French squad of the 2021 Autumn Internationals
France’s 42-man squad, which will face Argentina, New Zealand and Georgia in their fall international matches, has been named by coach Fabien Galthie.

Nine uncapped players have been selected alongside familiar faces such as half-backs Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack.

Camille Chat, Pierre-Louis Barassi and Teddy Thomas are all absent due to injury, as is Charles Ollivon, France’s captain at the Six Nations.

The hosts’ most recent result against their first opponents Argentina was a blow in the 2019 World Cup which France won 23-21. Can Galthie’s side have a more comfortable victory this time around as they build on impressive performances in 2021?

After the Pumas, they face Georgia in Bordeaux then return to the Stade de France for the “big one” against New Zealand.
