines avec des matchs à Nantes au stade de La Baujoire.
Septembre va être merveilleux!🇦🇷🇫🇷
what a classy comment ! Lots of love from France
Historical week-end for us:
- U20: England 7 - 42 France
-England 10 - 53 France
-Shaun Edwards smiled
😂😂 I was like: « oh no! Not that again.. » but you made my day!!!
And I had to go back and look at it by myself....and you are right!
he is traitor
@Mark Smith maybe he don't like brexit 🤭
95-17 sacre bleu !
the French did not celebrate this crushing victory outrageously... there is something special about this team, I really like it, it's quiet strength!
Peu importe si on ne gagne pas le tournoi cette année, cette victoire légendaire contre les Anglais est déjà un incroyable accomplissement en soi.
Tout comme l'arbitre anglais en final olympique de rugby féminine a Tokyo 2020 alors que les françaises avaient éliminé l'Angleterre en demi et pourtant l'Angleterre finira par battre la France en final. l'Angleterre a gagné cette fois sur le match contre l'Irlande le mois dernier !
Sans mettre en doute la capacité de l'équipe irlandaise mais face a une bonne équipe les rares dite "erreur" d'arbitrage a des conséquences dramatique pour l'équipe qui en n'est victime ( a l'accumulations ) . pourtant cela enlève en rien les nombreuses décisions arbitrale ( des britanniques ) hasardeuse particulièrement en faveur des anglais jouent contre la France ou en nous enlevant des victoires du tournoi ou en nous enlevant des victoires du tournoi en Grand Chelem ! C'est pour cela que je me sens l'obligation d'intervenir , non le match stipendié du tournoi 2023 c'est contre l'Irlande ET l'Angleterre et vous , par votre commentaire ou par bêtise ou naiveté ou complicité vous chercher a laisser croire que l'ont ce contente du peu . Croyez moi en France surtout et même dans le monde du rugby des gens sans a perçoit très bien. Donc la France a déjà perdu le Grand Chelem ,le monde du rugby en 2023 sera témoin d'une victoire ou non de la France du tournoi des "6" nations de l'édition 2023 !!
Non la victoire n'est pas incroyable c'est l'humiliation qui est incroyablement satisfaisante 😂
that's easy for you to say.
C est une équipe belle à voir jouer.
ou comment mettre la PATAY aux anglais ... bataille de Patay juin 1429
As someone who grew up in the 80s/90s it's great to see France back to playing beautiful rugby again. We need that wierd mercurial rugby that only France seem to be capable of.
Great call!!! long overdue...French Flair, combined with brutal forwards...wow
English fair play is something you can be proud of!
@Pierre DUCHAMP Only in Rugby... 😉
hasnt really got them very far has it!!!
I used to tell my rugby playing son about French flair in the 80s and 90s. Blanco and Sella! Glad champagne rugby is back!
haven’t enjoyed a six nations match like this in a long time and no red or yellow cards even better
Good point. For me, maybe the England-Scotland 2019 is ahead
Indeed, even if our best enemies (and friends, to be fair) were not at their best, no red or even yellow card in a such a game is enjoyable. Hope to see England back to their usual level soon, because they deserve it!
@doktoil makresh only after the world cup not before dude... 😉
Agree. The only disappointment was France kicking the ball out at full time when they could of scored another try. England need to go and play against Romania, Tonga and Latvia
Painful for an Englishman but well played France. You were magnificent.
It's great to see that the English supporters are so magnanimous in defeat
Well done to them from an Irish man
English fair play is something you can be proud of!
I would not be happy to be English and be aware that my only chance to regain some pride is in a match in Ireland where Irish will play for the grand slam...
Honestly makes me admire you guys, to show this kind of character.
As a New Zealand supporter, the speed, mobility and skill of the French pack is both awe inspiring and frightening. And I can't offer any more plaudits for the french halfback that he hasnt already received. Masterful.
Englands opening kick off was actually illegal....and that was the last thing they got away with for 80 minutes.
as a French supporter I say that this victory is beautiful but it is misleading, the French systematically return the ball to the opposing camp, with southern nations it will be ammunition, they will keep the ball and attack by hand. so i say that this world cup will be as usual, france in the final or semi-final and defeat against a southern nation, with also the help of the referee... as usual...
