Montpellier: Arthur Vincent could be absent all season

During Montpellier’s victory at Brive (26-31) last Saturday, Arthur Vincent, on a resumption of support, remained on the ground. The Montpellier center was hit in the left knee, the same as the one operated on at the start of last season for a ruptured cruciate ligament, and that he had kept him off the pitch for eight months. The first examinations were rather reassuring and the MHR communicated on an absence of approximately two months at the beginning of the week.

Delivered in time for the World Cup?

Unfortunately, further examinations revealed that his left knee had suffered a relapse. Arthur Vincent should again be away from the field for many months. The center of the Blues will be absent from the November tour, but also from the 2023 Tournament. The question is whether he will be reinstated for the 2023 World Cup. Last year, he returned for the end of the season and had won the Brennus with Montpellier.

It’s a new blow for Arthur Vincent, but also for the France team. After Virimi Vakatawa and Bernard Leroux, a new player will be missing.
