The galthie era

Postby paddy no 11 » Wed Jan 15, 2020 1:35 pm

Great selection to start- gas has set his stall out to win the 2023 world cup and won't be relying on drafting in a few fijians

I'm going to have a heavy bet at 12/1 to win the world cup (on France)

Nasty injury to the impressive ertillard v scatlets unfortunately

Those odds will shorten significantly when France win this season's 6 nations!

Not an inch of expérience in that sélection. But bold, and if things go well for a change, they have the making of a top three team.
Whatever happens in the six nations they ll be a better team with the expérience.

Leroux is the only one bringing some real experience in the locks, with Tao eventually..

But it's strange that Ituria is not in the mix, he must have done something wrong during the WC...

For the game coming I'm quite excited, I thougt we'd have no chance against an experimented and very good english side, but when I'm looking at our players I can't help to think something great is coming... maybe not the first game but ...who knows ? If they gel and get parity up front, our backline can go through walls..

Need power up front Tao should start.

Le roux is not French not an international 2nd row or an international backrow

Leroux has got the french nationality and the can bring some bulk and grinta to this very young team.

Not so big really, as his replacement will be Julien Marchand, who in my opinion is a future captain of France.

Yeah, he’s been on top form but you’ll find Marchand a different player. Chat is a strong physical player but Marchand is quick and very effective in the loose and has good hands. Chat would probably have been the starting 2 but Marchand will make his mark.

I agrée that marchand is the complète package, i love him a lot..he is the future...but right now I don' t see him bringing what Chat can bring. .
