France coach still wants first win over Australia

France coach Marc Lievremont is hoping that he can win his first match against Australia when the two teams meet in Paris on Saturday.

The match is Lievremont’s lasst chance to test his combinations against Southern Hemispher opposition before the Rugby world cup as there are no June tours next year.

Lievremont, who has been in charge of France for the last three years, will be able to count on his dominant forwards but not as reliable is his backline which has not been clicking.

The former France player continually tinkers with his team’s which means that there has been little stability and Australia could be able to use this to their advantage if their scrum can withstand the French scrum.

France’s pack has performed well against Fiji and Argentina and South Africa but Lievremont knows how smart the Wallabies can be and would have watched how their match against England had no completed scrums.

“The scrum is a recognized weakness of their rugby but that doesn’t hinder the other sectors of their game,” said Lievremont.
