Toulon hooker Guirado hailed Dupont and Ntamack for transferring their team form into the Test arena, but additionally known as on France’s collective to maintain their young play makers OnTrack.

“They’re learning quickly and they’re directing the match, but it’s obviously all of the players that have to assist them.”
