At one month of the World Cup in Japan, the Blues have launched their preparation by defeating Scotland on Saturday night at the Allianz Riviera Nice (32-3). They will find the XV thistle next Saturday, Murrayfield, before welcoming Italy in Saint-Denis, Friday, August 30.
Doubled of Médard
Saturday, in the rain, the Blues are immediately entered the game by registering a try through the winger Aliverati Raka, before the back Maxime Médard only digs the gap with a 15-0 in the middle of the first period. Before the break, the young third row Grégory Alldritt, allowed the men of Jacques Brunel to return to the locker room with a large lead, despite a penalty Scottish (20-3).
Less blunt early in the second period, the Blues have regained control at the hour of play, first through Maxime Médard, conspicuous with two tries Saturday night, and Antoine Dupont with a few minutes test later. Rather serene, the XV of France managed the end of the meeting without too much trouble (32-3), largely rotating the squad.
