The French rugby team, which will play its first matches of the next six Nations tournaments (February 6 to March 20), has had his veil removed. Blues coach Fabian Galtic communicated a list of 37 players on Monday, including a Clermontoise.
Surprisingly, Damien Penard’s contribution against Powell (42-31) with ASM on Sunday was once again decisive, although the Asmist winger did not win a single Test, but chose the XV tricolor’s winter campaign for the news.
Meanwhile, Sebastian Bessie, Oliveri Racca and Jean-Pascal Barack, who were called up by Galtic to the French team for some matches in the new Autumn Nations Cup, are not in the group of 37 that was unveiled on Monday.
In the evidence for Racing 92 since the start of the season, young winger Donovan Tavofifanuva (21), who trained at ASM Clermont, on the other hand, was one of the players called up by Fabian Galtic.
The list includes Tallouse opener Romain Natamak, Leon Pillar Demba Bamba, who lost his jaw fracture, and some notable absentees seeking treatment for a cervical injury.
France’s XV will start the 2021 tournament in Italy in a month (February 6) and play their first match in Stade de France against Scotland on February 27 (March 3).
