A year after the World Cup, France and New Zealand are new to the program on November 16

We are not the ones who will complain. After the emotional heights of the encounter in November 2021 (40-25 win) and last September in the World Cup opener (27-13 win), the French XV will meet New Zealand during its tour next fall. The French Rugby Federation confirmed on Monday that the match will be played on November 16 at the Stade de France.

The Blues will play a total of three Test matches, according to the full Autumn Nations Series schedule revealed by the Six Nations, organizing this autumn tour of teams from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere. On November 9, they will face Japan, who are still at the Stade de France, “two years after the last encounter between the two selections in Toulouse (where) the Blues won 35-17, including a brace from Damien Benaud.” He refers to FFR in his press release.

England and then Ireland are also on the black list

At the end of this tour, Fabien Galtier's men will return to Argentina on November 22 in Saint-Denis. The reunion, just a few months after their summer blues tour with the Pumas, took place in July.

Among the expected shocks during this autumn tour, we will remember the exciting match between England and the All Blacks on November 2nd at Twickenham, which was followed by Ireland receiving these same New Zealanders a week later in Dublin, as well as the meeting in London between the Englishman and the South African on November 16th, in A rematch of the last World Cup semi-final.