I confess that I found France mesmerising. The play was incredible
And yes, I am English. My mother in law was a massive rugger fan. I think she would be impressed with France - yes, she passed away a few years ago.
May She rest in Peace and happiness.
God bless her.
As a former rugby player, what a fantastic game, but also happy with the comments, reflecting modesty, weighing, respect, qualities that make this sport great.
You've got an amazing name dude!
My late father, a former rugby player in the French Navy, must be smiling in heaven. Bravo les bleus.
Un match de légende 😁, tout mon respect pour l'Angleterre qui a de grosse difficultés en moment.
Vive la France 🇫🇷🇫🇷
"Tout mon respect pour l'Angleterre qui a de grosse difficultés en CE moment" Mon cul oui!! Si c'est eux qui nous avaient mis 53 points dans la gueule, ils n'auraient pas fini de nous chier dessus!!
@Louis Guerin Déjà ils ne se sont pas gêné après notre défaite contre l'Irlande.
Miam le rosbif était délicieux ! Un régal 😋😘🇫🇷
@Louis Guerin Faut bien le reconnaître. Si la France n'existait pas, que deviendraient leurs tabloïds?
@Louis GuerinLa France est tellement forte qu'elle n'a pas besoin d'être arrogante comme son adversaire du jour peut l'être.
Magnifique exploit, inscrit à jamais dans l'histoire de ce sport ! Je suis fier de cette équipe, courage aux Anglais parce que les Irlandais la semaine prochaine chez eux c'est pas un cadeau, surtout après cette défaite
Les Irlandais sont meilleurs que les Français, et ils l'ont démontré récemment (on évite une danse tellement on a été dominé), alors effectivement, bon courage à cette équipe qui prend l'eau de partout.
Les Irlandais vont leur faire leur fete.
Inscrit dans l'histoire du rugby français, ça suffira. On y trouve aussi le 62-13 encaissé en 2015 contre les Blacks... Profitons juste du moment 😉
I'm still astonished by this result. France made this English squad look like a tier 2 nation, I knew the French could win but I never expected a 53-10 against England.
PS : you forgot Flament's second try.
French team didn't make them look like tier 2 nation, they are now a tier 2 nation, they reminded me a lot our french team before galthié era and Genge reminded me Guilhem guirado, he will have to be strong in his head for the next months
I remember seeing a prediction of France by 4 points and I thought that was realistic since the match was at Twickenham and the way France have played against Italy and Scotland. The fact that it was by nearly 44 points just shows how much I failed to appreciate the distance England still need to cover.
@jarod quintillius Battle of Pattay remember englishman
That last try was incredible !!
Perfect combination of substitutes
without Dupont and Ntamack !
They scored one very similar in the autumn internationals
Oui déjà en elle-même la combinaison est remarquable. Mais là en plus elle a été exécutée avec une vitesse, une précision et une maitrise collective vraiment sublimes. J'en ai encore des frissons.
Englishman here - well played France, what a performance! Sad for England but it's Frances time now. Can't wait to see them play in the world cup.
they will lose
@Mark Smith I reckon they will win the World Cup 2023 !.
Maybe WE will lose our World cup, but sure this England team will not win…😂
Stick to soccer, mate.
Rugby folk possess a little more grace. Have you ever played it?
No words... it's just one of the most beautiful definition of RUGBY, so many different tries, different combinations in a single match!
To be shown in all Rugby schools around the world!
France are looking ridiculously dangerous.
This is one hell of a French team. From South Africa 🇿🇦
At that moment, Ireland, South Africa and France are in "top positions" for winning the World cup but... Until september, things can change...!
Good Luck and hoping for an amazing world cup 🏉🇿🇦🇫🇷🇮🇪🇳🇿🇦🇷🏴🏴🏴🇮🇹🇦🇺🇯🇵🇫🇯🇹🇴🇼🇸🇵🇹🇨🇱🇬🇪🇳🇦🇺🇾🇷🇴
Well done France. You are amazing. You deserved the win. By the way - Keep up the great work, meaning "Keep on playing as a TEAM. Greetings all the way from NZ.
