Rugby: French federation and league agree on players' availability

REUTERS: The French rugby federation and the league have reached an agreement over the players' availabilities for this autumn's test matches, a source with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

According to the agreement, 31 players will be made available for the six matches France are scheduled to play, although one player will not be allowed to feature in more than three games, said the source who declined to be named.

Les Bleus take on Wales in a friendly test on Oct. 24 before hosting Ireland for a rescheduled Six Nations match on Oct. 31.

Fabien Galthie's team will then face Fiji, Scotland and Italy in the Autumn Nations Cup with the Finals weekend match being played on Dec. 5.
