The player from Blagnac (31, 57 caps) was not selected for the World Cup last fall in New Zealand, where Les Bleues finished in third place. She will succeed as captain to the third line Gaëlle Hermet, who filled this role since the end of 2017.

The new tricolor coaching duo, Gaëlle Mignot and David Ortiz, had hinted shortly after his appointment in December, replacing Thomas Darracq, that he could appoint a new captain.

“We spoke with Gaëlle Hermet…”

“We spoke with Gaëlle Hermet (…) We explained to her our vision, how we saw the construction of the group. We really want the captain to be a person who emerges from everything that we are going to put in place, had explained Mignot. Today, like the others, Gaëlle is starting on the same starting line.”

Les Bleues will start their 2023 Tournament on Sunday March 26 in Italy before traveling to Ireland and then hosting Scotland and Wales. They will end on Saturday April 29 with a trip to the English vice-world champions, behind whom they took second place last year.
