Third match for the Blues in this Rugby World Cup. Almost a week after their victory against Uruguay, the French face Namibia this Thursday evening, at 9 p.m., for the third match of Group A. A meeting to follow live and in full on Europe 1, and broadcast on France 2 .
Three out of three for the France team? Winner of its first two matches, against New Zealand (27-13) and Uruguay (27-12), the French XV faces Namibia this Thursday in Marseille for its third match of the World Cup rugby. During this meeting, the executives of the national selection, who were left to rest against Uruguay, will return to the field. Antoine Dupont, Gaël Fickou, Cyril Baille and Charles Ollivon will be there at the Vélodrome stadium.
The weakest opponent in the group
Namibia is the weakest opponent in the group. During the first days of the Rugby World Cup, they were dominated by Italy (52-8) and New Zealand (71-3). The Blues are therefore logically favorites during this meeting against the Namibians who have not won a single match in seven participations in the World Cup.
Thursday evening from 8 p.m. on Europe 1, and from 8:50 p.m. on France 2
Fans of the French XV will be able to listen to Europe 1 from 8 p.m. for the pre-match presented by Jacques Vendroux. The meeting will be followed live and in full, before a debrief until 11 p.m. On the television side, France 2 will broadcast the match from 8:50 p.m.
