Only formalization was missing! This Tuesday Union Bordeaux-Bègles announced the arrival of Yannick Bru and Thibault Giroud for the next four seasons. The first city will begin its mission next July, and the second, currently the performance director of XV France, after the 2O23 World Cup. These two are tied to the Girondin club until 2027.
Laurent Marti, president of the Bordeaux-Bègles Union, spoke to our colleagues from L’Equipe on Tuesday about several topics related to his club. First of all, the coach evokes the dismissal of Christophe Urios, which took place in mid-November, and the reasons for it. Consequences too, with the promotion of Frédéric Charrier and Julien Laïrle until the end of the season, then the appointment of Yannick Bru from next season. Not to mention the significant signing of Damian Penaud and the not so uncertain future of Matthieu Jalibert…
Uini Atonio will return to the pitch in just three weeks. Injured in his right knee against Toulouse this Saturday, January 7, the international pillar is suffering from a slight sprain and could be available for the start of the 6 Nations Tournament on February 5. On the other hand, Pierre Bourgarit will be absent for two and a half months.
Damian Penaud will not play against Leicester, this Friday at 21:00, on the third day of the Champions Cup. The Clermont winger is suffering from a hamstring injury but should be fit for the start of the 6 Nations. Kévin Viallard injured his shoulder and will be out for at least six weeks.
For their trip to Sale on Saturday, counting for the third day of the Champions Cup, Stade Toulouse will find several of their vital forces.
