Post French farce..!
Watched France/USA (31-39, 5 tries apiece) last night - maybe France havent got as much strength in depth as I gave them credit for !!? I seem to remember Ireland put 80 odd points against USA recently ? :kermit:

5 current internationals 6 'caps' past/present not front liners and 4 new caps... should have been enough to see off the USA ? ... but it's always difficult to organise a 'rag bag' I suppose ... their defence was akin to that of Wales in the first match against Arg but not as many tries !

I didn't see the game so cant comment as per their strengh in depth.

The French can be very inconsistant though cant they. They seem to be able to beat NZ one day and play like crap in the next match.

Aparantly USA have just signed loads of players who didn't make the NFL draft and are looking a lot more professional - or so I seem to remember a bloke down the pub tellign me whilst Wales were losing to SA and I was drinking a hell of a lot of Jack...
