Game of Stones

France have selected one of the heaviest ever packs in the history of the 6 Nations –

French Pack:  8-Louis Picamoles, 7-Kevin Gourdon, 6-Damien Chouly, 5-Yoann Maestri, 4-Sebastien Vahaamahina, 3-Uini Atonio, 2-Guilhem Guirado (captain), 1-Cyril Baille.

Uini Atonio weighs in at 24 stone and the entire back row is made up of number 8s!

Their backs are pretty hefty too – especially the two Fijian wingers Virimi Vakatawa and Noa Nakaitaci – but at least England won’t have to face Big (Mathieu) Bastareaud who came late to the squad and isn’t on the bench tomorrow.

I’m just hoping that Eddie has a plan to move them around the park tomorrow so that they get knackered!
