XV of France: Dupont, Ntamack, Jalibert and Atonio among the 14 recalled by the Blues

As expected, the Toulouse hinge Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack was recalled by Fabien Galthié for the last week of preparation before the start of the Tournament against Italy on Sunday. They are notably accompanied by the right pillar from La Rochelle Uini Atonio and the opener of the UBB Matthieu Jalibert

Back to competition with Stade Toulousain, Saturday night during the home defeat against Racing, Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack are back in the Blues group. Despite this result, the first named, scrum-half and captain of the France team, gained playing time: he had not played since mid-December and a trip to the Champions Cup in Cardiff. His club teammates Cyril Baille, François Cros, Anthony Jelonch and Matthis Lebel will also be on the trip.

Substitute during the defeat in Deflandre against Montpellier, the right pillar Uini Atonio will also take the direction of Carpiagne where the XV of France has been on training for a week. The versatile three-quarter Jules Favre and the third line Paul Boudehent will accompany him.

In addition, Matthieu Jalibert, on rest since a thigh injury against the Scarlets, was also summoned by the coach. The UBB opener has not played since.
