Xupi, look, Italy beat the Boks some months ago man. Italy. Last week's France team was so horribly awful they actually managed to make this shit Boks team look good. I'm talking about a real damn Test match win, a convincing, real ass Test match win Xupi.
Boks are not the force they used to be, but they remain ... the Springboks. A convincing win over there remains a rare feat for European nations, and would be a statement.

Laporte had it many times but let's just name the 2007 WC quarter. Lievremont had some, let's name 2009 vs those mighty Boks in Toulouse, or that Test 1 win in Dunedin vs the Blacks (an outright, uncontested victory). Even PSA got a couple of scalps, even PSA got Australia a couple of times, managed to beat England a couple times through his style but even those weren't really statement wins, 33-6 over Aus was pretty damn nice and beating England right before the WC was nice too (in a match that wasn't close at all until the 70th) but really we haven't had any since Lievremont actually but atm Noves is in fact below PSA, even.
He's still got a couple seasons ahead of him, but beware old man, time flies by ! Time flies by... you don't have forever when you're the headcoach of a Tier 1 national Rugby team !!
0-27 in Argentina, an unbelievable result that no French team could ever dream of. That's his major statement win so far, it's not much I agree.

Xupi I don't mean to systematically downplay what you throw at me, but as happy as I was at the time of the 0-27, and although it was indeed the Pumas first team, it was one big giant nothing. Why. Because with hindsight, we now know what this was: France never confirmed anything since then and had a very small November tour and a very small 6N. And Argentina with their first team just lost to England B, they're just not interested it seems in those mid-year tests.

It's playing ostrich's head in the sand to say sth like "oh well France got 3 wins at the 6N" for whoever says that, as if it was encouraging going forward to just barely, baaaarely scrape past Scotland and Wales at home and beating Italy.

If the staff's big reference is beating Argentina well, the same that ships 35 points to England B...what sort of league are we talking here ?
In the meantime NZ and England are playing at the top, Ireland not far behind, Scotland Aus looking pretty good, and Wales or SA out to get some credibility back. This leaves France out in the cold, not even a protagonist anymore, becoming more of a dark horse candidate, losing to fkng Wallabies B in Paris, looking a right mess at every Test... with the talent available ? Not good enough.

P.S.: you don't need Picamoles Fofana Slimani Baille Guirado Vahaamahina Gourdon Ollivon Vakatawa Nakaitaci...to achieve a close game vs Wallabies B, barely scrape past Scotland or Wales at home or score 4 tries on Italy. You can do all that with much, much less.

and other Sanzaar nations apart from NZ. France have got the rough end of the stick with two games at altitude even the ABs find it tough at Ellis Park.

France were experimenting in that game too with three number 8s in the back row and the half back competition. Spedding butchering a 4 v 1 5 metres from the line by cutting back inside didn't help your cause either.

You people love zooming in on one tiny aspect of a much bigger view. Excuses excuses excuses. It doesn't matter at all Spedding missed that one particular chance, or if you want another, that try in the corner Aus scored it turned out was illegal - it's the very fact much more broadly of even coming close at home against a Wallabies B side. You've got 80 min to make sure you beat the shit out of this humiliating selection of second and third choices challenging you in your backyard, and you fkng lose that. Who gives a shit what opportunities were missed now ?! All people have is the scoreline, and yes France failed to beat Aus B, yes absolutely factually they did. They didn't have one Spedding play... they had EIGHTY MINUTES.

Same way, if it wasn't for Slimani, or a very untimely knock-on potentially somewhere from the 80th to the 100th min, France actually lose another fkng home game....TO WALES. And Wales were pretty shit this year, everybody knows.

You need to understand that France's victory in Argentina does not count, that the fact that France had its best results in the 6N in years does not count either.
When France win, it is because the other team is rebuilding or did not play well.

When they don't win, it is because of Noves.

Eh oui. Un petit entraîneur, maintenant complètement sénile, et qui ne doit ses succès
qu'au budget du ST, notoirement 3.7 fois supérieur à celui de toute la concurrence confondu.

