Can the Argies beat France
November 16, 2012, 09:41:40

Given the powerful perfoamce by the  France one would doubt i tpossible. However the Argiesfor some reason have no fear offranc eand somehow manage to be atthem regulary when one would no texpect it.

Surely this cannot happen again this weekend?

One wonders how fair it is on France not to have opportunities re ranking points by playing the Boks and bas - who they might both have beaten on this form? Deseved at least one more big match. France also have a habit of tripping up the abs.

That depends entirely which French team turns up.   The French is known for the fact that they are brillinat one game and exactly the opposite the next game.   I would still think the French will win - but they have a complication though - many of the Pumas play cllub rugby in France and they will know what to expect from the French.   The match would be interesting to watch though.
