An Ireland-France folded at half-time
After a first penalty won by the XV du Trèfle at the start of the match, the Blue quickly launched the machine after ten minutes or so. Montpellier’s Caroline Boujard scored the first French try before being imitated by Emilie Boulard.
A penalty try later, trans formed by an efficient Caroline Drouin in her role as scorer, and France was already well ahead (3-21, 21st) and seemed to be heading towards a fairly quiet victory. Two new tests by Safi N’Diaye and Cyrielle Banet further added to the bill. At halftime, nothing could worry the Blue (8-48, 40th).
The Blue have an appointment with England
The meeting then turned to the correction for Ireland. After unblocking the situation at the start of the match, Caroline Boujard signed a double to restart the tricolor machine after the break (8-43, 46th).
