A perfect introduction. The XV of France U20 rolled out – and even more than that – for this first match of the World Cup against Japan. 75-12 in favor of the Bleuets, eleven tries to two. The damage is done. Find all the best tries of the match in video.
Less than two minutes of play and the game is on. After an action initiated by the forwards, Nicolas Depoortère finds the fault in the opposing defense. The UBB player flattened under the posts.
The fourth try falls shortly after the quarter hour of play. This time, Noa Zinzen is at the conclusion of an action after a redoubled with his scrum half.
Shortly before the half hour mark, Esteban Capilla scored the fifth try for Les Bleuets, just after the first Japanese mark.
All in power, the number 8 of the Blues Marko Gazzotti flattened behind the line to afford a double.
Two minutes for the first try of the match and two minutes after the break for the… seventh French try. Inscribed in corner by Mathis Ferté.
At the end of the match, the French will accelerate a little more. After a collective counter, it’s Léo Carbonneau who joins the party.
Three tries in the last ten minutes for the French. The eleventh and last is entered by Andy Timo.
