Les Bleus will also face Argentina on 6 November in Paris, Georgia a week later in Bordeaux before playing the All Blacks on 20 November at the Stade de France.

Fabien Galthie's men face the three-time Webb Ellis trophy winners in the World Cup opener on 8 September, 2023.

They are set to head to Australia in July for three Tests in their first fixtures since finishing second in this season's Six Nations.
