Antoine Dupont - Half Melee

Best player in the world in 2021, the captain of the XV de France is the boss of the team. An excellent defender, creatively offensive, he is the conductor of Les Bleus and the current rugby star in France. His position allows him to command attacks. He brings the ball into the fray and acts as a link between the forwards and the backs.

Romain Ntamack - Opening half

Son of Émile (46 selections), Romain plays at the opening half position and often uses his foot. A good defender, he has a very reliable foot that allows him to offer variety to the offensive game of the XV of France. And her delicious mustache will not leave fans of ovalia indifferent.

Charles Ollivon - Third line

Before Dupont, the captaincy was for Ollivon. The third line is a vocal leader and on the pitch, his reading of the game and his technical qualities make him a member of the team. He missed the Grand Slam at the 2022 Six Nations Championship because of a cruciate ligament rupture. He will have the opportunity to take a great revenge at the World Cup.

Thibaud Flament - Second line

The Stade Toulousain player impressed at the last Six Nations Championship, establishing himself as one of the very best players in the group. Aerial and mobile for its size, it will be a key asset for Fabien Galthié at the World Cup.

Fabien Galthié - Breeder

Like Harry Potter, Fabien Galthié never leaves his iconic and delightful pair of glasses. And like the sorcerer, Galthié seems to have a magic wand as the French team has taken a positive turn since he arrived on the bench in 2019. Under Galthié, the Blues initially shone with a strategy of dispossession and would like to strive for more offensive control at the World Cup.
