Highlights: Charles Ollivon: “We are going to question ourselves”. The captain of the XV of France had strong words after his team's sad draw against Italy this Sunday (13-13). “It's paradoxical, with a positive feeling at the start of the match. We felt strong in the carried balls, the scrums. We are perhaps insisting a little too much in these sectors since we are still making progress. We came to die several times a few meters from their goal line’.


The captain of the XV of France had strong words after his team's sad draw against Italy this Sunday (13-13).


How do you explain this failure against Italy?


Charles Ollivon:

Explaining it right away is not easy.

It's paradoxical, with a positive feeling at the start of the match.

We felt strong in the carried balls, the scrums.

We are perhaps insisting a little too much in these sectors since we are still making progress.

We say to ourselves that things will eventually give up among the Italians.

But this is not the case.

We came to die several times a few meters from their goal line.

This feeling of physical domination in front was perhaps a bad feeling.

We probably erred a bit in the right proportion.

To discover

  • Ranking Tournament 6 of Nations

  • Calendar and results 6 Nations

Has something broken psychologically since the World Cup?


I don't think so, no.

But we are aware that we must go further, do better, be better.

We owe it to all those who have fervently supported us for years.

We worked hard and it didn't pay off.

We have the desire to be better.

But honestly, there's nothing broken.

Just the desire to chase away that bitter taste we have in our mouths tonight.

We are going to question ourselves, analyze this match carefully and, for the people who follow us, we can promise you that we will work hard to put out a big match in Cardiff in two weeks.
