Three trials for one feat. Saturday February 22, the XV of France beat the Wales team for the first time in ten long years in Cardiff with the score of 27 to 27. “There is something very strong in living these moments. It's hell, but it's magic, that's what we're looking for”, said the new Blues coach Fabien Galthié.
Since the latter's arrival at the head of the team, after a failed World Cup, the XV of France has come back to life. The Six Nations tournament started three games ago. Result: three great victories for this young and ambitious troop. “We didn't invent anything, we did simple things, but with a lot of heart. It was this group of friends who simply won”, enthuses Captain Charles Ollivon. Next objectives: Scotland, then Ireland with, inevitably, in a corner of the head a dream of Grand Slam.
