Arriving in the harbor as a World Cup joker, the totemic Welsh second row Alun Wyn Jones (38 years old), record holder for selections on the international scene (170, including 12 with the British and Irish Lions), will compete this Saturday , on the Clermont lawn, his sixth and final match with Rugby Club Toulonnais (the 4th as starter). On this occasion, Var manager Pierre Mignoni entrusted him with the captain's armband of the Rouge et Noir.
“Like his career, he brought to this group, because he is an immense professional. It was decisive to launch this season in the attitude brought to daily life, and in particular in the work ethic. This team needed it, confided the Toulon technician. I absolutely wanted him with us. We capitalized on his passage. We knew his age, but we also knew that he was a warrior, a fighter. What a brave player! Today, I say thank you to him.”
