Guilhem Guirado, the captain of the French team, did not hide the huge disappointment in the ranks of the Blues after the defeat in extremis against South Africa (26-29).
Guilhem Guirado (captain of the France team after the defeat of the Blues against South Africa) "On the whole match, we are satisfied with what we have been able to do. Unfortunately, the last minutes ruin us a bit. The cloakroom is bruised. We will have to question because against Argentina (November 17), it will be a big fight again. Our end of the match makes me the effect of the end of the match against Ireland during the Tournament (defeat in stoppage of play on a drop of Sexton). We had this match against South Africa in the hands and we escape. I hope this will serve as a lesson.
After the facts in themselves, we lack control and patience. Yet we jostle the South Africans who are reputed to be movers. We even give ourselves the means to win it. I would have preferred to win this game and not score. What matters to me is the win and in the group we all had this state of mind. "
