“Put me the best receiving players, not the painters! Go, go, go! Quick, quick, quick! Put me the guys who are awake, not the guys who sleep as receivers! A skillful guy, not a penguin!” exclaimed the Blues coach in particular, visibly unhappy with his “adversaries” of the day, in a video published by RMC. 48 hours after the lackluster success of the XV of France against Uruguay, the former scrum half from Colomiers must put his protégés back on the right path. As proof, the vast majority of executives should be back in the saddle against Namibia. This Sunday’s training notably revealed that Jonathan Danty participated in the session with the starters and that Louis Bielle-Biarrey could continue his second meeting in the World Cup.

Regarding these comments, which triggered a certain controversy around the coach, the FFR communication made it clear, this Sunday afternoon, that they had been made in a joking manner, without any malice at all. against young players from Stade français.
