According to South Africa’s Rugby World Cup winning wing Cheslin Kolbe, France are “favourites” for the tournament that will take place the following year.
After defeating New Zealand with a resounding victory in November, Les Bleus went on to win their first Six Nations championship since 2010 in March.
The hosts of the event are placed in Pool A together with the All Blacks, who have won the competition three times, Italy, Uruguay, and Japan.
According to comments made by Kolbe to Canal+, “I believe the French lads are undoubtedly the favorites coming into the World Cup.”
He continued his remarks at the annual awards event for French rugby by saying, “Particularly with the World Cup being in France, it will be wonderful for them.”
The current world champions, Kolbe’s Springboks, are playing in Pool B, which also includes Ireland, Scotland, Tonga, and Romania.
Due to a fracture in his jaw, the Toulon three-quarter was forced to sit out his country’s most recent Rugby Championship.
Three years after winning the Webb Ellis trophy in Japan, he is scheduled to make his comeback in time for the November Tests that the Boks will be playing against Ireland, France, Italy, and England.
Eleven months remain till the start of the World Cup. Since we were in Japan, a lot of time has passed,” Kolbe added.
“It would be wonderful for the Springboks to preserve the trophy but France did incredibly well at the Six Nations,” he continued. “It would be excellent for the Springboks to keep the trophy.”
