It's called a nice catch.
Jacky Lorenzetti and his team did a nice job and gave themselves a nice Christmas present before the hour.
According to information from the newspaper L'Équipe, Racing has achieved the feat of enlisting the right pillar of South Africa, world champion in 2019, Trevor Nyakane with a three-year contract.
Information that we are able to confirm.
At 32, the South African is a reference with his 42 caps on the clock.
With an impressive physique (122 kg, 1.78 m), Nyakane thus leaves his Bulls club, the South African franchise, where he has been playing since 2015.
A reinforcement of choice which will mark the spirits in Top 14. An arrival which rejoices the manager Racingmen, Laurent Travers: “It is in this position that we had decided to strengthen.
Trevor interested us because he has both scrum experience and very high level experience, with two World Cups played.
"Laurent Travers can also be delighted that Trevor Nyakane can" help his team to transmit its knowledge, its maturity, its confidence and help our young people to flourish.
He should join us in mid-December.
An observation that Jacky Lorenzetti, the boss of Racing also makes: “It is the profile of an experienced player that we were looking for to solidify our scrum and supervise our young people.
He did a hell of a job against the English at Twickenham.
This fall, the South African was one of his team's best on the European tour with victories over Wales (23-18) and Scotland (30-15) and a short loss in England (27-26).
In any case, Trevor Nyakane comes to reinforce a scrum in Ile-de-France which had appeared in difficulty since the start of the season.
