France remains a disappointing victory with a score of 32-10 against Italy. Despite the scoreline, the Blues match was quite disappointing. Facing the Squadra Azzura without its best player, Sergio Parisse, the XV of France was unable to take the offensiv bonus point. Worse, the back line almost never managed to make a difference except the full back Scott Speeding. Both tries were scored by props. Moreover, the French conceded many stupid penalties.
Finally, France can’t be satisfied after the meeting because she lost its best wing Yohan Huget, who broke its knee ligament. To replace him, PSA has a strong choice by selecting the powerful Castrais Rémi Grosso. Nevertheless, the Tarn, arrived too late and will not play this game.
For this meeting, the French coach has made 13 replacements. Indeed, only Louis Picamoles and Noa Nakaitaci retain their place. Despite this, the team remains beautiful. The first line is slightly weakened. In the second line, we find Bernard Le Roux, which is not his preferred position. To the position of flyhalf, the controversial Rémi Talès will start. Finally, instead of Huget, it’s Guitoune who never did anything in the French team that will start
Starting XV: Dulin; Guitoune, Fickou, Fofana, Nakaitaci; (o) Talès, (m) Parra Picamoles, Ouedraogo, Nyanga; Flanquart, Le Roux; Atonio, Szarzewski (cap), Debaty.
Replacements: Kayser, Ben Arous, Mas, Maestri, Chouly, Kockott, Michalak, Bastareaud.
Unlike France, Romania has not played a match last weekend and therefore will address the meeting with more freshness. This team, which played every World Cup since 1987, never reached the final of the competition shifts.
In 2011, Romanians had fallen into a very tough group and had suffered four losses: -10 against Scotland, -35 against Argentina, -64 against England and -16 against Georgia.
The Romanians won their ticket to the World Cup thanks to their second place gained in the Six Nations B behind Georgia. Men Lyn Howells have only completed 3 points behind Georgia with 1N 8V 1D. Romanians and Georgians have shown themselves well above the other competitors.
This team, very powerful, relies heavily on a large cutting package. Many players play in France: Lazar (CO), Turashvili (Colomiers), Ion (USAP), Valentin Ursache (Oyonnax), Macovei (Colomiers), Pungea (Oyonnax), Tonita (Provence Rugby), Marius Antonescu (Tarbes) the others play, mostly in the national championship. Romanians has a very efficient kicker with Florin Vlaicu. They also have an excellent fullback with Cătălin fercu. The Saracens player had refused to go to New Zealand four years ago because his fear of flying. This year, he agreed to make a concession to participate.
Starting XV: Fercu; Lemnaru, Kinikinilau, Vlaicu; (o) Dumbrava, (m) Surugiu; Macovei Lucaci, V. Ursache; Van Heerden, Poparlan; Ion, Turashvili Lazar.
Replacements: Radoi, A. Ursache, Pungea, Tonita, Burcea, Calafeteanu, Botezatu, Gal.
It has been many years since the Blues have nothing showed offensively. I can not see them scoring 50 points to the Romanians (imagining that Romanians put ten points the Blues). On paper, there is not much difference between Italy without Parisse and Romanian XV. I would have put a handicap of 33 or 34.
