After a well-negotiated start against Spain (49-12), the Bleuets de France U20 are preparing to face the Baby Blacks for what should be the high point of their qualifying phase. Here is the France U20 composition for this decisive match France – New Zealand (Thursday, July 4 at 4:30 p.m.) of the 2024 World Cup.

U20 World Cup: France – New Zealand line-up

Mathis Castro-Ferreira kept the suspense going for a few days with a schedule disrupted by his logistical setbacks. On the 3rde line, a France U20 executive, had only a few days to reach South Africa from Marseille after the Top 14 final.

The Toulouse player is finally well aligned by the France U20 staff with the other executives such as Hugo Reus who will wear the captain’s stripes. He will be associated with Léo Carbonneau at the hinge.

The starting XV: Mosques – Bollengier, Brau-Boirie, Belaubre, Ferté – Reus (o), Carbonneau (m) – Malaterre, Castro-Ferreira, Quere Karaba – Kante Samba, Mézou – Aouad, Massa, Julien.

Substitutes: Lacombre, Boyer Gallardo, Duchêne, Liufau, Tolofua, Souverbie, Biasotto, Desperes.

France – New Zealand, a different story

The 2023 U20 World Cup went like a dream for Sébastien Calvet’s Bleuets, who outclassed all their opponents to claim a new world champion title.

This 2024 World Cup, however, promises to be a completely different adventure, particularly against the Baby Blacks, who the French delegation has announced will be at a much higher level than they were a year earlier when they emerged from the Covid lockdown.

After beating Spain, and before facing Wales on the last day of the qualifying phase, a victory against New Zealand would almost be synonymous with a ticket to the semi-finals for France U20.
