Coach Jacques Brunel has put his faith in the 19-year-old Ntamack, whose father, Emile, won 46 caps for Les Bleus, to take on Warren Gatland’s side after some eye-catching displays for Toulouse and France’s Under-20s.Ntamack — the youngest player on any of this year’s Six Nations squads — will be paired with Wesley Fofana, while South Africa-born lock Paul Willemse also will make his debut in Paris.
