Wallabies vs France Rugby Game for the 2022 Autumn Nations Series, the French National team and the Wallabies will face each other at the Stade de France on 5 November!

This will be the 51st confrontation between these two giants of world rugby. A match worthy of a potential World Cup final, a meeting not to be missed after all!

The French squad will be looking to build momentum with a victory ahead of matches against South Africa and Japan whilst . Australia will want the win just as much with fixtures against Ireland and Wales to come.

The Wallabies have gotten a twofold portion of uplifting news heading into their match against France, with transcending second-rower Will Skelton rejoining the crew and back-rower Pete Samu got free from a serious back physical issue, which could prompt a return this end of the week.

A day after Australia’s 16-15 victory over Scotland, the sight of Skelton marching into the team hotel in France was thoroughly enjoyed by teammates who haven’t seen the 203-centimetre La Rochelle star since last year’s spring tour.

Skelton was always going to miss Australia’s first match against Scotland, given the fixture fell outside the international window. He won’t be available for the last clash of the tour either, against Wales in Cardiff on November 26.

The 30-year-old, who won a Super Rugby title with the Waratahs in 2014, has unfinished business at Test level.

From 21 Tests, Skelton has played just 614 minutes – an average of 29 minutes per game – which equates to just over 10 hours of Test rugby.

Everything you need to know about the Wallabies Rugby spring tour

Australia’s upcoming spring tour has been compared to an England Six Nations campaign, just without the weeks off in between.

The Wallabies begin on Saturday (Sunday morning AEDT) with a battle against Scotland in Edinburgh before a clash with France the following weekend in Paris. Then it’s off to Florence to take on Italy, across to Dublin to play Ireland, before a fifth and final match against Wales on November 26 (November 27 AEDT) to round out the tour.

There’s good and bad news for Wallabies fans when it comes to the times of matches, which are all set to be broadcast on Stan Sport.

The Scotland (3.30am) and Wales (2.15am) fixtures are certainly at inconvenient times and only the most ardent rugby watchers will make the effort for those games. The Italy Test (midnight) may suit those who stay up late on Saturday evenings.

However, the two most anticipated games of the tour — against France and Ireland — will be beamed into Australian lounge rooms at 7am on Sunday for the east coast fans.

We’re not sure the Wallabies will love the 9pm kick-off in Paris, though.
