Flament back with Toulouse against Racing 92

The second or third international line of Toulouse Thibaud Flament trained normally this week and should return to competition on Saturday against Racing 92 during the 4th day of the Top 14, his club said on Thursday.

Hit in an ankle during the summer, the 25-year-old missed the whole start of the season, like his teammate Yannick Youyoutte, also fit to play this weekend after suffering a bicep injury.

Their comebacks are timely since Stade Toulousain will suffer on the second line from the absence of the Australian Richie Arnold, suspended after receiving a red card last Saturday during the defeat in Pau (26-16).

The five-time European champion will also be able to count on American pillar David Ainu'u, centers Lucas Tauzin and Pierre Fouyssac, new dad, and winger Nelson Epée, back from the Sevens Rugby World Cup. .

The Toulouse infirmary remains full, however, with in particular the opening half Romain Ntamack, the pillar Cyril Baille, the third line François Cros and the centers Pita Ahki, Pierre-Louis Barassi and Santiago Chocobares.

The versatile rear Juan Cruz Mallia is retained with Argentina to compete in the Rugby Championship.
