Galthié picks four uncapped players in France squad

France head coach Fabien Galthié has called up four uncapped players for the Autumn Nations Cup, as Les Bleus aim to build on their second-place finish in the Six Nations.

Flanker Francois Cros is the only senior player to miss out on the 28-man squad after he broke his metatarsal during the 35-27 win against Ireland on Saturday.

In total there are four players who could celebrate their first caps – hooker Teddy Baubigny, second row Cyril Cazeaux, centre Julien Delbouis and winger Gabin Villière.

Grégory Alldritt, Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack, all nominated for the Six Nations’ Player of the Championship, are in the squad alongside captain Charles Ollivon.

France missed out to England on the Six Nations title on points difference but claimed four wins from five matches, including their first victory in Wales for a decade.

Les Bleus open their Autumn Nations Cup campaign against Fiji on November 15 before moving on to play Scotland – who they lost to earlier this year – and Italy.

They end their campaign on Finals Weekend, facing the team that’s ranked in the same position from Group A.
