The men's French rugby sevens team is now only one victory in the Olympic Games in Tokyo, after their 19-12 victory over Ireland in the semi-finals of the Colomiers Olympic Qualifying Tournament. Blues facing England at. 18:00 to try to win Grail.

If the French women's rugby sevens team failed in the semi-finals of the Olympic qualification tournament in Kazan (Russia), the men did better by qualifying for the TQO final in Colomiers in Tarn. Unlike Ireland, the Franks have imposed themselves 19-12 after the excitement. Led fast to the score, they were offset by Jean-Pascal Barraque, then Terry Bouhraoua gave them the advantage just before the half-hour. At restart, the Irish managed to equalize before Bouhraoua doubled the bet. But Blues was a little scared when they put the ball in contact and thought that the clock had passed, as it was not. The referee returned the ball to the green, which did nothing. France will play the long-awaited final in front of the audience against England! The English easily beat Portugal 29-12 and will leave favorites against the French when they finished fifth of the last World Circuit while Blues finished eighth. But worn by their audience, Blues can tear away to cope with their precious Olympic sesame!

In the morning, the French, who had won all three pool games against Hungary, Italy and Portugal on Saturday, easily beat Georgia 28-0 thanks to tests by Pierre-Gilles Lakafia, Sacha Valleau, Terry Bouhraoua and Jean-Pascal Barraque, who thus celebrated the most beautiful way the birth of his daughter sat.
