Tournament of six nations: without Luca, Woka and Danti, but with eight newcomers, including Delbuy and Le Garrec.

Coach Fabien Galtier revealed on Tuesday the list of 42 players called up to prepare for the Six Nations Tournament starting next Sunday. The Blues will meet in Capbreton (Landes) for the first leg in Italy on Sunday 5 February.

In the absence of many injured players (Cameron Vaukey, Jean-Baptiste Gros, Maxime Lucu, Arthur Vincent, Jonathan Danti or Gabin Villiers), we nevertheless find a solid core of Blues who won the Grand Slam a year ago and intend to to defend his title. Antoine Dupont, confirmed as captain, is apparently present, as are other leaders Julien Marchand, Gregory Aldritt, Anthony Jelonch, Gael Ficou, Romain Ntamak or Damien Peno.

Let us note the return to the third line of François Cros, who was absent during the November round, who will compete with Charles Olivon and Anthony Jelonch for a place in the starting XV. At the end were the last two incumbents, Melvin Jaminet and Thomas Ramos.

The list also includes eight no-tackle players, most of whom have already visited France’s group at previous training camps: third line Paul Budean (La Rochelle), scrum half Leo Coli (Montpellier) and Nolan Le Garrec (” Racing-92″). centers Julien Delbuy (Stade Français) and Emilien Gayeton (Poe), forwards Ethan Dumortier (Lou) and Louis Biel-Biarré (Bordeaux Beagle) and defender Romain Bureaux (Bordeaux Beagle) ).

After Italy, the Blues have an appointment in Ireland on February 11 to deliver a shock against the first nation in the world. This will be followed by matches against Scotland (February 26), England (March 11) and Wales (March 18).
