The graft between Melvyn Jaminet and Toulouse has not really taken off. Arriving with great fanfare in the summer of 2022, Melvyn Jaminet experienced the joy of a first Brennus shield but was above all weighed down by injuries. Return in five dates to the contrasting passage of Jaminet in Rouge et Noir.
September 4, 2022: first convincing match
The summer of 2022 was marked by the sensational signing of Melvyn Jaminet at Stade Toulouse. In search of a full-back worthy of competing with Thomas Ramos, the red and black club thinks it has smelled the right move by offering itself the gunner from Perpignan. Coming out of four full seasons in Catalonia, the international number 15 arrives with new pressure on the banks of the Garonne but is confident for his first. Facing Bordeaux-Bègles, opening the Top 14, Jaminet scores seven crucial points offering a last-minute success to the Rouge et Noir.
October 16, 2022: An ankle sprain stops Jaminet’s momentum
After a month of competition shared with Thomas Ramos, Melvyn Jaminet casse son bel élan, sur la pelouse de Brive. Despite the authoritarian success of his teammates, the back of the Blues injured his ankle and had to withdraw from the November tour with the XV of France. Diagnostics reveal a sprain for Toulouse number 15. The full-back will not play again until December 23 to wear the red and black jersey.
January 1, 2023: a symphony performed in Clermont
The passage of Melvyn Jaminet will not leave a big mark in the history of Stade Toulouse. But the red and black supporters will be able to remember for a long time the sparkling performance achieved by their back in Clermont. To celebrate the new year 2023, Jaminet quickly took matters into his own hands to offer great success to the Rouge et Noir, a first in twenty years at the Marcel-Michelin stadium, in the championship. With seventeen points on the clock, the Toulouse guard reigns supreme in this meeting, undoubtedly delivering his best performance with Toulouse.
April 22, 2023: a new sprained ankle weighs down Jaminet’s season
But three and a half months after this symphony in Clermont, Melvyn Jaminet must return to the infirmary. Another sprained ankle closes the 2022-2023 season for the Toulouse fullback. Facing the Stade Français, the former Catalan suffers from the same injury suffered on the Brive pitch. A terrible blow for Jaminet who will not be able to participate in the final stages with his teammates.
June 17, 2023: a first Brennus shield… in the stands
Like Pierre-Louis Barassi or Ange Capuozzo, Melvyn Jaminet chose the Toulouse project to win titles. And despite two major ankle sprains, and a lost back position in Blue, the red and black number 15 snagged a title on his record. From the stands, the red and black number 15 was able to widen his eyes when Romain Ntamack pierced the La Rochelle defense in the final minutes of the Top 14 final. First season in Toulouse, and first shield from Brennus for Jaminet. The last ? The native of Var will try to help the RCT to reconquer Saint-Denis, ten years after Toulon’s last victory.
