Rugby. Japan-France: Dylan Cretin & Thomas Jolmes are again holders!

It is hard to change a winning team after Japan's dominance (42-23). The only change to the Blues' starting XV for the second and final match of the summer tour was the appointment of Max Spring at the back. The XV France will record a tenth win in a row, a new achievement and a record for a series that began in 1931 and 1937.

Coach Fabien Galathie decided to renew 14 of the 15 Toyota winners. The great novelty is in N.15, where Jaminet (22 year old, 12 sel. The young Max Spring replaces him. The 21-year old Racing 92 player is coming off a promising season (9 Top 14 matches and 2 in Champions Cup). He shined in the Barbarians jersey, which was coached by the XV France in victory 52 -21 against England.

Coach Fabien Galthie stated that Maxime Lucu, the Blues' scrum half, will serve as the scorer in place of Jaminet. Spring is not a pure scorer. Rest assured, the hinge 100% "made in UBB", formed by Matthieu Janlibert (23, 16 caps) at opening and Lucu (229), at scrum. Jalibert was absent from the 2022 Six Nations Tournament. He is now in his second consecutive tenure.

The second line from Isere Thomas Jolmes (26 year old, 1 cap), and Yoan Tanga (25-year-old, 1 cap), both experienced their first selection last Wednesday, are now starting again. Like captain Charles Ollivon (29 year old, 24 cap) and the first Lyonnais Demba Bamba line (23-year-old, 24 caps), Toulousain Jean-Baptiste Gros (22) and 25-year-old, respectively)

Clermont winger Damian Penaud (25 year old, 33 caps), who is the author of a double victory against Japan, is also renewed. His Toulouse counterpart Matthis Lebel is on the left. Racingman Virimi Vakatawa (29 year old, 31 caps), who was also renewed, finds his partner from Bordeaux–Begles Yoram Möfana (21-year-old, 7 caps), a time of uncertainty after he was not injured during the week.

The Blues staff had six forwards and two backs. Finally, a change was made: Ibrahim Diallo, third line, (23 years, 1 cap), replaces his counterpart, Toulouse SelevasioTolofua, (25 years, 1 cap).
