As the current French stars reach their forties (such as Damien Eloi, Patrick Chila, Jean-Philippe Gatien and Christophe Legout), France will have to look for new youth to replace their role. So how is the French youth doing on the international scene? As of late 2009, the girls' team is ranked 11th, while the boys' team is ranked 6th.
