The Wallabies have been warned not to fall into the trap of viewing France as a team of all sizzle and no steak.Lauded as the kings of flair, Frances reputation as international rugbys flashy team has earned them plaudits for decades.But it can mask the hard-nosed rugby which wins big Tests, and that is what has the Wallabies on high alert ahead of Saturdays clash at Stade de France.Prop Sekope Kepu has concerns which hit closer to home than the dashing pace and guile of their outside backs.Their scrum is a weapon for them. Theyre renowned for it, Kepu said on Tuesday.Kepu said the key to nullifying the 80,000-strong crowd was to silence them in the scrum.And even the loss of impressive young prop Jefferson Poirot to a shoulder injury shouldnt hinder Frances threat in the set piece, Kepu argues.Hes a great young guy coming through and obviously to lose him is massive for the French side, but theyve got a lot of guys coming through, Kepu said of his former Bordeaux teammate.Theres no shortage of front rowers here.Kepu plans on taking aside young bucks Allen Alaalatoa and Tom Robertson ahead of the match to prepare them for what to expect from the crowd and the match.The biggest thing is (the French) love scrummaging, their mentality is a bit different to what the southern hemisphere teams (do) and what were used to, Kepu said.Its something they take pride in and its something weve built over the last year or two as the Wallabies and Australian front row.Its a forward pack thing (but) just the way they operate and the way they like to scrum is something that Ill have a chat to the boys about.Its a massive challenge and were definitely looking forward to it.Both Kepu and utlity back Dane Haylett-Petty have experience playing club rugby in France, and both are wise to the ruse that French teams are all flash and no substance.Theyre a great team. Theyre capable of playing an attacking, exciting style of rugby, Haylett-Petty said.Everyone talks about the French flair (but) also because of the European (style) theyre also able to grind out wins.We know what a challenge its going to be and were really looking for to it.The boys are preparing well and looking forward to the next challenge.Australia is currently undefeated on the Spring Tour, with victories over Wales and Scotland leaving them halfway to a treasured grand slam - with fixtures against Ireland and England to follow the France Test.

The?Philadelphia Eagles?released wide receiver Josh Huff?on Thursday, two days after he was arrested and?charged with possessing an unloaded 9 mm handgun without a permit, a magazine that had six hollow-point bullets and a small amount of marijuana, the team announced.In a statement released to ESPNs Adam Caplan, Huff said, First, I want to apologize to Mr. Lurie and his family, my coaches and teammates, and all Eagles fans. Im sorry that any action by me brought negative light to this organization. I want to thank the Lurie Family, Howie [Roseman], this community and the entire Eagles organization for the opportunity Ive had for the past 3 years. Most important, I want to let the fans and community as a whole know that I understand the responsibility I have as a professional athlete, and I will take all measures necessary to correct mistakes I have made.Huff had practiced with the team Wednesday.He had expressed regret for Tuesdays incident and apologized to his teammates and the organization for causing a distraction. But when it came to questions about his decision to carry a gun with hollow-point bullets, Huff stood his ground.Im a professional athlete. What professional athlete dont have a gun? Huff said. I have a wife and I have a son at home. My job is to protect them at all costs, and my job is to protect myself as well, even though I know I have security here, but I have to protect myself as well.Asked whether he believes everybody in the Eagles locker room and around the league carries a gun, Huff said, I do. Yes, I do.Huff was arrested on the gun and drug charges after he was pulled over for speeding on the Walt Whitman Bridge on the New Jersey side. He was also cited for driving under the influence.Howie Roseman, Eagles VP of football operations, when asked what had changed since Wednesday, said, We just want to go through a process, gather all the information and then sit down as an organization and make a decision that we think is the right decision for the Philadelphia Eagles.Roseman said that he and CEO Jeffrey Lurie, president Don Smolenski and coach?Doug Pederson made the decision together.Its disappointing that we have to stand up here and do this, but were trying to build something and were trying to build something that lasts, and some of that means that were going to have to make some hard decisions, Roseman said.?Theres no doubt that he was coming along as a player and that he helps this team, but we have to do whats in the best interest of this organization, this building, and the 63 guys. We have a responsibility to a lot of people here, and we dont take that lightly.Huff confirmed that the gun is licensed in Teexas and acknowledged that he wasnt as familiar with the New Jersey laws as he should have been.dddddddddddd He said that he felt his life has been threatened in the past, which is why he chooses to carry a gun.Im from Houston. You cant trust a lot of people in Houston, he said. Theres always somebody out to get you. Youve got to protect yourself. Even when Im back in Houston, I always have a gun on me, because theres been several instances in Houston where Ive lost a friend to gun violence, and he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, so why would I let that happen to me?The 25-year-old acknowledged that he was at the Eagles NovaCare facility Tuesday morning before the arrest but told ESPN that he made a stop before heading home over the Walt Whitman -- to pick up his gun. He would not reveal where.No, said Huff, when asked whether he brought the weapon into the facility. Im not Gilbert Arenas, bro. No. No. Im not going to bring a gun onto the premises. Im not going to bring a gun and put my life, put my teammates in jeopardy of anything. Thats not me. Its solely for protection, and thats that.Pederson had indicated Wednesday that there would be no change in Huffs status and that the plan was for him to play Sunday against the New York Giants while the team gathered more information.There have been a number of off-field incidents over the past several months since Pederson became coach. A dancer at a Philadelphia strip club accused wide receiver Nelson Agholor of sexual assault in June, though he was never charged. Linebacker Nigel Bradham was arrested in late July for allegedly striking a Miami hotel employee after a verbal altercation and was arrested in October at Miami International Airport after authorities say TSA workers found a loaded gun in his backpack.Before this move, the team has not reprimanded any of the players involved in these incidents.We have to take each of these separately, examine the facts that we have and then go through a process and make a decision thats in the best interest of this organization, Roseman said.Pederson was asked Wednesday if more discipline needs to be handed down, given the circumstances.I think that there comes a time when there could be some discipline like that. Obviously this could be a case again, he said. And I just want to make sure that Im doing right by these players and they are doing right by themselves and that were handling our business away from this building right. And if that means discipline at some point, then we address it at that point.
