Led by team captain Anthony Jellonch again, France XV will play its third and final Test against Australia in Brisbane this Saturday (12 noon). After a win in Melbourne on Tuesday, France’s XV hopes to continue. The meeting will be followed on Canal +.
France XV have a meet for the third and final Test against Australia in Brisbane this Saturday. During the first clash (23-21) and then the revenge of the winners (28-26), the Blues will play a kind of beautiful game against the Wallabies to win this summer tour. To use the words of Captain Anthony Jellon, “to achieve something truly historic”.
For this occasion, Fabian Caldick will field his top 15 men. The meeting will be held from 12 noon Canal +. Four days after the victory in Melbourne, the younger generation who embarked on this tour in the Southern Hemisphere have the opportunity to achieve valuable success.
The last series won by the Blues in Australia was before 1972
On Friday, Fabian Chaldea confirmed the tenure of Pierre-Henry Asoko in the second tier, replacing Cyril Kazok. The state franchise player, who did not wear a blues jersey before this July, is continuing his second term in a row. Anthony Jellonch will wear the captain’s armor for the third time in ten days. Overall, Fabian Kaldik made seven changes to his starting squad compared to the second Test.
In its history, the French men’s rugby team has won only one series on its tours in Australia. If successful this Saturday, Fabian Clothy’s young blues could create a real record that has not been achieved since 1972. France’s XV has suffered six consecutive defeats since then, the most recent of which began in 2014.
