History

Under-18 became a recognised age-grade in European rugby in 2004.[1]

European Championship

The French Under-18 team has been competing in the European Under-18 Rugby Union Championship since 2004, when it was first held. In seven editions since, the team has won the final five times and played as the losing side in the other two, going out to England on both occasions.[2]

The French side beat Ireland 27-3 in the 2010 edition of the tournament, marking its fifth title and its fourth in a row.[2] France had a disappointing 2011 tournament, missing the final for the first time, failing to win a game and finishig only fourth.
