15:12 – Committee condemns sexual assault

If the World Cup committee explains that the alleged rape did not take place during a match, they obviously condemn the sad event. “We deplore this event, which according to our information did not take place in a stadium but in the city of Bordeaux. We are very sensitive to the subject of sexual or sexist attacks which could occur in stadiums.”

11:47 – Dean Fourie, 37, to debut as hooker

This week, Dean Fourie will play for the Springboks for the first time at hooker. “In 2014, when I arrived in France, I came to play hooker. The first year I played heel, the second year I was flanker, the third year I was back to hooker, then back to flanker, so I’ve been switching between the two quite a bit, so I haven’t always done the specific training for hookers, but I hope it’s a bit like cycling. “

11:43 – The end of canon confirmed

It’s official, Jacques Rivoal explained that the canons during the anthems will be removed and that a new version with the voices of the children will be broadcast. “These anthems surprised, even destabilized, traditional fans accustomed to different versions. We are attentive to this negative feedback. In order to appease this subject, which is a very sensitive subject, we are in the process of finalizing versions reworked, simplified, while preserving the children’s voices. These versions will no longer have canonical passages, which destabilized listeners.”

11:00 – Andrés Vilaseca happy to do this World Cup in France
