At the moment, it’s all fire on the transfer market on the planet rugby. While La Rochelle has already attracted the Palois Antoine Hastoy and Quentin Lespiaucq in its nets, the Toulouse stadium would not be outdone. And the reigning French champion would show that he is capable of striking good shots, like the one made with Anthony Jelonch during the previous offseason.
Pierre-Louis Barassi would have refused Stade Français
At the end of the contract in June 2022, the center of Lyon, Pierre-Louis Barassi, had become a big target. The LOU wanted to have the extension, but the player would have felt that it was time for him to leave the Rhône for a new challenge.
RMC Sport announces that the international (23 years old; 3 caps) would have given his consent to Stade Toulousain. A 3-year contract is mentioned. Here also by the Stade Français, which would have offered a higher salary, Barassi would have been sensitive to the idea of being able to win titles quickly.
Jaminet to succeed Médard?
Second talented center, Barassi would be a very good pick for Stade Toulousain, which, according to some echoes, also eyeing the international center of Montpellier, Arthur Vincent. One way to prepare for the departure of Pita Ahki and the succession of Sofiane Guitoune?
In addition, concerning the future, the option leading to the rear of Perpignan, Melvyn Jaminet, doubly rewarded at the 17e Night of Rugby, would take even more thickness according to RMC Sport. Recently seen in the company of Toulouse leaders, “he would not be very far” from the Pink City, although he has a contract until 2023 with Usap. The arrival of Jaminet could compensate for a possible end of career of a rather vague Maxime Médard on the subject.
