Uruguay vs France Preview

Uruguay ran France close less than a year ago and can do it again with a young French side on offer. The handicap market is certainly in play here.

I am backing the hosts to get within 15 points of France.

  • Uruguay lost their last game against France by 15 points.
  • France beat Argentina in their last match.
  • France finished 2nd in the 2024 Six Nations.

Head to Head

These two met at the 2023 Rugby World Cup, a match which France won 27-12 after a superb Uruguayan performance.

Uruguay Form

Uruguay have not played any rugby since the completion of the 2023 Rugby World Cup. They were very impressive in the tournament after being paired with France and New Zealand.

Against France, Uruguay fought superbly, losing 27-12 in the end. They were again very good against Italy, losing the game 38-17 after leading for much of the game.

The South Americans then beat Namibia 36-26 but were hammered 73-0 against the All Blacks after running out of steam.

Uruguay Injuries & Team News

Uruguay still have many of their players from the 2023 Rugby World Cup, but also some youth and new blood.

France Form

France were disappointing in the Six Nations this year, although they still managed to hold onto second place. That after being knocked out at the quarter-final stage of their home World Cup in 2023.

Last week, with a young squad, France beat a full-strength Argentine side 28-13. It was very impressive from the French who will look to continue building with their young players.

France Injuries & Team News

France, despite an impressive win at the weekend, are in a bit of disarray. One player has been sent home because a video emerged of him making racist comments, while two others have been detained due to a possible assault on an Argentine woman.


I am backing Uruguay to get within 15 points of France.
