Little by little, the French internationals are returning to the pitch. During the 4th day of Top 14 last weekend, Peato Mauvaka, Charles Ollivon and Gabin Villière returned to the field with the desire to quickly switch to something else... And for this new day of the championship, other Blues could make their return. For Racing 92, center three-quarter Gaël Fickou and second row Cameron Woki returned to training this Tuesday.
The Bordeaux-Bègles Union will be able to count on Louis Bielle-Biarrey. The young helmeted winger returned to training this Tuesday morning and with a smile. In Toulouse this time, French internationals Dorian Aldegheri and Melvyn Jaminet resumed training on Tuesday, as noted by an AFP journalist on site. And therefore apply for the trip to Pau on Sunday at the end of the 5th day of the Top 14.
Right pillar Aldegheri came on as a substitute during the defeat of the French XV against South Africa (29-28) in the quarter-finals of the World Cup. He took part in a total of five matches during the competition, including four as a substitute. Full-back Jaminet has not played since the Blues' last group match at the World Cup, won against Italy (60-7) on October 6.
Aldegheri and Jaminet joined hooker Peato Mauvaka, who already returned to competition last weekend during the match won at home against Bordeaux-Bègles (29-22). The returns of the other French internationals (Antoine Dupont, Cyril Baille, François Cros, Anthony Jelonch, Thibaud Flament, Thomas Ramos, Julien Marchand) will take place gradually, according to individualized recovery programs. The powerful second row Emmanuel Meafou, injured in a thigh, and the winger Matthis Lebel, injured in an ankle against UBB, should also miss the trip to Pau, current leader of the championship.
