France vs South Africa match predictions
France to win with a 1 point handicap @1/1 (2.00)We can expect a very tight match between France and South Africa and we are backing the hosts to be dragged over the finish line by a passionate home crowd. The Springboks have strength and power across their forwards and backs, but we are backing France to have enough, particularly with a one point advantage!
Damian Penaud to be the first try @ 9/1 (10.00)With six tries in the tournament so far, Damian Penaud will be very hard to stop in Saint-Denis on Sunday evening. The winger has made 278 metres with the ball across the competition and has beaten 21 defenders in the process. He found the line inside 2 minutes in France’s crucial last match against Italy and we can expect him to quickly come out of the traps on Sunday evening.
France vs South Africa preview – Two great teams with home advantage the keyFrance come into this game as the group winners with South Africa the runners up in Pool B. But of course that counts for nothing when the referee blows the whistle for starters orders on Sunday evening. Expect the teams to be well matched throughout this game and it may well only be a couple of points which decides the contest.
FranceWith wins over New Zealand, Italy, Uruguay and Namibia during the group stage, France come into this quarter final with a 100% record in the tournament. Yes, there is an added pressure as the hosts of the competition but the possibility of France winning their first ever Rugby World Cup is very much on at the moment. A win on Sunday will make it eight victories on the bounce!
South AfricaGiving up the Rugby World Cup trophy is not something which any team does lightly and we are expecting South Africa to fight for every ball and tackle throughout this game. Their only defeat in the tournament came against Ireland who won by five points and they will come into this match with a great deal of self belief. Tonga were seen off by a score of 49-18 in their final group stage fixture, that’s the most amount of points that South Africa have conceded in this campaign and they will need to be at their best defensively in this match.
