The staff of the Blues communicated on Monday the list of additional players called up to prepare the match against Japan at 42 on Sunday in Toulouse (2 p.m.). They are seventeen because three players who were in the group this weekend are forfeited (Antoine Dupont, who received a red card, Thibaud Flament and Cyril Baille, affected).
The young Racing 92 player Nolann Le Garrec (20) was called up. In the absence of Dupont, they will therefore be three scrum halves, with Maxime Lucu and Baptiste Couilloud. Left props Clément Castets and Dany Priso return to Marcoussis, where they will join Reda Wardi.
The 17 players called
Forwards : Alexandre Bécognée (Montpellier), Clément Castets (Stade Français), Dylan Cretin (Lyon), Jordan Joseph (Pau), Thomas Lavault (La Rochelle), Dany Priso (Toulon), Yoan Tanga (La Rochelle), Florent Vanverberghe (Castres ), Florian Verhaeghe (Montpellier)
Rears : Pierre-Louis Barassi (Toulouse), Pierre Boudehent (La Rochelle), Anthony Bouthier (Montpellier), Ethan Dumortier (Lyon), Samuel Ezeala (Clermont), Émilien Gailleton (Pau), Nolann Le Garrec (Racing 92), Alivereti Raka (Clermont)
