Six Nations Tournament: France will win it if ...


Contrary to popular belief, a simple victory for the XV of France this Saturday against Ireland will not be enough to win the Tournament.

For the moment, the victory of the French team in the Six Nations Tournament - the first in 10 years - is only a sketch.

Three selections can still claim the final victory: Ireland, England and France.

In a competition where these three contenders have all abandoned their Grand Slam hopes by each conceding a defeat, the final sprint is very undecided.

Mathematically, Ireland remains the best placed with 14 points.

Follow the XV of the Rose and the Blues with 13 points each.

In this three-way match, victory could be played on the difference in points scored in the match.

Score as many points as possible

If the men of the French coach Fabien Galthié overcome the Irish (Saturday 9:05 pm, France 2), this success may not be enough.


Because shortly before (Saturday 5:45 p.m.), the English should make short work of the Italians, already crushed last Saturday in Dublin (50-17).

Against Ireland, the Habs will therefore have to do as well as the English against Italy, namely an enhanced victory (a bonus is definitely acquired after four registered tries) with a maximum of points.

To summarize, the teammates of the captain of the XV of France Charles Ollivon, who come out of a convincing victory in repair against Wales (38-21), therefore know their roadmap knowing that at the kick-off on Saturday at Stade de France, they will know the result of England: achieve a full card by scoring as many points as possible.

The number: 5.

The XV of France has won a place to climb to fifth in the world rankings World Rugby published on Monday after its 38-21 victory over Wales.

The standings are still dominated by world champion South Africa, followed by New Zealand and England, vice-world champion.

Ireland, future opponent of the Blues is 4th.