Bravo France, what a stunning performance filled with all of the very best of French rugby. England down but not out! From a Wallabies fan
This is why I love this sport! I am French and to see the comments of our English and English-speaking friends on this Match is quite simply Magic no matter what the adversity ! The beautiful game is king ! God save the KING!
I read the amount of applause by the English commentators herewith and the French warm encouragement for a quick recovery of their opponent are why I am a rugby fan.
This is a gentlemen sport and a game and it MUST remain so.
@Francis Couderq Very well said..from an Irish man.
Springbok here! As good as it gets! Only the French can produce this! The WC is going to be a monster!
Depuis ces dernières années, j'ai constaté de nombreuses fois que quand le XV de France était bon et menait dans la première mi-temps, il s'effondrait progressivement dans la seconde pour perdre à la fin. Donc, hier au début de la seconde période, je me demandai à quel moment ils allaient craquer. Et bien je suis resté sur mon cul en voyant jouer comme jamais un XV de France contre l'Angleterre. Ce match restera dans les annales du rugby Français et je suis certain qu'il va hanter de nombreuses années le XV de la rose. Merci à nos bleus et au staff pour ce match d'anthologie dont je ne me suis pas encore remis.
ca fait presque trois qu'ils ne craquent plus faut se réveiller lol
Wow that moment at 5:39 when the French 8 goes in for the counter ruck and is backed by his teammates behind him. Such a simple yet powerful moment
This moment is what this French team is all about
Marcus Smith like a little child getting pushed around. Guy is an embarrassment.
@A PK he was about 5m away in the back line at this point, but OK. 🤷♂️
One of the most beautiful match illustrating the French Flair ! As a French man, I'm so proud of this exceptional team and their staff headed by Fabien Galthié!
As an Englishmen, I'm obviously not happy about the result BUT I've enjoyed the French resurgence over the last few years. They're playing some great rugby again.
no french flair, it's just hard work , je suis français il n' y a pas de "french flair" il y a beaucoup de travail surtout, on n 'est pas des clébards
Mate I'm not even mad, France are just pure class. Want them to lift the cup
Thanks dude. Gameplay with flair is always nice to be watched but laws are laws. Honestly even if show was nice there were some wrong calls from ref. I know ref bashing should stop but here I saw some questionable calls even if I am french. last try was beautiful but forward pass all days. Have a look on the line ! Also should have been a TMO check on Penaud run on Fickou kick to make sure he is behing Fickou etc etc... I am angry enough against frequent wrong calls against us not to acknowledge there were some questionable decisions against England here ;)
@Thierry M they were all fine dw. The pass was not forward becouse of momentum
Wait for all blacks
Who? They couldn't even beat England last November.
France and Ireland will hammer them.
You're a class act mate
The most surprising in this game is that it seems France never wanted to stop to put England to the sword. Until the last second it seems they wanted to destroy England
Not really. England never showed up to that game.
Playing to the end is respecting your opponent.
it's called respect. Best way to sepect your opponent is by giving 100%
Every player need to play their best rugby till the end no matter the score, regardless whether you loosing or winning. Because it's important to respect the opponent, and it is important to respect the spectators who paid for this. This is Rugby's values. Brutality, Strength, but fair play, respect and honour.
Très belle prestation du XV de France. Une équipe incroyable, un french flair hors norme, des joueurs excellents. Très beau à voir jouer et je pense qu'aujourd'hui c'est la meilleure équipe du monde.
J’habite juste en face de l’Angleterre ,et j’ai hurlé ma joie,en regardant les falaises 😊
Et elles ont dû sûrement s'écrouler... ?!!!
At last, Twickenham is no longer a doom temple for us.
France were on fire, they changed their coaching team, picked lots of young players and we have become a very efficient team.
Sad to see fans leaving earlier…regardless of the score.
A losing team needs more support than a winning one
This is the end of a cycle. England will come back, worst ennemies but best friends. See you soon!
Our french team was in your place 5-6 years ago, with huge difficulties. You'll rebuild a brilliant team and come back stronger. I'm sure of that.
