France 13 – 62 New Zealand
And that, my friends, is how you play rugby.
With intent, skill, precision and nous. From 1 to 23. For 80 minutes.
An extraordinary performance, perhaps the single most dominant game ever in Rugby World Cup history.
Yes, we now know definitively this was a very flawed French side. So we don’t quite know what sort of measuring stick this was. But here’s the thing: Shag & Co unpicked the flaws. They figured it, and then the players executed it. Brilliantly.
Enjoy this one. Celebrate it.
Because in two days time, we start picking up the anxious again.
