Two-time World Cup finalists France are set to play reigning world champions South Africa and 1987 champions New Zealand in test matches in November it was announced on Monday.

The French will play the Springboks on November 14, Samoa on November 21 and the All Blacks a week later, according to Sport24.

France have not met the South Africans since they beat them 36-26 in Cape Town in June 2006 while the French and the All Blacks have not played against each other since France sensationally beat them 20-18 in the 2007 World Cup quarter-final.

The New Zealanders – who have been drawn with the French in the same group for the 2011 World Cup – are already set to host two tests with the French in June.

France has only ever met Samoa once, beating them 39-22 in Apia in June 1999.

  • 1987 doesn’t really count. Same as winning an olympic medal when the soviet countries didn’t pitch.
