The French coaching staff has selected 35 players for a training camp in preparation for the 6 Nations Tournament, which will be held this year in a new format.
The 6 Nations Committee has presented the new version of the 2021 edition for this particular tournament due to the health crisis. Gaëlle Hermet's teammates will be back in European competition from 3 to 25 April in an organisation similar to that of the Autumn Nations Cup for boys.

The format will include two pools of three teams. Each team will play a home and an away match before a grand final between the first of each pool and classification matches. The French will play in Pool B with Wales and Ireland.

- Ireland - France, Saturday 17 April at 15:15 (French time), Energia Park (Donnybrook), broadcast on France 2;

Following the 2021 Women's Six Nations Tournament, the French women's team will face England in Villeneuve d'Ascq for a preparatory match for the Women's World Cup to be held in New Zealand in 2022.
