The French Rugby Federation lifted the veil on Tuesday on the French women’s program until the end of the year, and included a double confrontation against England. The first test against the second best world nation in the World Rugby rankings will take place on Saturday, November 14 at the beginning of the afternoon (2.15 p.m. French time), probably in France in a location that remains to be confirmed.
