The Six nations closes this Friday with the postponed duel of the third date between France and Scotland, what can you see at 4:50 p.m., live on ESPN 3. The French team dreams of the title and for that they must win with a bonus point and by a difference greater than 21 points.
To face the decisive duel, Fabien Galthié decided to make five modifications: the most resonant is the inclusion of Romain Ntamack in place of Matthieu Jalibert, who played the previous four games as a starter, but due to a blow to the head in the duel against Wales, the decisive match is lost.
The other forced change occurs in the second line, where the Paul Willemse red card against Wales means that he is suspended, so he replaces not only him but his partner in the second row so that Swan Rebbadj and Bernard Le Roux wear shirts 5 and 4 respectively.
In the third row, Anthony Jelonch goes in place of Dylan Cretin as wing, with the latter moving to the bench, while Arthur Vincent is the last new face in the starting lineup.
The youngster from Montpellier, who scored a try in a first-round win over Italy, starts at center, with Gaël Fickou moving to wing and Teddy Thomas among the replacements.
On the Scotland side, the head coach Gregor Townsend has made four changes in its initial XV. Finn Russell and Ali Price They re-form as a midfield pair, with Chris Harris selected at center and hooker George Turner also returning to the starting lineup.
Head coach Gregor Townsend said: “The game against France gives us the opportunity to finish the Six Nations in our highest position in history. This is a great opportunity for us to face France, in Paris, as they are also looking to finish the championship on top. “