I left early one team didn't show up
@Yann Sarajevo oui, mais avec un entraîneur sorti d'un épisode des "brigades du tigre", et une vision du rugby de cette époque, ce n'était pas étonnant...😏
I am French. I know we should stop ref shaming but some wrong calls on this match sincerly. Last try is beautiful but clearly forward if you look the line where the ball leaves ahnds and where ball is caught... (I know what people would say inertia, hands move blabla etc.. BS all days) Also Penaud run was close to be offside on Fikou kick and this should have been monitored by TMO at least ... Once it was in our favor after many unfair calls former past years so fair enough but should be noticed. I noticed that ref often are less strict toward a team playing a fast and enthousiatic rugby as they did with ABs for years earlier... More and more it seems ref a quite focused on securing the "show" more than applying laws strictly
Leggendari. Mai visto a memoria mia una velocità così potente dai contrasti.
La vittoria è motivo di festa in Francia. Ero a La Rochelle durante la partita, è stato pazzesco. Spero che l'Italia continui ad alzare il proprio livello. Avete spinto molto bene la Francia e l'Irlanda durante questo torneo, è stato bello da vedere
Thank you, Italian rugby is going good improvement
Très fier de nos joueurs français et respect à l'Angleterre 🇫🇷🏴
England didnt play a crappy game. It's just that France played a fantastic game...
The best referring I've seen in a long time with lots of advantage play that supported in keeping the game flowing
Sublime rugby by the French. It`s wonderful to see.
That last try was simply magnifique from the French.
Ooh, and it seems an irish is saying so ? 😉
@Jipé Vandervaere Love the French except when playing Ireland of course they're back to their best form which is a joy to watch.
la perf de ramos... incroyable, et ce dernier essai magnifique!
"That was a humiliation". Les commentateurs anglais sont tellement fair play. Je les adore. Mais l'Angleterre reste une très grande nation du rugby mondial. Le XV de la rose n'acceptera pas une seconde "humiliation" comme celle-là. Galthié et sa magnifique équipe sauront garder les pieds sur terre. On ne se lasse pas de revoir ce résumé. Waouh, quelle beauté ! Rdv à la coupe du monde.
Eventually Damian Penaud is very kind with the audience!
At Twickenham this year - and similarly at Murrayfield last year - he kindly duplicates a try in this corner just in case some people miss the first one.
He had almost time to sign a few autographs while running
Beyond the result, I really admire the sportsmanship between the 2 teams at the end.
No one is talking about how great the referee was, thank you Sir!!!
Because good or bad ref, France is sky high
Usually people only talk about refs performances in close games
Alldritt was outstanding today. What a player!!
His 1st half was superb.
For me, Man of the Match.
But all French team did really well.
Dupont has no flaws.
England needs to bounce back asap but I'm afraid they'll need some years to develop new players...
I still have chills what match what coach what team of France 🇲🇫💪❤🙏
The last try was absolutely majestic. A simple thing of beauty.
I am a Frenchman. yes it is beautiful but forward pass all days. The pass start right on the line and Peanaud receive it 1 meter after the line... I know that there is a new rule , inertie of ball due to run, hands move etc etc.. but according to me all of this is pure BS. Point A on the picth where the ball leave hands to point B on the pitch where ball is caught , B not behind A : forward pass
Regarde la réception de balle du 15 anglais sur leur essai, il réceptionne le ballon devant le ruck alors que le relayeur lift le ballon et fait la passe derrière ce dernier, il y a donc en avant. Mais comme je l’ai déjà dit 48/10 je prends aussi. 🤤
@Al Amical oui possible ça peut être en avant j'avoue ... on a pas tous les angles et il faut se méfier des effets d'optique. Bizarrement il y a eu beaucoup moins de TMO sur ce match. D'ailleurs ça n'a pas aidé les anglais qui étaient carbo et auraient eu besoin de souffler un peu :)
Les 43 points d’écarts c’est pas l’arbitre qui les a mis de toute façon.
L’arbitre a une réelle influence quand le score est serré, la… il y a même pas photo.
@Al Amical oui on est d'accord. L'équipe la plus forte a gagné quoiqu'il arrive.