D'ailleurs tu cites là un des quelques coaches de génie qu'il nous faudrait - ou lui, ou Torq, enfin

Effectivement. Ils auraient tous les deux clairement du postuler pour le role d'entraineur du 15 de France.

Je pense que l'on aurait un pourcentage de victoires proche des 95%.

Domage qu'ils n'y aient pas pense.

Vive la France. Welcome. Land of the perpetual excuse, moral victories, flair without substance, eloquence beats common sense, hubris and chaos over rationality and order, emotion over thought, superficial over deep. Dionysus smiting Apollo.

It will always, always be more desirable to hate on a designed enemy than to look at one's own belly and notice how fat and shitty it is. Someone calling out the national team with apparent affection: ooh, let's call his mom a slut and explain to him he's a dick. That'll convince him good his rational, stat/fact based position is null.

It would be I believe cataclysmic for the appeal and reputation of the xv de France, inside and outside the country, to stick a third straight (relatively) clueless management with no worthy victory to show for, because you can quote me on this, the xv de France Noves style is not winning a 6N of its entire length, nor any worthy test series or major single match victory, and will be totally underwhelming at the WC.

Right. I really hope you'lle be proven wrong Saturday night after the test-match, because undoubtedly beating the Springboks on their turf would be just that: a major single match victory.

I think they can do it and I think, although the results remain bad, that Novès and his staff are pushing the lads in the right direction gameplay wise.

Xupi, look, Italy beat the Boks some months ago man. Italy. Last week's France team was so horribly awful they actually managed to make this shit Boks team look good. I'm talking about a real damn Test match win, a convincing, real ass Test match win Xupi.

Laporte had it many times but let's just name the 2007 WC quarter. Lievremont had some, let's name 2009 vs those mighty Boks in Toulouse, or that Test 1 win in Dunedin vs the Blacks (an outright, uncontested victory). Even PSA got a couple of scalps, even PSA got Australia a couple of times, managed to beat England a couple times through his style but even those weren't really statement wins, 33-6 over Aus was pretty damn nice and beating England right before the WC was nice too (in a match that wasn't close at all until the 70th) but really we haven't had any since Lievremont actually but atm Noves is in fact below PSA, even.
He's still got a couple seasons ahead of him, but beware old man, time flies by ! Time flies by... you don't have forever when you're the headcoach of a Tier 1 national Rugby team !!

Did you just move the goal posts?

Anyway, I can assure you now, no convincing win is coming. I'll take a 3 month break from here if it happens.

And to avoid weasel room, I'll be kind and say 10 points is convincing.

Sco up to 4th in rankings after away win at Aus.

Townsend has only had a few games in charge and already more away wins v Tier 1 nations than PSA and Noves combined.

IF Arg beat Eng this evening, Fra will probably drop to their equal, lowest rank ever.

Townsend is merely picking up where Cotter left off in a great position, and and and Scotland have wayyyyy more talent and much more depth and quality players than a country like France.

It's just a depressing continuation of inept management but really, it's so deeply rooted now from top to bottom, I'm not sure why we should expect anything else. Noves is just one cog with missing teeth in a whole clock where every component is damaged in some way.

oui il a parfois fait la boite à ballon, mais je le trouve assez sûr, et j'aime bien le gars... je le connais pas bien sûr, mais souvenez-vous quand ils lui avait annoncé sa 1ère sélection : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0PKfgLO18U

Pour un non français c'était beau. Alors là, il revient dans son pays natal, avec le coq sur la poitrine, la famille dans les tribunes, après une dérouillée... j'sais pas, mais soit il s'effondre (je pense pas), soit il est énorme, façon nyanga après ses larme sur l'hymne ya qq années.

Il va être énorme. Ils vont nous faire plaisir, tous. Ou alors là....

