Jacques Brunel has named his team for Saturday's rematch with Scotland at Murrayfield in the buildup to World Cup 2019.
After putting a whooping on the Scots a week ago in Nice, sprits must be flying high within the French camp.
Much ado has been made about France's poor performance over the past couple of years, but this is a country that simply knows how to pull it together for World Cups.
🏴🇫🇷 Deuxième match de préparation à la Coupe du Monde ce samedi pour les Bleus ! Le #XVdeFrance se rend à Edimbourg pour y affronter une nouvelle fois l'Écosse ! Voici la composition de votre équipe ! #NeFaisonsXV #ECOFRA pic.twitter.com/lnSMQ4hv1u— France Rugby (@FranceRugby) August 20, 2019
A new guard of French faces has emerged: youngsters like Antoine Dupont, Gregory Aldritt, Romain Ntamack, Damian Penaud, and Alvareti Raka have breathed fresh life into an underperforming team.
If Les Bleus can kick on from their big win a week ago, they are a dark horse for a deep World Cup run.
