France

Autumn Nations Cup runners-up France will face Australia in three Tests this summer after their July tour Down Under was confirmed by the FFR.

Les Bleus will play three Tests in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane against the Wallabies, their first meeting for five years and the first in Australia since 2014.

The first Test will take place at the SCG on Wednesday 7 July, the next six days later at AAMI Park in Melbourne on the 13 July.

The final Test will then be in Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium four days later on Saturday 17 July.

France’s Brice Dulin voted Player of the Tournament

Bernard Laporte, the president of the FFR, said: “After exchanges and approval from the required public authorities, the Fédération Française de Rugby is delighted to be able to announce a summer tour of three matches which should be of a very high level.

“It’s a great opportunity for the France team to take on one of the top southern hemisphere sides who have played their part in the history of world rugby like Australia.

“We are sure that our Bleus, who have an increasing popularity in France with every game, will be desperate to continue to perform on the international stage and show that France are one of the top nations in world rugby.”
