In scrum-half Maxime Machenaud and hooker Guilhem Guirado, France have two persuasive pioneers. And all the pre-competition talk propose they’ve uncovered a genuine diamond in 19-year-old fly-half, Matthieu Jalibert.
Freshness, pizazz and a pressed Parisian stadium! All have been a dangerous mixed drink for Ireland before.
Something besides a win will disillusion for Joe Schmidt’s men, yet the guests have a plenty of unpracticed ability in their squad which could be abused.
New France mentor Jacques Brunel named young person Matthieu Jalibert at flyhalf for his group’s Six Nations opening diversion against Ireland on Saturday.
The 19-year-old Jalibert, who will make his global presentation at the Stade de France three months subsequent to beginning his first Top 14 coordinate with Bordeaux-Begles, has been combined with the in-shape Maxime Machenaud after Morgan Parra was precluded harmed.
The Final Countdown!!!
