It’s a delightful or cruel spectacle, depending on which side of the Channel fate has brought you to. From the stands almost emptied of supporters in white jerseys, whose exodus began after the rival’s fifth try on the hour mark. At the bottom of the stands, French spectators converge on the places closest to the lawn to approach their heroes. Applaud them. Thank them. Shout to them their happiness to have been there for this historic moment.
