Will we also see some shock exclusions?

The French Squad for the world cup in September has been announced. and although we all know experience wins you World cups
Their selectors have left out experienced Utility Forward Sebastien Chabal, and Centres Yannick Jauzion and Mathieu Bastareaud from their preliminary squad.
Chabal who has 60+ caps for the national team is a brillaint loose forward, and can also cover lock, there is no doubt the French will miss him, but he is quite a fan favourite, and spectators, and French supporters will probabaly be more disappointed, as they won’t get to see the Cave man in action.
al though this is a preliminary squad, it is unlikely that players will be added to the squad, unless there are some injuries. if anything, a few players will probably be dropped from the squad closer to the WC.
I enjoy seeing who the other countries choose, I’m not really up to date with Northern hemisphere rugby and the form of these players, but it gives one an indication of who we’ll be facing, should we come up against these teams.
The important question though is….will we see some shock exclusions when our squad is announced…?
