Sam recommended this video of the Semi Final France v Thailand in 2002, and here’s why….
It’s France 11 and Thailand 12 in the last end. The Thai’s are holding with 4 boules in hand. The French have only 2 and few options. They elect to kill it and Phillipe Quintais shoots the coche. To his horror, it stops about three or four inches short of the back string putting a French back boule on but well away. Henri Lacrois has the last boule but the Thais have four and an acre of space to get one point. How could they lose? At least watch the last 2 minutes of the video to see real pain 😱
Enjoy and thanks Sam,
