Rugby World Cup 2023 / French XV – Charles Ollivon absent from Blues training

During the training of the XV of France this Tuesday in Aix-en-Provence, third row Charles Ollivon was absent from training. He had already shortened his session Monday afternoon…

Yesterday Monday, Midi-Olympique revealed that Charles Ollivon had cut his training session short without showing the slightest sign of injury. This Tuesday, the Toulonnais was completely absent from the training scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on the lawn of the Georges-Carcassonne stadium. According to our information, during Monday’s session he felt tension in his calf, which would explain the fact that he was spared today. However, he took part in “Clarity” training (walking) this Tuesday morning. In the entourage of the XV of France, we obviously want to be reassuring. In press conference, William Servat confirmed our information and mentioned a “slight contracture in the calf”: “As a precautionary measure, we wanted to spare him while he wanted to train. In ten days, there is an important match. We preferred to preserve him.” “Grand Charles” therefore attended the opposition on the substitutes’ bench in the company of Paul Boudehent, still under concussion protocol, and Julien Marchand, in the recovery phase and declared fit by the Blues staff to apply for the match against Italy on October 6 in Lyon (9:00 p.m.).

Under the eyes of Fabien Barthez

Furthermore, the lesson of this session, which took place under the eyes of the former goalkeeper of the French football team Fabien Barthez, is that the staff still brings competition into play. The composition of the “probables” against the “possibles” in the perspective of the last meeting of this group A had nothing to do with what was seen the day before. The blue chasubles – those usually dedicated to future holders – were given to Cyril Baill, Pierre Bourgarit, Dorian Aldegheri, Cameron Woki, Romain Taofifenua, Sekou Macalou, François Cros, Grégory Alldritt, Baptiste Couilloud, Matthieu Jalibert, Gabin Villière, Jonathan Danty , Arthur Vincent, Louis Bielle-Biarry and Thomas Ramos. Suffice it to say that it is more prudent – ​​not to say urgent – ​​not to draw any hasty conclusions as to the composition of the team that will be fielded. against Italy next October 6.
