Before the match was canceled, Fabien Galthey and his staff scheduled a rotation in their starting squad to face Fiji last Sunday. Will the argument for the trip to Edinburgh continue?
In training open to the media on Wednesday evenings in Markosis, this was the trend in any case if we believe implementation. Used for finishing matches, the front row Gros-Chat-Bumba wore holders’ chasbels at the beginning of the season. The second line is Ditto for Romain Taofifenua, who will replace Paul Willemse. In the third line, François Croce is injured, it is Dylan Cretin who should start.
Teddy Thomas back as a starter?
The same opening position where Matthew Zalibert should possibly replace Rohenne Entac was injured in the thigh, and with Thomas Ramos’ tenure in place of Anthony Bauthier in the back, who was hurt in the knee a week earlier. Finally, back from injury, Teddy Thomas will find his place in the wing, with Gayle Fikou returning to center. Which will make a total of eight changes from the team that starts against Ireland on 31 October.
Be careful though: during the session, various associations were tested. The pillars Cyril Ballet and Mohammed Houas and hooker Julian Marchand played notable roles in some scenes with potential holders, as did Paul Willemsey in the second line, Arthur Vincent in the center, and Gabin Villier in the wing. Flanker Cameron Vokey and Couillod-Carbonell Kaj also worked with the opening team for a few minutes at the end of the season. Finally, note that the second line of LOU Killian Geraci had to shorten his session. The opening XV will be revealed on Friday afternoon.
