Stade Toulousain: Antoine Dupont positive for Covid


INFO FIGARO - The captain of the champions of France and Europe is forfeited for the decisive meeting of the Champions Cup against Cardiff this Saturday. His presence at the gathering of the XV of France, this Sunday, also arises.

Stade Toulousain must face a cluster.

At the start of the week, around ten players and staff members tested positive.

This Thursday morning, the group was retesting.

And additional cases have come to light.

Among the positive players are several internationals, including scrum-half Antoine Dupont, according to our information.

The captain of Stade Toulousain is already forfeited for the decisive Champions Cup match against Cardiff this Saturday (2 p.m.).

There is also the problem of the gathering of the French team, the players summoned being expected on Sunday in Aubagne to begin preparation for the Six Nations Tournament.

With ten Toulouse players present in this group of 42, the question will certainly arise for coach Fabien Galthié to replace some of them, at least at the start of the internship, to avoid contamination of the tricolor group.

Not certain therefore that the captain of the XV of France is present among the Blues this Sunday.
