France’s Catalan contingent up to 16

Catalan pair Damien Cardace and Benjamin Garcia have been called up to the France World Cup squad due to injuries.

Full squad: Jean-Philippe Baile, William Barthau, Thomas Bosc, Damien Cardace, Rémi Casty, Vincent Duport, Olivier Elima, Morgan Escare, Jamal Fakir, Benjamin Garcia, Kévin Larroyer, Antoni Maria, Grégory Mounis, Eloi Pélissier, Mickael Simon, Frédéric Vaccari (all Catalans Dragons), Andrew Bentley, Kane Bentley (Toulouse), Younès Khattabi (Carcassonne), Cyril Stacul (Lézignan), Sébastien Raguin (Saint-Estève-XIII Catalan), Tony Gigot (Avignon), Clint Greenshields (North Queensland Cowboys), Théo Fagès (Salford City Reds).
