In the first line, Cyril Baille will therefore take its place with the XV of France. A very important return if we are to believe Sylvain Marconnet, former French international. “ To be world champions, the Blues need him. He has progressed enormously since his debut with the XV of France. For me too, it has become a world reference. He’s the best left pillar on the planet. Beyond his abilities, there is this role he plays within the group. With Antoine Dupont, Julien Marchand, Anthony Jelonch and Grégory Alldritt, they form the backbone of this team. They are like the five fingers of the hand. When one is on the side, it hurts the others. But, when they are together, they are even stronger “, he assured the Parisian about Cyril Baille.
