Stade Toulousain – MHR: on the lawn of Toulouse, Thomas Darmon can show himself, again
Montpellier moves to Haute-Garonne, this Sunday January 29 (9:05 p.m.) on behalf of the 16th day of Top 14.
In the minds of the staff now, his name is one of the first on the next match sheet. “Go “MVP”it is your turn”likes to call him his teammate and friend Léo Coly, when calling Thomas Darmon to present himself to the press. “Arf, it’s not my fault, he’s voted the best player in every game”laughs the former Montois.
A nickname that is anything but trivial. With each of its releases, “Darmich” shows a little more the extent of its qualities. Second best scorer Champions Cup (4 tries), twice named in the XV type of this same competition… Darmon managed to make people forget Geoffrey Doumayrou and Arthur Vincent, whose season is over or compromised.
