Boks out to ex­tend French stran­gle­hold

The Citizen (KZN) - - 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.
