The coach Fabien Gathié and the manager of the Blues Raphaël Ibanez had to face a multitude of forfeits.

To the long-time injured, captain Charles Ollivon (who hopes to return for the Six Nations Tournament) and scrum-half Baptiste Serin (until December), added Arthur Vincent, the center of Montpellier, seriously injured in a knee, and absent for the rest of the season, the 2nd row racingman Baptiste Pesenti., victim of a dislocation of a shoulder, the pillar of Montpellier Mohamed Haouas, handicapped by a muscle injury, and the sky and white winger Teddy Thomas, hamstring injury in mid-September.

Only two novices make their appearance: Thibault Flament (Stade Toulouse) and Florian Verhaeghe (Montpellier).

Among the 42 players summoned for each gathering,

A minimum of 5 clubs must have between 1 and 3 selected players.

This provision is intended to ensure that this extended group is distributed among the greatest number of clubs.

In addition, the organization of the day on Wednesday will be arranged in such a way that the 14 players not selected will return to their homes on

Wednesday evening, instead of Thursday last season.
