The captain of the Blues reacted after his team’s victory this Saturday against England (10-53).
Antoine Dupont (captain of XV of France, after the historic victory in England 53-10): “Not sure we realize what we did. It’s not so bad either: from the inside, it’s always harder to take a step back, to measure. We know it’s hard to win here so we can be very proud of what we’ve achieved here. It happens regularly to make big starts, to take the score, to feel that everything is working, that we are in progress, that we win contacts, that we have penalties… It may seem simple but international rugby is tough. The teams are very strong, both physically and mentally. Very often, they come back in the game, correct the small defects live. That’s also what we have to work on, but of course we’re happy when everything works, when we’re connected and when we’re aligned in strategy and tactics. It provides emotions of control which are very pleasant on the ground.» Comments collected during a press conference.
