On that video it had western rams 22 France 20 at the end!

The western rams were certainly celebrating like they had won !

I thought the same thing but the graphic must be wrong, listen to the commentary they say Western Rams lost, couldhave drawn if they made the final conversion.

Western nsw area I believe, country rugby league on their badge 

Maybe the last time we see that. On Oct 18, the CRL voted to fold and be absorbed by the NSWRL.

Crowd 3713 at Parkes. Big performance from Miloudi I hear. A dozen or so local clubs represented. Bush combinations have rich history playing visiting overseas teams. Pleased for France and Cologni to get a win there.

Geez is the Australia Deputy Prime Minister a stereo type or what at halftime when he said... "lets hope we put it up the frogs" only in Australia.

Well done France good effort considering they were missing at least half there best players due to injury and dissatisfaction with the French Administration.

It Seems like this year there have been a resurgence in Rugby League National playing tour matches matches against regional sides with France playing this game and Samoa playing a game NZ provincial side Canterbury Bulls.

Miloudi must have made 300 meters... But sideways. 

Navarrete and Seguier way ahead of the others forwards. Marguerite light years ahead of every other back.

Is Parkes Spacemen the best name for a team ever?

I play for the Stanthorpe Gremlins. It takes some beating.

Although Guyra Super Spuds is pretty awesome.

Whilst it is great that France came out for these games, they didnt do anything for the credibility of International RL. They have sent out a B team that got totally humiliated by the Australian B team (not even a B team, U23's) and have then struggled to beat a team of local Country players. Meanwhile Samoa put 50 on a NZ provincial side in a canter.

I totally appreciate where the game is at in France and realise that its nothing like it is in Australia, but they've had a fulltime professional team for over a decade playing in Superleague. At this stage they should be able to send out a national team of Super League standard players, competing with the likes of Samoa and Fiji.

The blame for this is squarely on the shoulders of the administration, firstly for creating the culture in FRL where the best players dont want to commit to the national team, and secondly for funding and going ahead with this tour that was a hiding to nothing for the players. The place needs a broom put through it, its obvious that there are good coaches in France and with the likes of Fages, Gigot, Escare etc it shows that there is talent there that can be nurtured, its just the politics in the FRL that seems to be holding everthing back.

Although not a good example at the moment, RU is barely played in Australia outside private schools. Yet we have won a couple of World Cups and compete with the best teams in the world. A coach once said when questioned about our playing numbers compared to other countries, they can only put 15 on the field same as us so we just need 15 good ones. France need to get rid of the excuses and plan to utilise what the have to the best of their ability.

The issue we have is of course down to money. However the likes of Tonga have players who are happy pulling on a jumper for their ‘brothers’, play for pride and to give back to the communities. However, the northern hemisphere attitude seems to be more of entitlement and privilege, hence why you get the situations with France and comments from Ireland camp. 

It doesn’t help if there are failed promises so expectations are not met, which appear too frequent
