France captain Antoine Dupont has surgery on fractured cheekbone

France captain Antoine Dupont has had surgery on a fractured cheekbone sustained in the 96-0 win over Namibia.

The French Rugby Federation (FFR) stated that the scrum-half will rejoin the national squad "within a few days," but they haven't specified the exact duration of his absence.

Antoine Dupont had to leave the game against Namibia due to an injury caused by a head-on-head tackle. He underwent surgery in Toulouse and is expected to join the French team again soon after a gradual recovery.

The quarter-finals, semi-finals, and final of the tournament have specific dates in October. Let's hope for a successful recovery for Dupont and good luck to the French team!

Labit emphasized that Dupont will remain with the team and is determined to continue competing in the tournament. The team will follow the usual protocol for short-term injuries and hope for positive news from the surgeon.

They will respect Dupont's decision based on the specialist's verdict. It's important to focus on the present and not get too far ahead. Let's cheer for Dupont and the team's success!
