The USAP squad has revealed the composition of the team that will face Stade Français in Jean-Bouin (this Saturday at 5:00 p.m.) in representation of the 6th round of the Top 14.
Regarding the match won against Castres (14-10), the Catalan coaching staff made ten changes to their starting XV. As lessons to learn: the possession of tristan labouteley on the third line. Regular number 4 of the USAP, he will play his first game as a winger. With his jumping physique (2.02m, 107kg) but also his qualities as a tackler (USAP’s best tackler since the start of the season), there is no doubt that the Lorrain will reach this position. Accompanied by Kélian Galletier and Genesis Mamea Lemalu, they will form a third complementary line.
At the heel, there will be the great premiere of Victor Montgaillard (1.81m, 98kg) with number 2 behind in the Top 14. The 20-year-old player is a raw talent of the Catalan formation. Started in France’s under-20 team last season, Salanquais is promised a bright future, and it’s time to release it. “Victor has quality. He is not a hidden person, he has a marked time that at some point he will have to come to us.explains CEO Patrick Arlettaz. It’s not a gift, it’s something he got for himself. It gives us satisfaction in training. He has his head on his shoulders. I don’t have too many doubts about him, I have high hopes that he will be fine on Saturday.”
Also note the left prop holding. Giorgi Tetrashviliten months after his Achilles tendon injury, as well as those of matthew rodor in the fight andAlivereti Duguivalu in the center, he who has not played there since last December.
Ultimately, the usapiste squad decided to form a big bench with, in particular, Seilala Lam, Xavier Chiocci, Shahn Eru, Lucas Velarte and Tristan Tedder, and also Akato Fakatika, the 21-year-old prop (1.80m, 118 kg) that will replace the right prop.
