France Rugby Union Six Nations Betting Guide

The French are renowned for their flowing Rugby and when they let the ball go to their backs there is no better site in the game of Rugby Union. The French were not a permanent fixture in this tournament until after the first World War but they have proven to be a welcome addition to the Six Nations, winning the Grand Slam in 2010 and they are hoping to return to that sort of form this year.

France Background

Rugby was first started in France in 1872 when a group of students introduced the game to the Parisians and it took them 34 years to play their Test match against New Zealand in Paris. France played on and off in the Home Nations until they joined them to form a Five Nations tournament in 1910 but it was after 1947 that saw them take their place in the line up to this day. France became a major force in the 1950s and 1960s and in 1954 they won their first Five Nations title along with England and Wales.

France has been threatening to win a Rugby World Cup having been beaten in the final in 1987 and 1999. French rugby legends Philippe Sella and Serge Blanco are names that will go down in the archives of French Rugby football. France play their rugby at the Stade de France which was built for the Football World Cup in 1998 and hosted the Rugby World Cup final in 2007.
