Discuss, Can France upset the ABs.
Props. Mas & Poux are awesome scrummagers. Obvz Woodcock and Franks are no slouches, but I'd give the French that one.Think the scoreline'll be closer than in the group stages, but its hard to point to any area of France's game, besides completely random unpredictability, that they've got the edge on NZ.
We weren't flash in 2007, but I'm inclined to agree. Les Bleus have palyed for one half against us and that's it.Has a worse team ever made a World Cup Final? Serious question by the way..
Considering they lost to Tonga who had lost to Canada and the fact that they battled to beat a 14 man Welsh outfit who would have won if they kicked better.
If France wins, it would have to be one of the biggest upsets in a Final in any world sporting event.
It all takes is someone getting sent off or yellow carded - and it is game on. NZ must take an early lead so that France gives up. Expect the game to be decided in the first 20 minutes.Think the scoreline'll be closer than in the group stages, but its hard to point to any area of France's game, besides completely random unpredictability, that they've got the edge on NZ.
Yes, I think it's safe to say Cruden has clearly over-taken Slade now and hopefully he becomes Carter's full backup when he's back to full fitness and they don't go back to Slade.Good call on Cruden some months ago James he has looked the business.