French supporter here. At some point in my life, living abroad, I had to watch rugby on the BBC (and certainly did not regret it, loved it actually). I shall ever remember the great Jeremy Guscott, sitting as a commentator at the time, as brilliant an analyst as he had been with ball in hands. Once he recalled one of his coaches from his junior years who had a postulate for the game never to be forgotten. ‘In rugby’ he said’ there is no substitute for pace’. I think the French today have given a little demonstration of the truth in that. This being said, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that England will recover soon, even for the World Cup. They always do.
On peut être fier de nos Bleus !! 🇫🇷 Courage aux Anglais 🏴
Jeez, what a game?! Absolute destruction!
Congratulations, France! A well deserved win.
Quel match ! quel rugby !
Par contre j'ai été surpris de voir les joueurs anglais toujours se plaindre ou demander des comptes à l'arbitre.🤔🤔
@Alte Kameraden probably couldn’t believe what was happening. Shock and awe. 🍻
As a french supporter this is sad for the English Team because they have such great players and potential, courage to them. But a great victory for the French team
England's humiliation is an understatement of this great France performance. Come on you all, this is the trend rugby is taking in modern times. Any team can beat any team. Congrats to both teams. The best team won.
Let us French not have short memories before we excessively blame our greatest enemies, the English. We have just emerged from a ten-year rugby slump. We got out of the hole because the FFR started a revolution in the management of the French national rugby team. A coach free to manage and recruit his staff. Thanks again to Fabien Galthié for having the absolutely brilliant idea of seeking out Shaun Edwards. What a difference since Shaun took charge. But also, thanks to good understanding between the FFR and the LNR (the governing body of the PRO league) on the selection and availability of players for the national team. The coach has a base pool of 42 players to train and set up opposition games with, before making his selection and releasing non-chosen players to return to their clubs. Even the national team staff will discuss with each club's staff about the strengths and weaknesses of each player. Ronan O'Gara at La Rochelle was blown away by the intelligence of this good relationship.
Please, English friends, do not lose hope. With good work at the helm of the RFU, we can hope to see you quickly return to your best level. Not that beating you so badly and humiliating you on your own turf, so arrogant, is not so enjoyable for us French. But the French national rugby team will be so good that if the English national team is good, it will be even more enjoyable. Nonetheless, it's still enjoyable to beat you with a 40-point difference. So come back quickly, but not too quickly, so we can savor it for a few tournaments 😂
The beautiful game of rugby played as it should be.Speed ball handling and great team spirit. Wonderful to watch. I am a new zealand Maori and have great hopes for France in the world cup if they continue on like this. Maybe their 1st World Cup. Best of luck as we kiwis don't really have faith in our coach
I have never seen an English forward pack receive a tremendous beating. Congratulations to the French, very good game 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
Brutal showing from France. Wow. They are looking like serious World Cup contenders along with Ireland. Really amazing class from a side brimming with talent. The biggest deal though is their mindset, the old mental fragility of days gone by seems to have been well and truly buried. If the Boks don't win the next World Cup this is the side I would most like to see win it with Ireland a close second.
Even the most one-eyed rosbif fan had to look at France and think “what a team!”
Keep up be strong everybody, spreading good vibes is never enough, wishing you everybody a great weekend of rugby entertainment in further 190 countries world wide like true Olympic champions. ..yeah, what a wonderful world this could be, having fun watching young boys happy performing.. we are working in progress friends, you are doing a great job, fans are always here to backup you champs
The last try is just perfection. Ball is given at the right moment, at the right place, players do the good moove, to focus the defence and allow Penaud cross the line.
Not a big play by a single player, but all the player, even those who don't touch the ball, do the right thing at the right time. The perfection.
Well done France definitely the benchmark in world rugby along with Ireland. This years WC is going to be amazing
that was a cray match!! Hope England will be back at their best soon but as a Frenchman this was amazing!
What a display by France, thoroughly deserved that win. Pleasure to watch when they’re in that form
*oh, he is human.* My favorite moment of these highlights. Yes, they're humans, that's what makes France even more terrific !
Congrats to our guys, good game England, just rise again like a phoenix when the time is right. Hope you have a big time during the world cup. It's close but you can do it. Hope to see you in better shape in our next crunch!
What a game by France, i still can't believe it
it's fascinating to see how much the English and the French respect each other in rugby unlike football, still a lot of effort to be made on this side…
As a French, i am pleased of the performance and the victory, but we must be modest and not forget how many matches we lost before...It remains a long way.
the last french try was so beautiful the whole sequence wow they deserve it
France is playing inspired rugby! Fantastic to watch.
