France fall to Argentina

Well what an opening to the Rugby World Cup.  France one of the hot tips for the finals and a win were beaten by Argentina 17-12.  The game was one of Argentine defence and grit versus French stodgy and repetitious play.  What happened to the French flair.  Answer it was snuffed out by Argentine belligerence.

Great thing is it has thrown the competition wide open from the start.

    Which do you think they would prefer? I guess 6 Nations would be easier although all games would have to be in Europe for that to happen.

    why not just create an america cup. Argentina, USA, Canada etc ….. that would help some more merging countries to progress and then create a mor eintersting world cup rather than what the old irish captain suggested to create a world cup B.

    Having team like France been beaten when they are expected to run directly to the next stage is what makes the beauty of the sport.

    Allez Les bleus !!!!
