2023-09-19T10:25:33.845Z

Highlights: Coach Fabien Galthié has called on his senior players to face Namibia this Thursday in Marseille, Cyril Baille and Jonathan Danty. Thomas Ramos at the back, Damian Penaud on a wing, Gaël Fickou in the center, the hinge formed by Antoine Dupont and Matthieu Jalibert are recalled against a team strangled by Italy (52-8) then by New Zealand (71-3) last Friday. Grégory Alldritt is forfeited last minute.

As expected after the training of the last two days, Fabien Galthié has made a vast reshuffle to face Namibia, this Thursday evening (21 hours), in Marseille, the third group match of the Blues in this World Cup. As the coach unveiled this Tuesday noon in Aix-en-Provence where the Tricolores have established their base camp, the executives, who had brilliantly won the opening match against New Zealand (27-13) on September 8, will be back a week after the poor performance of the understudy against Uruguay (27-12) in Villeneuve-d'Ascq.

Grégory Alldritt is forfeited last minute. The 3rd line center felt discomfort in a knee during Monday afternoon's training.

Four newcomers are to be noted compared to the winners of the All Blacks. The pillar Cyril Baille, who injured a calf during the preparation match of the Blues against Scotland, in Saint-Etienne on August 12, makes his return on this occasion, preferred to Reda Wardi. Three-quarter centre Jonathan Danty, who suffered a hamstring injury, also in a friendly against Australia on August 27 at the Stade de France, finds his place at the expense of Yoram Moefana, who finds himself on the bench.

The third line wing Anthony Jelonch, already returned against Uruguay from a long absence due to a rupture of the cruciate ligaments of the left knee, continues to find rhythm. Finally, the young winger Louis Bielle-Biarrey, 20, was preferred to Gabin Villière, who had played the last two games in full.

The France XV against Namibia, Thursday (21pm): Ramos – Penaud, Fickou, Danty, Bielle-Biarrey – (o) Jalibert, (m) Dupont (cap) – Ollivon, Jelonch, Cros – Flament, Woki – Atonio, Mauvaka, Baille.

Replacements: Wardi, Bourgarit, Aldegheri, Taofifenua, Boudehent, Couilloud, Moefana, Jaminet.
