    Rugby - French.

    France.

    Rugby teams pose for camera. In some sort of ceremony; while the players and various older men stand together on the field; one of the old men places a wreath on a stand; then they all sing a song. (Could be in memory of those lost in First World War? - SL.)

    Shots of the rugby match in progress. At one point one man falls and remains lying down; either injured or just too tired to get up; while all the rest run off; continuing the game without him. The stands are crowded w/ spectators; and more sit on the ground in front of the seating.

    Shots of the fans leaving; some noticing camera and grinning at it. Shot of chalkboard scoreboard w/ score 6 to 5.

    Sports.
