“The XV of France is capable” of winning the Six Nations tournament


France faces Scotland in rugby this Friday evening at 9 p.m. At stake: a possible victory in the Six Nations tournament for the Blues, on condition of winning the match by at least 21 points apart and registering four tries. “This team is capable of doing it,” said Bernard Laporte, Friday night on Europe 1.

INTERVIEWThe XV of France has the opportunity to win the Six Nations tournament for the first time since 2010 this Friday evening after the match against Scotland (9 p.m.). But for that, the victory will not be enough for the Blues of rugby. Coach Fabien Galthié’s men will have to win with a minimum margin of 21 points and score at least four tries to lift the trophy. “It will not be easy but this team is capable of doing it,” said Bernard Laporte, the president of the French Rugby Federation (FFR), on Friday evening on Europe 1.

“I’m confident”

“We compete for these matches,” continued the former coach of the XV of France. “Like any supporter of the France team, I am very excited to see this match and I am confident too.” “I think our team can do it,” he said, while acknowledging that “the Scotland team were a good team”.

To get this victory in the competition, the Blues can draw inspiration from their last performance against Wales (32-30), said Bernard Laporte. “When Paul Willemse was sent off, I didn’t think this team would be able to turn things around,” he admitted. “We were led by the score and outnumbered. And there, paradoxically, an effect was created. They got hold of themselves, tightened up …” For the president of the FFR, no doubt, “it will be necessary to do the same thing against Scotland for 80 minutes if we want to meet this challenge “. A very nice challenge for a young team with an average age of 26 years.
