France won the match with the Pacific Islanders this afternoon, but the victory was bittersweet because Nalaga, one of our opponent's best players, was expelled only twenty minutes into the game, forcing the Islander to play 14 against 15 for the remaining hour.

We beat Argentina last week, and that too was a victory that everyone agreed was not belle, even if it was earned.

Next week it's Australia we have to face, and of the three matches in this "Autumn Tournament," that's the team that will force us to prove our worth. Allez les Bleus!
