Boks out to ex­tend French stran­gle­hold

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - SNAPCHAT -

The Spring­boks have a won­der­ful record against France. They have beaten the French 26 times, lost just 11, with six draws in their 43 Tests since their first clash in Bordeaux in 1913. The two na­tions meet in Paris tonight. Since los­ing three in a row from 2005 to 2009, South Africa have won six on the trot, in­clud­ing last year’s 18-17 vic­tory at the Stade de France in Saint-De­nis – their fourth win over the Tri­col­ors in 2017. In France, the Boks have only lost five times, with 13 vic­to­ries.
