France summon 37 for 2021 Six Nations preparations

France Head Coach Fabien Galthié has summoned 37 players to camp for the 2021 Six Nations preparations.

Fly-half Romain Ntamack has been left out the training squad after he suffered a broken jaw in a Top 14 match between Toulouse Bordeaux-Bègles in December 2020.  In his absence, France have Toulon play-maker Carbonel Louis and Bordeaux No.10 Matthieu Jalibert as his replacements.

Dupont Antoine, Virimi Vakatawa, captain Charles Ollivon and Brice Dulin have been included in the squad same as uncapped trio Donovan Taofifenua, Julien Delbouis and Georges-Henri Colombe.

The players will meet on January 24 in Nice to prepare for the first match against Italy scheduled for February 6.

France put up strong performances in 2020 but lost the six Nations title on point difference. They had level points with winners England who got 18 points.

The side also reached the finals of the Autumn Nations Cup, losing 22-19 to England after extra time, having fielded a young side due to quotas on the number of international matches France players can participate in.
