"In sports, nothing is set in stone", Macron tells France's rugby team

SHOWS: MARCOUSSIS, FRANCE (SEPTEMBER 5, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (French) FRENCH PRESIDENT, EMMANUEL MACRON, SAYING: "I had two very simple messages to give to you.

The first, it's that of confidence.

Confidence in yourselves, and confidence in the team.

You aren't the favourites in this competition.

We know it well.

And you've had a rough ride recently, we know that too, because of all the comments in the media, I know very well how hurtful and difficult and how nasty it is.

But I know one thing.

It's that in sport, nothing is set in stone.

It's not true just in sport, but in sport it's true too." STORY: French president Emmanuel Macron paid a visit to Les Bleus before they embark on their Rugby World Cup campaign, looking to boost the team's confidence ahead of the tournament.

France geared up for the event with victories against low-ranked Italy and Scotland, against whom they also lost in one of three warm-up matches.

France were drawn in Pool C with Tonga, the United States, England and Argentina -- their first opponents on Sept.

21.

They fly to Japan on Saturday (September 7).
