Video. France – Ireland – “Paul Willemse was impressed with the intensity”

On his return with the French team, Paul Willemse was sent off against Ireland. A yellow card, then another, converted by the bunker rule to a straight red. The exclusion that led to the fall of the XV. France, humiliated by Ireland at the Vélodrome.

A defeat that hurts, a an exclusion that is very expensive. Paul Willems saw yellow, then red against Ireland and hastened the French XV’s descent towards one of their heaviest home defeats in their history. In the program La Troisi√®me-mi-time, we of course returned to this essential fact of the meeting.

However, the native of Montpellier did not succeed in his return to the Blue, he did not play in the World Cup after the injury. The second row was guilty of two poor gestures and some have questions about his level. Remember that he was not selected by Fabien Galthie in the first list for the preparation of the 6 Nations Tournament and that he owes his place on the pitch to the packages of Emmanuel Meafou or Romain Taofifenua. Will he have another chance in the French team? Nothing is less certain after this France-Ireland…
