    Yann David is injured? It will be interesting 12 and 13 selection.

    No he is fit but they're both outside center and Basta is better. David never passes the ball. I guess that's what you want from yout typical English centre but... :p

    Don't really know Benjamin Boyet. What sort of player is he?

    Nobody really knows Boyet apart from the Bourgoin fans :D . He's the classic, no nonsense Flyhalf. Good hands, good feet, good defense. The more all round 10 available I guess, since Elissalde is too small to play 10 at international level.
    Boyet is gonna be the back up for Trinh Duc who will be the starter with Parra at 9.

    I predict Bastareau to have an awesome 6N

    Recently he's been very good and agressive.


    Btw unrelated but how come we can't embedd youtube vids anymore ?

    It's funny because since the big fuss, he's progressed a lot as a rugby player (and as a person one would think). He's started to pass the ball, kick grubbers, running decoys, support lines etc.

    Plus he can also play #8. Ergo he is awesome :lol:

    What about Baby and his position? I read about him what he is 13, but played at fly-half, fullback and wing :D

    Baby is the new Castaignede: can play well anywhere from 10 to 15 but is always injured and doesn't have a "real" position. He'd be a star in 7's if it was popular in France.

    Ho do France plan on doing well this year with the worst out-half in the competition???

    Well his game management is not good.

    Other than that he is class. from what i've seen.

    He started for France when we beat the All Blacks last summer and scored a great try. No Irish player has ever started in a team that beat the All Blacks.

    Have you ever seen him play? He is absolutely class with ball in hand, his kicking has improved a lot. His goal kicking is average but the scrum half (either Parra or Elissalde) will do it.
    The only thing he lacks is experience, since he is very young and plays in a club that doesn't play the H-Cup. It will come quickly.

    Its just anytime Ive seen him play for France they seem to be loose snd unorganised unlike Beuaxis who, even though has his moments of sheer stupidity, can control a game very well...

    The french coaches don't like that kind of slow fly halves ala Beauxis or O'Gara. TD is our Sexton, if you will, with a lot of flair (but less kicking abilities). He hasn't had enough game time at international level to show his skills but I can tell you I have rarely seen a player with such attacking flair when his forwards are doing good.

    Boyet is good too, very allaround player, and a great boot, so if we are sinking he will replace Trinh Duc.
