South Africa dashes France’s World Cup dream, wins by 29-28

South Africa defeated France and took the opportunity from them to try and find a place for their team in the World Cup. This was the quarterfinal game played out, wherein the score stopped at 29-28 in favor of South Africa.

The game came with an exciting first half, this being France playing their initial knockout game following the inclusion of coach Fabien Galthie four years ago. As a consequence, the odds at top rugby betting sites were very high.

Under the circumstances, South Africa will be up against England for a final berth. The winning game was attributed to Kurt-Lee Arendse, along with Damian de Allende, Cheslin Kolbe, and Eben Etzebeth. The credit for the power of the long passes went to Mannie Libbok and Handre Pollard.

The French team captain, Antoine Dupont, had just undergone surgery on his cheekbone. Les Bleus attempted a few goals, along with Cyril Baille, Peato Mauvaka and Thomas Ramos, who contributed 13 points. It was the second home defeat for Les Bleus, who have played 26 home tests.

According to the French manager, Raphael Ibanez, the team was extremely disappointed because they had put in a lot of effort. He agreed that, despite multiple chances, they could not turn them into points. In the opinion of the captain of the South African team, he gave all the credit to the bench, which played a spectacular role. 

South Africa’s game plan turned out to be the most effective. Having played after surgery, he did his best to tear through the French defense, and the rest is now history.

France began the game on a very positive note. Mauvaka was going all aggressive in taking away the ball and running towards the posts, but success failed him.

Then on, De Allende took over. In the case of the French team, Kolbe’s unfortunate attempts turned out to be very expensive for the French team. From here on, South Africa was in charge. Baille carried out his second touchdown. France went for the kill, but the South African team was not backing down. Then on, it was South Africa all the way.
