After the recall of several executives from the 2004 generation a few days ago, the team composition was announced this Wednesday morning. Deprived of several major players due to club duplication in recent weeks, Sébastien Calvet was this time able to compose as he wanted for this crunch.

Sacred in South Africa during the last U20 World Cup, the hinge made up of Léo Carbonneau and Hugo Reus will be aligned again. The Brive scrum half will be the third player to captain the Bleuets in this tournament.

Behind them, Kalvin Gourgues and Léon Darricarrère will play in the center, supervised by Nathan Bollengier and Théo Attissogbe, who will play at home. It is another Briviste, Mathis Ferté, who will find number 15. On the bench this time, Zinedine Aouad will be replaced by his teammate Zaccharie Affane accompanied by Lino Julien and hooker Barnabé Massa to form the first line.

The full squad to face England:

Holders: Ferté – Attissogbe, L. Darricarrère, Gourgues, Bollengier – (o) Reus, (m) L. Carbonneau (cap.) – Quere Karaba, Gazzotti, Castro-Ferreira – Huchet, Descube – Affane, Massa, Julien.

Substitutes: Couly, Aouad, Duchêne, Corso, Si. Tolofua, Malaterre, Souverbie, Biasotto.
