Demba Bamba

17th Mar 1998 1.85m/125kg Tighthead Prop

Demba Bamba is another modern-day prop with the potential to become one of the best props France has ever produced.

The powerful tighthead that gets around the park made his debut for Brive in the Top14 in 2017 at the age of 19.

Strong showings during the 2017/18 Top14 and Challenge Cup season saw him being named in the France u20 squad for the 2018 Six Nations.

He impressed for the side as they went on to win the competition and was included in the squad for the U20 World Championship.

Bamba made waves during the competition and was one the top performers in the competition and was a nominee for the Player of the Competition.

Following the conclusion of the competition, he signed a five-year deal with Lyon but returned to Brive for the 2018/19 season.

In October 2018, Bamba was named in the France senior squad for the November Internationals.

He made his test debut off the bench against Fiji before he was named in the France Six Nations squad for 2019 and earned his first start against England in Round two of the competition.
