Rising star Anthony Belleau impresses in latest Toulon victory

I'm pretty sure Noves will try out Dupont as scrumhalf and Serin as flyhalf pretty soon.

On Belleau, we have to wait and see on a longer period.

Schalk Brits angered at cynical play by Kahn Fotuali'i

I always do that when we play for fun and I end up playing a ball as scrum half
but I have half Italian / half Morgan Parra blood so I raise my arms and shout "Oh C'mon". Always worked never been disappointed.

Joke aside ref tends to penalize less and less offsides position (from my point of view) so when we get frustrated by having a 3rd rower in your legs second after the ball comes out you start to be cynical and play the rules that cant be argue with. This "foul" would be difficult not be penalized by the ref.

Mass brawl spills into tunnel as match gets abandoned in France

I'm French and I have been playing rugby all my life with potential brawls. Not all games, not big one but at least 2 or 3 fights per seasons (which means roughly one every 6games approx.) and maybe one mass brawl per year. So this does not schock me at all.
We can call it "ridiculous" or "disgrace" but that was rugby I played. Maybe this is what French rugby is about.
Our U18 even had a call for it: "Bethoveen"

You missed the whole point of this class struggle between Pascal who led the strike, who is up for the battle and Chavancy, the upper class boy, who did not take position during the merger announcementt.

The peculiar Vannes vs Narbonne 'no maul' stand off

From what I heard (but could not see the game), Narbonne had been penalized just before for going around the formed maul and tackling the ball carrier. (ref mistake?). They tried because they had been severly destroyed by Vannes' mauls in the game.
Then traumatized by the former lineout, it gave the following sequence.
Ahhh rugby and rules.

Fascinating 2017 Six Nations comes to a close - Final Weekend Highlights Wrap

Of there is a crawling paranoia going on! We're French of course! But lets face it, we're a Tier2 nation at best, so being arbitrated as a Tier2 nation is not schocking. Against NH or SH teams. Whatever.

Regarding my comment about the late decision, I've read it somewhere after we whined on the France Australia refeering (23 - 25) and the penalties not awarded after several scrums dominated by France in the end of the game. I think it came from someone of World Rugby. But now, I can't find it anymore.
