Six Nations 2019 - Un réarrangement des chaises longues
So, it appears that France's abject defeat at Twickenham was all the fault of the half backs, as Morgan Parra and Camille Lopez have been ejected entirely from the French 23 to face Scotland in Paris this weekend.
While Dupont and Ntamack (albeit out of position, will Brunel ever learn?) are undoubtedly enterprising selections, the chopping and changing at half back is symptomatic of all that is wrong with the French national team currently.
Otherwise it is a case of shuffling the deckchairs (or chaises longues) with the hapless Huget and ponderous Bastareaud somehow inexplicably retained.
For all their injuries Scotland must - amazingly - be favourites for this one. So maybe it's worth a cheeky punt on France?!
