There have been so many injury stories in the news and France have not gone unscathed. In the build-up to their World Cup warm-up match against Fiji it has been revealed star fly-half Romain Ntamack has been ruled out of a home World Cup with an ACL injury.


Ntamack sustained the injury in France's narrow win against Scotland last weekend. He was not the only French star to pick up an issue, with prop Cyril Baille out for five to six weeks with a calf issue.

Fiji, meanwhile, head into the match with winning momentum after beating Tonga, Samoa and Japan recently.

It will be a tricky task to defeat France in their own back yard, but if they could execute the win, it would lay down a huge marker for the World Cup.

Fiji are in Pool C with Wales, Australia, Georgia and Portugal but are among the nations being spoken about with a chance of squirming through to the knockout stages.
