RUGBY at 7. A Toulousain, a Clermontois and a Lyonnais with France 7 for the World Cup

Why was the Rugby 7s World Cup a success?Four years after a memorable American edition in San Francisco, it is on the Cape side that the Rugby 7s World Cup will take place. The best nations in the discipline will compete from September 9 to 11, 2022 in South Africa. A competition which comes just after the end of the world circuit and which saw Australia win the title for the first in its history. By will they come to do the double? Fiji, New Zealand or the Blitz Boks will be serious candidates while France will try to do better than in 2018. “ The France 7 team will rely on its young high-potential guard and benefit from the experience of a few executive players who picked up the pace during the last outing, which will allow us to bravely play our luck. commented Jérôme Daret on the FFR website.VIDEO.

Speeding, Nelson Épée takes the ring road to drop off the English defenseThe France 7 coach notably retained the bombshell Nelson Epée (Toulouse), the playmaker Jean-Pascal Barraque (Clermont) or the precious Tavite Veredamu (Lyon). The Top 14 will also be represented by Bayonnais Capilla and Brive Grandidier-Nkanang. Laugel, Riva and even Parez executives will also be part of the adventure. “The atypical format of the competition will not give us a second chance. The World Cup will require us to be very adaptable and demanding. In this competition, we will have no room for error. Players will need to show composure in matches where winning is paramount.“Find out why:No room for error with the new format of the Rugby World Cup Sevens 2022No room for error with the new format of the Rugby World Cup Sevens 2022
