France vs. Tonga Rugby World Cup Match Preview
The Tri Colours finish their pool matches against Tonga who are well rested entering this match today. Thee sides have met 3 times with France wining each encounter, their last WC match was in 1995 where France won 38-10, while their most recent meeting was in 2005 where France ran out easy 43-8 winners.
France has made 4 changes to the side that lost to the All Blacks with Maxime Médard moving from wing to full-back in the place of Damien Traille, Alexis Palisson makes his first start of the tournament in the number 11 jersey. While Raphael Lakafia returns at number eight in the place of Louis Picamoles. And At hooker, William Servat starts ahead of Dimitri Szarzewski, who is on the bench. France had their moments against the All Blacks but were unable to gain any real dominance, this match provides them with a chance to try and see what works best for them and so in many ways I am not expecting a huge France win as I think just winning and seeing what fits best for this French side is the real objective for this match.
Tonga have been disappointing so far even though they got by a bungling Japan side last week, they have though had their longest preparation time so far this WC for this match and will be upbeat fresh from a win no matter who it was against, they should be a challenge for France for a while but eventually should be run down and beaten into submission.
France could cover this start but either way it will be iffy as to whether they will or not, Tonga have had just as much time as France have had to get ready for this match and they still have a small chance of making the finals should they win, it won’t happen and France will win this match but I’ll say that France will win it in the last 20 mins and run out 43-17 winners.
