Garcia called into France squad

Young Catalan loose forward Benjamin Garcia has been drafted into the France squad by head coach Richard Agar.

Garcia, 20, has made two appearances since his move to the Dragons from Brisbane Broncos under-20’s in June, as he came off the interchange bench against Leeds and Warrington in the last two games of the regular season.

Agar has been forced into changing his squad after Mathias Pala and Clément Soubeyras both withdrew with injury, and the highly-rated garcia has been given the nod.

Full France squad:

Jean-Philippe Baile, William Barthau, Andrew Bentley, Kane Bentley, Thomas Bosc, Rémi Casty, Vincent Duport, Olivier Elima, Morgan Escare, Théo Fages, Jamal Fakir, Benjamin Garcia, Tony Gigot, Clint Greenshields, Younes Khattabi, Kévin Larroyer, Antoni Maria, Grégory Mounis, Eloi Pelissier, Sébastien Ragium, Mickael Simon, Cyril Stacul, Frédéric Vaccari.
