    Under 19s! Great for future French talent
    Obviously the FFR is has a little cash at the moment..

    Still nothing from the senior team.

    From people in the know standouts are prop Hugo salabio, 2nd rower Jayson goffin, halfback baptistie fabre, fullback robin brochon and prop Matthieu cozza who are are regulars in elite 1.

    What about Baby Alan? Is he not a bit young for this age group?

    Maybe rumoured but I haven't seen confirmation. That'd be a great series.

    Is there anyway of finding out what France is doing? Can we email or ask social media accounts?

    A lot of these kids are already playing in and are standouts in elite 1 but they need to move to English super league or championship clubs before their careers start stalling or go backwards.

    Salford showed the way with Theo fages and Leeds are apparently taking on halfback baptiste fabre. More should also take the plunge.
