The captain of the France team Charles Ollivon scored the first French try after a great collective movement against Ireland, this Sunday on the occasion of the second match of the VI Nations Tournament in Dublin.
Clinics, the Blues. If Fabien Galthié’s players had made an offensive festival against Italy with seven tries a week ago at the opening of the VI Nations Tournament, they were much more realistic in the first period against Ireland this Sunday in Dublin. Led to the score after a penalty from Burns, the Habs reacted well to the half-hour mark thanks to a try scored by Charles Ollivon. For their first foray into the Irish 22 meters, the French have shown that they have progressed in the passing game.
His 8th try with the Blues
Matthieu Jalibert then Damian Penaud first broke the green lines on the right side, before the essential Antoine Dupont steered the game to the other side. Well served by Gaël Fickou, the French captain Charles Ollivon could then go flatten the ball in the in-goal of the Irish. His 8th attempt with the tricolor jersey. This test transformed by Jalibert allowed the Blues to regain the advantage before the break.
