Started nine months ago, the six-nation tournament ends on Saturday evening, October 31. The title will be played between England, Ireland and France. The meeting between the Blues and Ireland takes place in a heavy context. French rugby, like all other sports is going through a very complicated time due to the coronavirus and the re-containment.
Financially, professional clubs are in turmoil. Since the start of the season, matches have been played in front of a very small audience. From now on, they will argue behind closed doors. This will be the case for the France-Ireland match. Amateur rugby is at a standstill. All the championships were suspended Thursday, October 29, and at least until the beginning of January. In this very dark context, the XV from France must feel “on a mission”, underlines his coach Fabien Galthié: “This is what will inspire us in the preparation of this match which, with the events, takes on even more dimension, even more meaning vis-à-vis our microcosm, that of rugby.”
To the children and all amateur rugby, who cannot play, we would like to tell them that we are privileged, we are aware of that.Fabien Galthié, coach of the XV of France

“The players are aware of that and we really want to tell them to hold on and that in these difficult times you have to be resilient.”, adds the coach.
To clearly mark the solidarity of XV tricolor with these clubs in pain, the federation decided on a symbolic action. “Each player will have the name of his training club on his back, reveals the Raphaël Ibañez, the manager of the Blues.
Because we also want to pay tribute to all these clubs which are also preparing to suffer. “
To win the tournament, for the first time in ten years and offer a little happiness to their supporters, the Blues will have to clearly beat Ireland this evening, while hoping that England does not impose themselves too widely in Italy.