Ofc it was a great match. But look back to France years ago.. We waited for this since many years. It took a while from a team, and also a Nation to live in world rugby ranking again. And i appreciate even more the humility and respect shows by players. We know this. A hard path will start for England, and it’s not funny at all. How great it is to see France back now after decades of defeats, intern problems.. Respect the kicker, and respect the opponent first. As a french, i just can’t realize where we are today.. What a come back. And i’m not speaking a this Twickenham vict in particular. I speak for the WHOLE work done by Galthié and these men. Love to all, don’t be salty ❤
True, and we must never forget what the All Blacks did to France a few years back! Rugby is the team game to beat ALL others. No Prima Donnas earning millions; no mass sponsorships, and for the most part followers who know and love the game (I exclude the feral English supporters of a couple seasons back!)
Fabulous french side, the team spirit and trust they have is beautiful to watch
Individual talent and team spirit at its peak. We French people should be aware it's this year or nether.
Lots of work from Galthié to buid this squad. They seem like a group of friends playing together. It looks so easy and elegant.
Of course I want them to win but somehow in the long run it will do justice to the game all rugby fan love: grace over brut force.
It was a great win for France in every sense because all their tries were good tries. They played champagne rugby.
Le 15 du coq 🐓 a retrouvé son jeu exceptionnellement excuté durant les tests matchs d automne. Les 3 premiers matchs des français durant ce six nations ont été inquiétants au niveau de la qualité de jeu , et là avec england, j ai assisté à une rencontre où tous les panels de la rugbystique ont été mise en œuvre de manière magistrale, et le score,même si il est écrasant ,n à rien à voir, avec mon analyse.
Merci les gars.
Il faut du crédit aux équipes en face. Si on a joué plus médiocrement lors de nos 2 premiers match face aux italiens et aux irlandais, c'est ar ils ont été très très bons.
@Un pseudo pas comme les autres
Une équipe performante n empêche pas obligatoirement de développer ton propre jeu , i played rugby during twenty year
The French are playing the best rugby in the world.
As an England Fan hats off the the French. Defo the better team in every aspect. That being said, everyone loves to hate England Rugby but many times in history has a team suffered a humiliating defeat, hit rock bottom and come back to win it all. If any team is capable of this I believe its this England team. We have all the pieces in place, we just need to get used to the new management style after years of stagnation under Eddie Jones. I believe better days are ahead for England Rugby! Hopefully we can have a rematch in Paris in the World Cup and turn the tables. Fun times ahead for World Rugby!
Defeats are useful for being humble, learn a lot and then bounce back. No doubt England will, I just hope you will do it before the WC. A proud frenchman.
Respect to England, we French know what it is to be humiliated and that bitter taste we had it for over a decade and that was not long ago. For us French It makes this victory even more meaningful but we do not forget we were that English team not long ago. Everything is about cycles, so yes England will rise again. :)
As much as we love to beat you, especially in Twickenham, we hate to see you drowning like this...
I don't believe you guys can solve everything before WC but I do hope English rubgy will come back stronger so we can have a proper crunch, good luck.
Think you mean hit rock bottom, come back and then lose at the end to South Africa ;)
To be honest you are atm missing key players, especially in the backline and at 9 to be a consistent top team. Front 8 should do better you have some great players. I don't understand why Ford hasn't played in ages for England, he was by far your best player for years I loved that guy.. England should do better clearly, they lost their confidence and it will come back, but I still think that they currently miss that bit of extra talent to be top3. Before you had prime Ben Youngs and Farrell, Tuilagi, Jonathan Joseph, Watson, Daily, May, Ford... and not even talking about your forwards. A great generation and you clearly don't have that anymore. I mean France has a better pack and that backline... Dupont (can't remember a more complete player), Ntamack (and Jalibert), Danty, Fickou, Penaud, Villiere all absolute world class players
What a classic to French players, they didn’t even celebrated winning game….they feel bad to englishmen…Big respect!!!!
12:30 His team must pass the fifty points so that we can see Galthie smile...
