Fabien Galthié: "Continue to progress to be even better"


The coach commented this Friday noon on his first team composition for 2023. And mentioned the objectives of the Blues on their Six Nations Tournament which will start on Sunday in Rome.

Ethan Dumortier's first selection

“We were following him.

He came to Marcoussis two years ago as a training partner.

He was then sailing between the 7 and Lyon.

He had already made a strong impression on us.

Ethan (Dumortier) has had a form of blossoming and blossoming since then.

But I would like to say a word about Gabin (Villière, victim of a fibula fracture in training and forfeited for the entire Six Nations Tournament, editor's note), have a big thought for him.

He didn't want to let go of the shirt.

He was ready and came to ''match'' in our training without concession.

Unfortunately for him, he got hurt.

His state of mind and his motivation carry the XV of France, contribute to push the XV of France towards the heights.

I also have a thought for the Toulon club and its supporters.

Ramos rather than Jaminet at the back

“Melvyn is not even in the 23, it shows how complicated it is.

He wants to be in the 15, Romain Buros too.

And all the French backs want to be in this XV of France.

Thomas Ramos came for his shirt with authority.

He responded in November.

Melvyn did very good training.

In emulation, he is there.

He is part of the France team project.

He brings a lot of strength to this project.”

The first of Le Garrec on the bench

“Nolann Le Garrec already has experience with us, it's the interest of training at 42. He had been in contact as training partners with the France under-20 team.

Then, last June, he played with the British Barbarians, who were a France bis team, to face England at Twickenham.

He then worked with us during the tour in Japan.

He had not been capped but he lived for three weeks the experience of the France team.

We feel in him, despite his young age, maturity.

You don't have to wait when you're ready.

Unfortunately we have injuries: Maxime Lucu, Baptiste Couilloud who only joined us in the 2nd week.

We therefore judged that today, the most likely to get on the score sheet was Nolann.

What objective in this Tournament

“What is the meaning we want to give to our competition?

Gather, federate, share our passion.

What are we doing in this competition?

The voice of the leaders was unanimous: continue.

After finishing twice 2nd, then 1st with the Grand Slam, we consider, they consider, that the path is not over.

That we must continue to be even better, continue to progress.

And no matter what, we're going to keep moving forward."
