A micro-dose of happiness in a dark time. Despite the extra-sporting affairs affecting the French XV, the Blues faced Uruguay this Wednesday, in Montevideo, for an unprecedented friendly match. They seriously imposed themselves (28-43). The game was marked by a monstrous try from Posolo Tuilagi in the second period.

Doubled with Couilloud and Tuilagi

Four days after the victory in Argentina (13-28), coach Fabien Galthié fielded a “development” team, that is to say composed of young players or inexperienced at the international level. His men did not have a few days to prepare for the meeting but they showed themselves diligently for fifty minutes, in the wake of Captain Baptiste Couilloud. The Lyonnais scored twice, like Tuilagi.
