After a year 2019 ended on a nudge from Sébastien Vahaamahina and a pitiful elimination in the quarter-finals of the 2019 World Cup in Japan, the Blues have found color again in 2020. Worn by the superstar Antoine Dupont, captain Charles Ollivon, the blaster Virimi Vakatawa or the metronome Romain Ntamack, Fabien Galthié's men even climbed to 4th place in the ranking established by World Rugby.

Better, with a found attack and a united defense, the Blues have reconnected with their public, finishing second in the 2020 Six Nations Tournament, ahead of England on the sole difference in points.

Will the best French result in the Tournament since 2011 be enough to reassure the supporters just over two years before the 2023 World Cup, organized in France?
