Fabien Galthié will unveil the creation of XV of France to face Scotland on Friday (9pm) at the Stade de France this Wednesday.
The feat achieved against Wales has made its mark, but France’s XV should be able to benefit from the reinforcement of second-line Bernard le Roux against Scotland in a decisive match for the title in the six-nation tournament. Coach Fabian Galthey, forced to change his list of twenty-three players to be unveiled on Wednesday (12:30 pm), will have to do without Paul Willems, expelled against Welsh and two matches suspended. Uncertainty over Romain Taofifenua’s presence remained, a knee injury and was replaced against XV du Leek by Swan Rebadj in the middle of the first period, but he attended high-intensity training at Markosis on Tuesday. His final assessment was “very reassuring”, explained Thibault Giroud, the man in charge of France’s XV performance.

His partner in “Cage”, Paul Willems, received a red card for a clearing at neck level in the final quarter of an hour and an arm in the face of Wyn Jones, a Welsh left column. He should be replaced by Bernard Le Roux in the opening XV. Racing 92 players (31, 46 caps) missed the duel against Wales and before that, a thigh muscle soreness resulted in a trip to England (23–20 defeat). But he was recalled to the group to prepare for the final match against XV du Chardon.
To avoid any eventuality, the French management had withdrawn from Pau Baptist Passanti to consolidate the second line. Le Roux and Taofifenua took part in the training at Markosis in the early hours of this Tuesday. Until the staff decides to install Swan Rebbaj, who is the author of a very noticeable entry against Leak’s XV and which deals with some of Holder’s sequences on images of training provided by the FFR.
Favorite jailbreak on cretin?
At the inauguration, all the lights are green for the tenure of Romain Entamac, who earned a place in the Stade de France Matthew Jalibert (Concussion Protocol) after 30 minutes of play. The number 10 of Bordeaux-Begels has been seized for Friday and replaced by the group by Toulonis Louis Carbonell. This will be Ntamack’s first term since 31 October and the Blues’ win against Ireland (35-27) on the last day of the 2020 tournament. Toulouse had to give up after the fall tour due to thigh pain. Then he did not have to travel to Italy (50–10) and Ireland (15–13) due to a double jaw fracture in late December.
Other changes are not impossible at more game levels. Anthony Gelonch is applying for the starting spot in the third line with captain Charles Olivone and No. 8 Gregory Alldrit. Le Castras took the physical challenge by playing the last half hour on Saturday, relaying the performance of half a fig, half a grape to Dylan Cretin, the author.
Winger Teddy Thomas was also one of the least prominent Frenchmen against the “Red Dragons”. Center Arthur Vincent replaced him in the final twenty-five minutes, a result of his transfer to the Fikou wing, determining in the build-up to the victory test. After reversing the situation against Wales (32–30), XV of France, the leader in the standings, must make at least four attempts against Scotland and win by 21 points to win the title. This will be the first time since 2010.
Possible structure of the French XV:
Dulin – Penaud, Wakatawa, Ficou, Thomas – (O) Natamac, (M) DuPont – Olivon (Cap.), Alldrit, Jellonch – Taofifenua (or Rebadj), Le Roux – Haus, Marchand, Bell
