RUGBY. French team. The very long list of Blues who will be out of contract in 2023

RUGBY. Top 14. Toulouse, a real option for Damian Penaud in the event of departure?The Clermontois Damian Penaud is not the only Habs whose contract will come to an end in 2023. Several players from the France team are in his case. They could well shake up the transfer market in the coming months. As for the ASM winger, Racing 92 would be particularly interested. But the Toulouse track is not exclusive. The Stadium also has several elements at the end of the contract, including the French international Selevasio Tolofua, and could possibly make room for him in its line of attack. At Racing precisely, two Blues and not the least will also be at the end of their contract next June: Donovan Taofifenua, called up to the Blues but still without selection, Boris Palu (2 selections in 2020) and especially Virimi Vakatawa. The center has fallen in the hierarchy and is no longer the one who was considered the best in his position. Should he leave to revive?RUGBY.  6 Nations.  Back in shape, will Vakatawa line up against Scotland?RUGBY. 6 Nations. Back in shape, will Vakatawa line up against Scotland?His former club teammate Brice Dulin did so by going to Stade Rochelais. And it worked since he found the tricolor jersey and shone. Before seeing the competition which Jaminet passes him in front of the Blues. In the Maritimes, his place does not seem threatened for the moment and he should probably continue. A choice that Pierre-Henri Azagoh could not make. From the tour to Australia in 2021, he is of interest to several elite teams. And shouldn’t be the only one. At 24, Demba Bamba has 25 caps and is one of the players on whom Fabien Galthié’s staff relies. If he is installed at LOU, he is not asked for it in the starting XV of the Blues. After four years in the Rhône, will he look elsewhere to continue learning? It could be a paid option.XV of France.  Thomas Jolmès, the improbable ascent of the giant of IsèreXV of France. Thomas Jolmès, the improbable ascent of the giant of IsèreOther Habs with fewer selections could soon shake up the transfer market. Like Tolofua, Thomas Jolmès has only two capes with the Blues. He will be with his teammate at UBB Cyril Cazeaux (4 selections), at the end of the contract in 2023. Jolmès was particularly prominent in Japan while Cyril Cazeaux was on the trip to the Wallabies last year. The first city comes out of a very good season. He worked and improved after several complicated seasons. The coming year will undoubtedly be decisive in the rest of his career. As for Cazeaux, he will start his 8th season with UBB. He had extended until 2020 then 2023. At 27, he is probably also at a turning point in his life as a rugby player.
