Here are the matches from the 2nd day of this Rugby World Cup with the French XV which opens the ball this Thursday.
Second week of competition in this Rugby World Cup. As required by the regulations and because of the intensity of the matches, the World Cup was extended in order to preserve the health of the players by leaving at least 5 days of rest between matches. This is why the XV of France launched this second day of the group stage this Thursday, September 14 against Uruguay. At the Pierre Mauroy stadium in Lille, Fabien Galthié and his staff have decided to rotate the squad with executives Antoine Dupont, Charles Ollivon, Gael Fickou and Gregory Alldritt who are all left to rest. A choice that did not necessarily pay off since even if the Blues won, the victory took shape in the last 5 minutes.
This second day does not necessarily offer big shocks, apart from perhaps an Australia-Fiji on Sunday September 17 and an England - Japan on the same day. On the other hand, strong scores will certainly be there with a New Zealand - Namibia or even a South Africa - Romania.
