The French corrected by the Samoans and eliminated from the World Cup

The last group match, resembling the round of 16, left little hope for the French team. In Warrington, Laurent Frayssinous’ players conceded a crushing defeat against Samoa and their 11 NRL players.

We were waiting for the forwards, and their phenomenal power, it was finally the three-quarters who quickly made the difference against the Blues, with a first try in the 5th minute by center Tim Lafai, on a game at the foot of Jarome Luai . Then the wingers went there from their festival with a second achievement from Brian To’o 18th before a quadruple from Taylan May, the formidable player of the Penrith Panthers (21st, 34th, 40, 45th, 34-0).

A huge construction site

The rest of the second period will turn into a demonstration as the French have never existed, even if Fouad Yaha will save the honor by scoring on a low-foot game from César Rougé after a mess from the Samoan rear (53rd). Joseph Paulo’s partners will score five additional tries, including a double from Milford (63rd, 74th) for a final score of 62-4.

Samoans will face Tonga in the quarter-finals. End of the adventure for the young blues who finish third in their group, with a victory against Greece and two defeats against England and Samoa. As in 2017, the French team did not reach the quarter-finals, a goal announced before the competition.

The project is huge for the French Federation before the World Cup in France in 2025.
