The Ankle Tap: France defeated!

8 09 2007

GOTCHA!For the French, the unthinkable has happened. Losing the first match in the Rugby World Cup, on home soil – to Argentina. The 12-17 scoreline doesn’t reflect what a huge loss this is.
In any other pool, a team of France’s caliber losing to one of Argentina’s wouldn’t be such a big deal. But this pool has sharks. Ireland lurks, and if they beat France on September 21st, then that’s it for Les Bleus.

The Argentine defense was a veritable wall, not once did France cross the try-line. Still, the game was anyone’s France 07– and fortune favoured the brave Pumas. Both Michalak & Contepomi missed opportunities for penalties in the last 10 minutes, sealing the fate of the French.

So despite having most of the ball (a 60/40 breakdown of time), France head towards September 21 with trepidation, and a lil’ bit of hope.

Note: I got the margin right (by under 10), but the side wrong – in my Ankle Tap Tips!
