The XV of France conquered the Six Nations Rugby Tournament with full victories (Grand Slam) after defeating England (25-13) this Saturday (03.19.2022) at the Stade de France in Paris, in the fifth and last working day.
The ‘Bleus’ of Fabien Galthié and Antoine Dupont, authors of three tries against the XV de la Rosa, had not won the Six Nations since 2010, the year in which they also won a Grand Slam.
In total, France has achieved that title with honors that is the Six Nations Grand Slam on ten occasions during its history.
In this edition they had previously beaten Italy (37-10), Ireland (30-24), Scotland (36-17) and Wales (13-9), before this last victory against the English. In the list of winners, France succeeds Wales, which this time came in fifth place.
After 12 years without lifting the star rugby trophy in the Northern Hemisphere, France achieves this success in the year prior to the 2023 World Cup, where it will act as host country.
On the horizon, the French have the challenge of being able to beat South Africa, the current world champion, in the test-matches next November. (afp)
