Several Toulon players called within the France team

France’s head coach Jacques Brunel has decided to sideline several players, initially included within the team, ahead of the next Six Nations game against Italy: Jonathan Danty, Félix Lambey, Anthony Belleau, Louis Picamoles, Rémi Lamerat, Teddy Thomas, Arthur Iturria, Sekou Macalou and Alexandre Lapandry.
As a consequence, Jacques Brunel has called back eight other players and several of them play for Toulon: centre Mathieu Bastareaud, second row Romain Taofifenua and fly-half François Trinh-Duc will thus meet up with Guilhem Guirado and Hugo Bonneval, still included within the team.
