Who has made the cut to get in Jacques Brunel's recently announced French Six Nations squad? We take a look.

France Six Nations Squad 2019

Jacques Brunel has named his 31-man squad for the upcoming 2019 Six Nations championship with five uncapped players coming in.

Romain Ntamack, who was part of France’s U-20 World Cup winning side, has been included along with Dorian Aldegheri, Gregory Alldritt and Thomas Ramos.

Finally, South African born Paul Willemse makes it into the side after recently qualifying through residency grounds. He has played for Top 14 clubs Montpellier and Grenoble for more than three years now which made him eligible.

However, Alivereti Raka, the Fijian born winger who also received his citizenship in November last year fails to make it into the squad due to a hand injury.

Other injured players include Teddy Thomas, Yoann Maestri, Cedric Gomes Sa and Mathieu Babilot.

After securing his first cap in November, Demba Bamba, who was a teammate of Ntamack’s in their World Cup winning side, also makes it into the squad opening their Six Nations account against Wales on February 1st.

Guilhem Guirado remains as captain and finally Camille Lopez, Morgan Parra and Wesley Fofana all return after injury layoffs.
