Third game for the Blues at this Rugby World Cup. Almost a week after the victory over Uruguay, the French will meet Namibia for the third match of Group A on Thursday evening at 21 o’clock. The match will be followed live and completely on Europe 1 and broadcast on France 2.
Three out of three for the French national team? As the winner of the first two matches against New Zealand (27-13) and Uruguay (27-12), the French XV will face Namibia for the third match of the Rugby World Cup this Thursday in Marseille . During this meeting, the leaders of the national team, who were rested against Uruguay, will return to the field. Antoine Dupont, Gaël Fickou, Cyril Baille and Charles Ollivon will be present at the Vélodrome Stadium.
The weakest opponent in the group
Namibia is the weakest opponent in the group. In the early days of the Rugby World Cup, they were dominated by Italy (52-8) and New Zealand (71-3). The Blues are therefore logically the favourites in this encounter against the Namibians, who have not won a single game in seven World Cup appearances.
Fans of the French XV will be able to listen to Europe 1 from 20 o’clock in the pre-match of Jacques Vendroux. The meeting will be followed live and in full, before a debriefing until 23 o’clock. on the television side, France 2 will broadcast the match from 20.50.