As long. As you've got. The talent.
Why are Fofana Lamerat Lopez Nakaitaci Vahaamahina doing so well at Clermont ? Slimani destroying every scrum you put in front of him ? Guirado, Picamoles have been world class for years, and still the best Frenchman has been Gourdon though. At SH, just a year ago Machenaud was considered the best now he's relegated behind the newer Serin and Dupont, while Parra just bossed his team to a title.
At LH Ben Arous was world class during world cup time then got injured so they tried Poirot who did well, he went down too so they tried Cyrille Baille. Best LH in the 6N.
At center you've got prime choices of Lamerat Fofana Doumayrou Chavancy Danty, or a fit Yann David. Others, Penaud, are comin up. In the back three Vakatawa is a beast ball in hand, and they might not be world class but Dulin and Spedding are good in their own right, those are not awful fullbacks. Trade in Dulin's so-so match last week with his brilliant featuring vs the Blacks in Nov.

Yes there are too many foreigners in the Top 14. Yes there are lackings technically overall in that league. Yes the calendar is too long. But there's still talent, and lots of available talent, well enough so that its combined elite could play decent Test Rugby. And yet. The xv de France is a joke.
The day France have none of those aforementioned players, footballers the quality of Georgia or Canada, then I'll drop the charge. But Novès has quite some individual talent to play with. Other failures around ...don't excuse your own failure.

Both Arrate and Kolingar banned for the remainder of the comp (and longer but only 1 game left). Ironically the worst offence by Pesenti escaped the citing commissioner or he was gone too. Congrats to Fra coaching team for managing to generate the worst discipline in the entire comp...... in 1 game.

In other words, the lads will come home with one prize: dirtiest team in the comp. :thumbup:

Also, they've done all Do-sans and playing Couilloud who is a SH at FH. :lol:

bon, ça tombe bien, j'viens de me remettre au hockey et le rugby je sais pas, trop traumatisant passé la 40aine.

visiblement, le rugby français c'est un peu fini quoi. Bon des tournées pourries on en a eu, mais là c'était pas une équipe C

Sinon, pourquoi picamole est sorti ?

bon, picamoles, huget? qui d'autre ? on a pété tout le monde ?

elles servent à rien ces tournées d'été à la fin, à chaque fois c'est pareil depuis au moins la fin des années 90...

on est obligé de les "jouer" ?

Je ne sais pas.

Le nombre de fautes techniques individuelles est incroyable. C'est frustrant.

Sinon, pourquoi picamole est sorti ?

Supposedly injured in the collision that sent the Safa 7 off but after last week, he's either injured or really doesn't want to be there.

The epitome. Has been stellar all season in Eng and 1 game in for France and he's been turned to sh*t.

6 Scotland 82.18

EIGHTH. Scotland about to be 4th. Would be interesting to speculate where Scotland would be under Noves and co. 40th?

:thumbup: yeah, just about. Fortieth seems fair. With a rich choice of Dubois or Lagisquet for the attack, you're not far from 40th, yeah.

This is it, people. This is the turning point. This is the point where people with a shred of hindsight and common sense get more credibility over what they'd been preaching for the past year, and where all the yellers on the mainstream side start to point the fingers right about in the right direction. Finally. It took you fkng long enough, masses. It's becoming too obvious. Replace the parts with better parts and you have better results, Fofana Lamerat Ollivon and France were doing a bit better in November, Baille Lopez Nakaitaci a prime Picamoles and France were doing a tad better in the 6N, but there's still no game plan in sight for light years.

Add any good player at any line you want to this unnatural abomination, you'd be redecorating an old woman's fermented shitpile with gold.
This is now funny. It's not longer an ordeal. We're getting close to that point with PSA, far beyond despair, right at the limit of feeling concerned at all whatsoever. Only much sooner.

You watching Xupi?

Yes, I watched the whole thing. The Boks were a class above. Our forwards were manshamed in every contact and collision + so many gifts and errors it's almost unbelievable. François Trinh-duc... :uhoh:

Very disappointing, I was expecting better.

Penaud is a gem though, so is Dupont. Guirado played his heart out. Vakatawa and Spedding good.

On the Boks first try Picamoles is limping while he's in the line to defend, he has at least 3 opportunities to kill off the movement and cannot run.

He's right, in terms of cohesion of play in general and commitment, it's much better. But the Boks just dominated us upfront and converted the many gifts handed out by some players, and Novès cannot do anything against that.
