These are Raynal’s words: “I told you at first because you are the captain. Then I also said that to number ten [Foley, ndr]. I warned him, “If you don’t play right away, I’ll give him a little something.” And what did you do in the end? You keep wasting time. It’s not right. If you think I am unable to set scrum and give turnover, you are making a mistake. Now you know.”
