According to an old newspaper article, Johan van Altena was reported to have get 107 selections for Netherlands.
if I remember correctly, I read this article at the time when Philippe Sella had exceeded 100 selections, and the article affirmed that Sella was not the first to get 100 caps, but a Dutchman had done it before him, J van Altena.
Can someone confirm - or not - this data ?

Same article mentions that Dutch u20 player Maximilien Zerdoun is moving from the espoirs to the first team (if my French is not letting me down).

As it's said, my guess is that it's only for summer camp.

Thanks! Still good news I guess. Curious to see how the Corona virus, and the cancelation of the Rugby Europe u18 and u20 championship will affect the number of young Dutch players signing contracts in France this year. Without these tournament not really an opportunity to showcase themselves. Good to see that at least one made the step.

Another u18/u20 joins RC Narbonne espoirs according to their Facebook page. Center Daily Limmen had a strong performance in last year's u18 game against Romania:
