'French Selection' is a bit meh.
Although true to the old traditions of the French tours I remember from 86 and 90 etc.
Which itineraries went something like:
The French tours, outside the tests, were always the least interesting to follow. Because who gives a ruck about a team called 'French Selection'.
From 1990, I recall, that once you got there you found out that the game v e.g.'French Selection' in Toulon became Cote d'Azur selection which was a selection of players from that region's clubs plus the odd random from a totally different part of France that the French national selectors wanted to have a look at.
The same would happen once you got to the game in e.g. Bayonne and the 'French Selection' became Cote Basque Selection etc etc etc
Not the romance of a tour game v a Munster, or Transvaal, Western Province or NSW, or Cardiff, Llanelli etc
I'm surprised it's not v French Barbarians, but I supppose the FFR don't own that club, and all the commercial complications that entails.
