Mathieu Bastareaud, a three-quarter blues center, could not figure out how the game came out of the French team that finally beat South Africa on a wire (26-29).
"What dominates this game, frustration?
Much sadness. It's annoying if you lose a match like this. We succeeded in the last minute and we were punished.
How do you explain this lack of control?
It's in the head. We sleep at 22 meters and test three minutes later. The lack of control is easy and we can not afford it at this level.
Do you think about the scenario that you lost a prison game, especially after 14 points?
This test limit on the posting (after attempt) returns them to the game. We were pretty good, but we gradually lost the thread, made mistakes. We got some balloons, but we're still in trouble.
"This is not the best and European Cup, but at the international level"
Do you feel that your partners are not enough killers?
Yes, when we have an opportunity in branded areas, we can not put them at the bottom. That's annoying. He teaches for the youngest.
And for the elderly, it starts to be a little more annoying, is not it?
That's it. Stay polite. I was not against Ireland, but Guilhem (Guirado) told us that he bitterly reminded him of this scenario. This game is in his hands and left him. Now I do not want to be a positive tonight (Saturday) because it's too big to lose a match like that. On Monday, we will digest and return to work in order to face the Argentines (November 17).
Do we have to use this anger to confront the Argentines?
I do not know if I should use this anger or what you want. It should be noted that a game like this one is not lost. This is not the Top 14 and the European Championship, but at the international level. Each error is paid in cash. "
