Former All Blacks coach Ian Foster has been picked to put together a World XV team to take on France on June 22nd.

Players named so far include Fiji Water Flying Fijians centre Semi Radradra, brothers Mako and Billy Vunipola, Frenchmen Maxime Machenaud and Camille López with Japan loosie Tevita Tatafu.

France who are ranked third worldwide and recent runners-up in the Six Nations – will field a strong team with several leading players from the Top 14.

Foster says to coach an invitational side made up of top-class international players from around the globe is something truly unique, and playing the French team in the Basque region they will certainly want to put on a show of attacking rugby, full of tries so the French, Spanish and Basque fans come away being fully entertained.

This will be the second rugby match to be held at San Mamés following the European Rugby Champions Cup Final in 2018, which is due to return in 2026.
