Antoine Dupont, Galthié speaks his mind

The French national team will have to do without its boss in the next Tournament. Antoine Dupont has opted to take part in the Olympic Games with the French Rugby Sevens team. It’s an opportunity I’m sure I won’t get any other time in my life to try and take part. It’s an incredible event.

The French national team will have to do without its boss in the next Tournament. Antoine Dupont has opted to take part in the Olympic Games with the French Rugby Sevens team. It’s an opportunity I’m sure I won’t get any other time in my life to try and take part. It’s an incredible event. We all have memories of watching the 100m finals, the swimming finals, because we’ve had French people win. We’ve all had memories of Olympic Games that have marked us.

I can’t answer that question because the selection committee hasn’t met yet. The ranking hasn’t been done, confided Fabien Galthié in the columns of Midi Olympique when asked about the hierarchy in the number 9 position. At scrum-half, we’ll have the World Cup players (Maxime Lucu and Baptiste Couilloud), as well as Baptiste Serin who has been through the preparation and Nolann Le Garrec who has been with us several times. We may add other potential players.
