Video. Rugby 7s: Les Bleus lose in semi-final to play for bronze against Australia

The French were outclassed by the New Zealanders in the France Sevens semi-final in Toulouse on Sunday morning (31-7), despite a good opposition against the women’s first round team.

The French Rugby 7s team will not play in the final of this France Sevens series in Toulouse after losing their semi-final against New Zealand (31-7) on Sunday morning. A heavy score for the Blues who showed heroics against the New Zealanders to top the rankings for the women’s round.

After a big start to the game for the French side, opposition captain Sara Hirini scored the game’s first try (3) before Seraphin Okemba answered her with a sprint over 50 meters (5) . Foot by foot, the “Black Ferns” immediately regained the lead.

In the second half, New Zealand’s attacks were sharp and rewarding, while the French faced a good defense as they came close to scoring on several occasions. In the first semi-final, USA beat Australia (10-7) with a late try. Les Bleus will challenge the Australians, who are already in the group stage (19-12), in the afternoon (4:37pm).

Carla Neison (Hat.) : “Disappointed with the result. Then, we can be proud of ourselves. We showed some game, but sometimes we let it happen. We have to go to this third place and not lower our heads. After the first attempt, we managed to recover. If we could have answered them after their second attempt, It would have been another match. You have to finish on a good note and not get frustrated.”

Joanna Grises : “We shouldn’t rely on the score. I don’t think we were ever close enough to trouble them. There’s still third place and we have to change after such defeats. We’re going to come back to get it. This medal is bronze. We couldn’t finish our chances. We’ll try to put the same stuff as yesterday. (Victory over Australia, Editor’s Note), and it will happen.”