I just love how the stadium sings "swing low" at the beginning! Heart warming!
As a Frenchman i am so happy ........The best match of the french team since a long time. And i really appreciate the fair play of the comments below. England will come back, sure. Probably not during the next WC, but the great teams will never die
My respects to the English team, and well played to our team.
We're lucky to have this man, so quick in decisions 🙏🙌
that last try at full speed, wow! 🤩
France are formidable. Well played.
Un match de LEGENDE. Tout simplement.
Wonderful to watch. France looked fluid and dangerous, although England are really bad and quite honestly don’t appear to have that many world class players. Always happy to see any side with Itoje and Farrell take a beating. As for Smith being the second coming….well unfortunately it looks like he is the second coming of Cipriani.
Sweet to watch, thank you France!
Sublime performance by France 🇫🇷. They are looking like a polished outfit . Absolute pleasure to watch
The french centre pairing of Danty and Fickou is too good. I can’t see any backline beating them physically.
Would think the Boks centre pairing, whomever they choose, will smash them physically..
@Gary Lakey I respect that. Not sure Am vs Fickou would go too well. If the boks played Esterheuzen and DeAllende, that would be good.
@Gary Lakey smash them !? No. By the way France win the last game against the boks.
@Red-one yes, with the help of an early red card to the Boks and a referee. France just about won in the final stages of the game. Result stands yes but not true reflection of the game. France won't have half the opportunities as this against England with Bok defensive system. Also what counted against the Boks was their flyhalf problems at the time. France would play a full strength Bok team in the WC if they come across each other. France like an open game like when playing against the ABs but against the Boks it will be more structured and very difficult for a French team to withstand.
@tomgibson _1 Yes, Esterhuizen and DeAllende play a similar sort of game so I cant see them on the field together.. Both very good inside centres..
Magnifique Match, vive les bleus, vive la France, Respect aux Anglais 👏 👏 🇫🇷 🇫🇷 🇫🇷
As a league fan i must admit to watching the odd rah-rah game. And i must say this current French side remind me of the English pack i watched destroy the Aussies in the late '60's, the 2nd rowers of their pack were big, strong, and tall and all were fast. Matter of a fact from memory i think their fastest player was Vince Karalius their big tall lock. Man they were quite a side, as i think this current French rugby side is.
Of course i was talking about the English Rugby LEAGUE side. About i think the finest League side i ever saw.
Congratulations France 🇫🇷..really enjoyable watching this running 🏃 rugby.
Excellent ball handling from the French. Often times in French rugby this does not refer to the rugby ball, but in this case, it does.
Très mauvais week end pour nos meilleurs ennemis : Angleterre / France en U20 : 7 - 42, puis 10 - 53. Quel dommage que le dernier match ne nous oppose pas aux Irlandais rencontrés trop tôt dans le tournoi. Mais profitons de ces performances, et réjouissons nous que les deux meilleures équipes du monde soient européennes, en ce moment. Hâte à la coupe du Monde.
Score pire pour les moins de 18 femmes. Une raclée aussi à ajouter.
This is amazing. There used to be a time when England dominated European rugby ....n it all became boring. European rugby is now very exciting. Love it. Congratulations to France. To England: better luck next time.
As french I m always proud when my team won England. But English people fair-play is impressive, gentleman even in the defeat. English are our best enemies and we love this relationship
Flament’s second try is missing 😅
Not enough space to fit all the French tries in. Would need extended, extended highlights.
Un des plus beaux, en plus 😉
too many tries to remember lol
Fickou is criminally underrated IMHO
In mine too.
Incredibly skilled/athletic/versatile player.
Truly a key of this French team. His value on this team is on par with the likes of Dupont's and Alldritt's.
The last French try, outstanding !
Wonderful, 15 - man rugby from France. Magnifique! Schoolboy rugby score in the 6 nations! Who would have thought?
How scary is this French team? Best rugby on the planet, and it's been a few years...
Waiting for an Irish fan to contradict you in 3... 2.... 1....
@Puntastic 😅 the verdict in a few month 😉 RWC
Yeah well, Irish intensity kinda conterfeited this french rugby. RWC will be exciting tho.
Ireland needs the referee to win against France simple as that
@Lau. E. Lmao keep crying
