Chef and rugby fan. Invited to the Nuit du rugby at the Olympia on Monday evening to distribute the awards at the end of the 2022-2023 season, Philippe Etchebest wanted to take advantage of the stage to get a message across.
I'm a little bit fed up with it because it's always only for the people of Toulouse," he told the assembly. I'm taking advantage of the fact that everyone is there, the managers, the big players, to tell you that this year, we're going to have to count on UBB, okay? Beware of UBB!»

Unfortunately for the owner of the Maison Nouvelle restaurant in Bordeaux, his favourite team was beaten on Sunday night in La Rochelle (25-21). And is only in 10th place in the championship after 7 rounds.
It was Stade Toulousain who swept a large part of the awards awarded on Monday night, including the best staff for Ugo Mola and his team, the best player in the Top 14 and best international player for Antoine Dupont, and the best try for Romain Ntamack against La Rochelle in the final.
