▶️ Laure Sansus, missed farewells

Thus, the Les Bleues scrum-half was seriously injured for the last game of his France national team career.


❓​ How much are Fijians worth?

Despite everything, Les Bleues start as big favorites against a rival who is playing in their first World Cup.

The France team will have to compose, for the rest of the World Cup, without their scrum half Laure Sansus, victim of a torn cruciate ligament during the Crunch lost to England.


⚡ A decisive match against Fiji

The Fijians received a slap in the face against England (84-19) before reacting well against South Africa (21-17). So they have, like the Blues, a win and a loss before this morning’s game.
