France‘s 42-man squad to face Argentina, New Zealand and Georgia in their autumn Internationals fixtures has been named by coach Fabien Galthie. Nine uncapped players have been selected alongside familiar faces such as half-backs Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack.
Camille Chat, Pierre-Louis Barassi and Teddy Thomas all miss out through injury, as does Charles Ollivon, who captained France in the Six Nations.
The hosts’ most recent result against their first opponents Argentina was a nail-biter at the 2019 World Cup that France won 23-21. Can Galthie’s side secure a more comfortable victory this time as they build on impressive performances in 2021?
After the Pumas, they play Georgia in Bordeaux and then return to the Stade de France for the ‘big one’ against New Zealand.
