Rugby: the French Barbarians lose against the United States (26-21)

the essential
Opposed to the United States last night in Houston (Texas), the French Barbarians lost by 5 small points (26-21).

They were inches away from winning. Unfortunately for them, they failed a few centimeters from the American in-goal. Yet trailing 23-7 in the 51st minute, Denis Charvet’s players managed to get back into the game thanks in particular to the three tries scored by Pierre Aguillon, the center of Castres, Raphaël Lagarde, the opener of Agen, and another penalty.


The Baa-baas lost 26-21 after more than 80 minutes of play.

Denis Charvet: “You can be proud of yourself, the main thing is that you sent each other, that you had fun, well done, it’s authentic.”#BRC #BaaBaas #mindandgame
