This is a moment awaited by the players but also by the clubs. Like every Wednesday evening of the Blues rally, Fabien Galthié’s staff announced the identity of the fourteen elements released and made available to their employer. Among them are the third line François Cros, in search of playing time after returning to the field last week against Munster in the Champions Cup, but also his partner in Toulouse, winger Matthis Lebel. The latter evolved with the reserve team during the first two training sessions of the week in Capbreton.
Sunday, in the closing match of the 16th day of Top 14the two of them, and even all three with Pierre-Louis Barassi, could cross paths with Montpellier residents Yacouba Camara and Alexandre Bécognée, also released.
The Bordelais Thomas Jolmes and Louis Bielle-Biarrey as well as the Rochelais Paul Boudehent and Antoine Hastoy, the Lyonnais Dylan Cretin, the Toulonnais Dany Priso and the Palois Emilien Gailleton will also leave the Landes. As for Léo Coly, number 9 of the MHR, he will not return to Capbreton next week. Victim of a tear to a thigh, he will be unavailable between four and six weeks according to our information.
