Vakatawa at 12 and Ntamack at 10 surprise me a bit.
I was pretty impressed with the bit I saw of Ollivon at 7.
Argentina and France have zero love for each other, this will be a good game to watch.

1 Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, 2 Agustín Creevy, 3 Juan Figallo, 4 Guido Petti, 5 Tomas Lavanini, 6 Pablo Matera (capt.), 7 Marcos Kremer, 8 Javier Ortega Desio, 9 Tomas Cubelli, 10 Nicolas Sanchez, 11 Ramiro Moyano, 12 Jeronimo De La Fuente, 13 Matias Orlando, 14 Matías Moroni, 15 Emiliano Boffelli
16 Julian Montoya, 17 Mayco Vivas, 18 Santiago Medrano, 19 Matias Alemanno, 20 Tomas Lezana, 21 Felipe Ezcurra, 22 Benjamin Urdapilleta, 23 Santiago Carreras

Of the first 4 games, this is the pick of the games for me. The ultimate expect the unexpected test match.

Anthems done and dusted. I have a feeling France is going to win this one.

France looking a little dangerous with ball in hand

Some big collisions early on

Same as Oz Fiji, at least inflicted by the Fijians

Sanchez with a shot at goal after France penalized for collapsing the scrum. Pulls it left

They are throwing it around like sevens. Frogs score again!

Fickou has a hand in everything so far. Class. Dupont and Ntamack have a good go too
