Another manager, absent since him for longer, is also expected in the starting XV. The pillar Cyril Baille, who had injured a calf during the preparation match of the Blues against Scotland, in Saint-Etienne on August 12, is indeed expected to start.

Ramos - Penaud, Fickou, Danty, Bielle-Biarrey - (o) Jalibert, (m) Dupont - Ollivon, Alldritt, Jelonch - Flament, Woki - Atonio, Mauvaka, Baille.
