Champions Cup: after his concussion, Le Garrec forfeits the Toulouse-Racing 92 clash

The uncertainty was very great, it is now confirmed. Questioned this Tuesday by Le Figaro, Laurent Travers, the president of Racing 92, confirmed to us that Nolann Le Garrec, who came out with concussion last Saturday against Clermont, will not participate in the round of 16 of the Champions Cup, which takes place on Sunday at Ernest- Walloon against Stade Toulousain.

“There is a regulation: when someone has had a concussion and it is revealed by the match doctor, automatically there are 10 days (of stoppage) which cannot be reduced. This is for the protection of the players. The player automatically has a weekend where he cannot play,” the Altosequan leader confirmed to us.

Last Saturday, at Paris La Défense Arena, Nolann Le Garrec, who had shone during the last Six Nations Tournament, was hit in the head at the very start of the match, tackled by Clermont winger Yérim Fall after making a superb pass after contact which had led to the trial of Henry Arundell.

After the match, his manager, Englishman Stuart Lancaster, said: “Nolann will follow the protocol in place. We are eight days away from the match against Toulouse and we will see how it goes. Unfortunately for the Ciel et Blanc, the protocol is strict when a concussion is proven. There will therefore be no Antoine Dupont-Nolann Le Garrec duel on Sunday in Toulouse.

During the same match won against ASM, Racing fly-half, Antoine Gibert, was also injured in the ankle. He had to leave the field supported by two trainers. Concerning the opener selected for the last Tournament, the decision has not yet been made. “Antoine, we are still waiting to make a decision,” explains Laurent Travers.
