Many were missing (Ramos, Dupont, Jelonch, Cros, Flament, Marchand, Danty…), but there were still many internationals on the pitch on Saturday, a month before the start of the Six Nations tournament (February 4 – March 18 ). And the evening produced not only good news, starting with the injuries of Pierre Bourgarit (left knee, released on the 21st) and Uini Atonio (right knee, 37th).
If the first, seen on an exercise bike in the second period, is far enough in the hierarchy of tricolor whores, the state of health of the seated right column will be closely scrutinized by the staff of the Blues.
He will have an MRI on Tuesday, while Bourgarit will be examined on Monday. No injuries among the Toulouse internationals but an evening spent suffering and which did not feature Romain Ntamack, Matthis Lebel, Pierre-Louis Barassi and Melvyn Jaminet, discreetly. The opener even received the first yellow card of his career in the Top 14, for a dangerous tackle on Paul Boudehent (31st).
Same price in the 55th for hooker Peato Mauvaka, who will not retain fond memories of his captaincy as the Toulouse conquest has suffered. Finally, La Rochelle captain Grégory Alldritt, who was shining until then, ended his game badly with a yellow (71st). It wasn’t the Blues’ night.
