The French XV to face the Springboks in the quarter-finals of the World Cup

To challenge the reigning South African world champions, Fabien Galthié did not reserve any surprises in his composition. Finally well established, Antoine Dupont will be associated at the hinge with the Bordeaux fly-half Matthieu Jalibert, while the wings will be occupied by the young Louis Bielle-Biarrey (20 years old) and Damian Penaud.

As against Italy in the last match of the group stage, the coach preferred to start Anthony Jelonch rather than François Cros. He will form the third line of the XV of France alongside Charles Ollivon and Grégory Alldritt.

Thomas Ramos – Damian Penaud, Gaël Fickou, Jonathan Danty, Louis Bielle-Biarrey – (o) Matthieu Jalibert, (m) Antoine Dupont (cap.) – Charles Ollivon, Grégory Alldritt, Anthony Jelonch – Thibaud Flament, Cameron Woki – Uini Atonio , Peato Mauvaka, Cyril Baille.

Substitutes: Pierre Bourgarit, Reda Wardi, Dorian Aldegheri, Romain Taofifénua, François Cros, Sekou Macalou, Maxime Lucu, Yoram Moefana.
