XV of France: hit in the knee, Danty absent for three months and package for the Six Nations


The center of Stade Rochelais, injured against Perpignan, suffers from a rupture of the posterior cruciate ligament of the knee.

The three-quarter international center of Stade Rochelais, Jonathan Danty, was hit in the knee on Saturday during the big victory of the Maritimes over Perpignan (10-29).

According to information from


, he is suffering from a ruptured posterior cruciate ligament.

A heavy injury that should keep him away from the field for three months.

The La Rochelle center, who had been the victim a little earlier of a header from the Catalan captain Mathieu Acebes, then had to leave the lawn of Aimé-Giral after a tackle from George Tilsley, in the 68th minute.

Consequently, the former Stade Français Paris player (30 years old, 18 caps) should miss the next Six Nations Tournament, which begins on February 5 for the defending Blues with a trip to Italy.

Moefana holder?

Jonathan Danty had established himself as an essential element of the attack of the XV of France, associated in the center with Gaël Fickou (Racing 92), since the ephemeral Autumn Cup of Nations in November 2020 (defeat in the final against the England after extra time).

In the absence of Danty, logic would dictate that Yorama Moefana (Bordeaux-Bègles) be aligned in the center.
