France vs Namibia Preview

France have endured two contrasting victories so far. Les Blues started with a morale-boosting 27-13 win over three-time champions New Zealand, but they have flattered to deceive during their 27-12 success over Uruguay.

But Namibia have suffered a pair of commanding defeats, going down 52-8 against Italy and 71-3 against the All Blacks.

Fabien Galthie has made 12 changes from France’s win over Uruguay with the likes of Antoine Duport returning, while Cameron Woki, Louis Bielle-Biarry and Anthony Jelonch are the only survivors.
