Springboks to face a fierce rival in November Tests

 France will host Rugby World Cup champions the Springboks and finalist All Blacks during the next two November Test windows.

In November of 2024 and 2025, France is reportedly set to host the victorious South Africa and the runner-ups, New Zealand, in the Rugby World Cup

During their home World Cup, Les Bleus faced both Southern Hemisphere giants. They won the first match against the All Blacks, but lost the quarterfinal match by a single point to the Springboks.


As attention turns to the upcoming World Cup cycle, rumors regarding France’s next opponent have begun to appear.

Fabien Galthie’s charges will go to Argentina for the July internationals in 2024 after the Six Nations.

Los Pumas will play France in a two-match Test series, according to the Americas Rugby Championship. Les Bleus will probably also play Uruguay during their South American tour.

France and Argentina will play each other three times in 2024, with Galthie’s team playing Japan, New Zealand, and the Springboks in November, according to Midi Olympique.

Since Galthie became head coach, France has not visited Argentina since 2016. The two teams have only faced each other once, with Les Bleus emerging victorious 29–20 in 2021.

It would also be France’s third meeting with the All Blacks under Galthie, who has a perfect record versus New Zealand.

According to Midi Olympique, France will begin their November internationals against the defending double world champions, South Africa, who eliminated Les Bleus from their own World Cup.

Following the rematch with the Boks, Galthie’s team would host Fiji and Australia to cap up their Test season.

France has traditionally played the majority of their Test matches at the Stade de France, although they have lately moved their November internationals to different venues throughout the country. The reports do not specify which venues will host the matches, although the Stade de France will almost certainly host both the Springboks and the All Blacks.

The November Test window in 2025 is expected to be the last of its sort before World Rugby’s planned worldwide restructure, which would replace the regular July and November internationals.
