THE Fiji Rugby Union is excited at the prospect of playing France in a Test match later this year.

On Wednesday, the French Rugby Federation announced it would play Fiji on November 8 to kick-off their end of the year Tests. The French will then play Australia on November 15 before hosting Argentina a week later.

FRU acting CEO and board director Dr Berlin Kafoa said the Test matches against Tier 1 nations would inspire the Flying Fijians.

"The FRU thanks the Fédération Française de Rugby for the opportunity to play a Test match in France," he said.

"These Test matches against Tier 1 nations such as France will inspire the Flying Fijians to prepare well and perform to the very best of their ability."

Kafoa said with the brand of rugby the two nations are known for, fans can expect a cracker of a match come November.

"Both teams are known for their flair and running rugby, so the rugby public can expect an exciting game.

"We also thank the FFR for the many opportunities made available to young Fijian rugby players playing professional rugby in France."
