Small but vocal French support nearby

There aren’t many of them, but there is a French support section in the southern corner of the pitch here at Lang Park, right next to where the France team is warming up.

“Come on the Blues” rings and tricolor flags are waved.

The rest of the crowd? Dressed in green and gold …

Time state

The Wallabies have an eight-game winning streak at Lang Park, a record they just managed to maintain after coming from behind in added time to win Game 1 of the series 11 days ago.

The French won their first game against the Wallabies in Australia since 1990 with a victory in Melbourne.

In the last 10 games between the two teams, the Wallabies have won seven and lost three.

France haven’t beaten the Wallabies in Brisbane since a 15-16 victory at Ballymore in June 1972.

Since then, the Wallabies have won seven straight games in Brisbane, three at Ballymore and four at Lang Park.

Who is favorite tonight?

Hi Simon

Which team do you think is best trained to win tonight? And thank you very much for the blog which is a welcome diversion from the lockdown here in Sydney.

-Mark de Sydney

Hi Mark, I hope you are doing well and safe during the lockdown and we can help you make you happy tonight.

It’s really hard to call it to be honest. Both teams have made a lot of changes so it might take a little while for the teams to come together again.

The Wallabies made a lot of stupid mistakes in Melbourne, and the French punished them, but if they correct them I think they are the stronger team, then I will say the Wallabies. Fair.

The game will be won or lost with the breakdown

Wallabies scrum half Tate McDermott spoke to Stan Sport ahead of the game.

He said the blackout will be the key.

“The match will be won or lost in the breakdown…. we have to do better than last Tuesday, ”he said.

“The most important thing for me is to stick to my strength to lead the ball but also to lead the front field.

“My job is simple enough to unleash the backs outside of me. “

He’s pretty good at that, it’s McDermott, but when the Reds were without James O’Connor for a while this Super Rugby season, McDermott became the Reds’ offensive backbone. I wouldn’t object to seeing him snip the ruck and try it out a little from time to time …

How is the atmosphere?

How is the atmosphere? I want to love vicariously through you tonight …

-Sydney locked

Hey, locked up Sydney.

Hope this blog can bring you some joy tonight.

The atmosphere is certainly rising. I was a little early to really soak up the outside, but there are people rushing and now they are flooding the stadium bowl which is great.

Everyone must register and wear a mask at the entrance.

I’m sure it will continue to develop until kick-off …

Wallabies sound the changes

How the teams dealt with the short delay between the second and third Tests was always going to be key, and the Wallabies responded by making eight changes from the squad that lost on Tuesday night.

Reds scrum half Tate McDermott is in, the pair of Brumbies too Len Ikitau and lock Darcy Swain.

Allan Alaalatoa comes back with a tight head, that is to say Taniela Tupou can lash off the bench like he did to help the Wallabies come back from behind in the first Test.

Lachie Swinton returns to the starting line at the level of the flanker, while Isi Naisarani starts at number eight.

Ikitau enters the centers and Filipo Daugunu replace Tom Wright on the wing.

Jordan Uelese comes to the side, and Reece Hodge will play off the bench.
