“Stopping in the quarter was painful,” admitted Cameron Woki on the sidelines of the release, this Thursday, of his book “I will always believe”. “For me, it was complicated to move on. I worked a lot to make this World Cup. So stopping in the quarter was painful. I cut it, I went to Crete with my partner: it allowed me to recover mentally. But finding the club quickly allowed me to forget, to move on. As soon as I resumed with Racing 92, the disappointment was digested.
“There is frustration, especially for those who are leaving us, players and staff, and for the public, because we were not able to bring them the trophy. But the World Cup is behind me, assured Cameron Woki. I have a championship coming up with Racing, a Six Nations Tournament to prepare with the French team... There are quite a few things that allow me to forget.
The second row also returned in this interview given to AFP on the quarter-final lost 28 to 29 against South Africa. “I think the best won. I rewatched the match that same evening to find the answers. I didn’t necessarily have them… but I wanted to switch emotionally.”
