France reveal line-up for Summer Test in Nice

​France have named the 23 that will challenge Scotland in Saturday’s Summer Test opener at the Allianz Riviera in Nice.

Jacques Brunel, France Rugby Head Coach, when asked about facing Scotland said:

"It may be a team that looks like us. They are unpredictable, able to show beautiful things and sometimes miss their date. They took 31 points against England in the last tournament in the first half. Then they scored 38 in the second act. This is expected, a team capable of surprising his opponent.”
