WOMEN'S RUGBY WORLD CUP. Second match for the French rugby team this Saturday, October 15 against England.
[Updated October 15, 2022 at 7:20 a.m.] Already the moment of truth for Les Bleues? After winning their first match against South Africa with style, the French team has a very important meeting on Saturday October 15 against the English, one of the big favorites of the competition. For this encounter, the coach has decided to make very few changes. The third row and usual captain Gaëlle Hermet is back in the group as a substitute while hooker Agathe Sochat (38 selections) returns to her position, while Montpellier's Laure Touyé is relegated to the bench.
For Emilie Boulard, despite the last defeats against the English, you have to believe in it. "Of course, we don't win the last matches against them, but we're never far away, so we know it's possible. Obviously, there's a little annoyance because we want to get there, but our motivation is also increased tenfold, as well as our desire to beat them, especially during an event like this, where the cards are going to be completely reshuffled. So yes, we are going to be outsiders but it's almost better, because at least we will be able to gauge themselves and really enter the competition".
