Antoine Dupont, the centerpiece of the XV of France


The XV of France receives Scotland on Friday evening for the last match of the Six Nations Tournament (9 p.m.). The Blues have the opportunity to win a trophy that has eluded them for 11 years. For the Habs, the challenge is immense but they will once again be able to count on Antoine Dupont, the sparkling Toulouse scrum half who has become the centerpiece of the team.

The XV of France faces Scotland on Friday night at the Stade de France. It is a decisive match for the Blues who, if they win with the offensive bonus and 21 points difference, would win the Six Nations Tournament, a first since 2010. For this major challenge, the Blues will be able to count on their scrum half Antoine Dupont, the rare pearl that French rugby was waiting for, the nugget that the whole world envies us.

Three tries in four games

At 24, he alone symbolizes the renewal of this united and conquering French team. A small player (1m74, 82 kg), the native of Gers speaks as much about his power as his speed. Acrobat, he is endowed with a sense of the game that often makes him decisive and his strokes of genius can turn any match upside down. Since the start of the Tournament, the scrum half from Stade Toulouse has scored three tries (against Italy, England and Wales) and has become one of the Blues’ trump cards. “We have emerging players that we talk about very positively, players who inspire in the group, but also outside. Antoine Dupont is one of these figures,” confirms coach Fabien Galthié.

Despite his irresistible rise, this son of breeders keeps his feet on the ground. Last year, however, he had already been voted best player of the Tournament, a first for a Frenchman. Against Scotland on Friday night, Antoine Dupont will be associated with opening half Romain Ntamack, his club teammate. He once again has the opportunity to show the extent of his talent and why not lead the Blues on the roof of Europe. This decisive match will be watched live on Europe 1 and on Europe1.fr.
