The scrum-half of Stade Toulousain and XV de France was elected by his peers best player of the Top 14 and best international tricolor for the 2022-2023 season.


Stronger and stronger. Antoine Dupont won the two most prestigious awards at the 19th edition of the Nuit du Rugby, on Monday night at the Olympia: best player in the Top 14 and best French international. A double title that has the value of recognition from his peers since it is the 600 or so professional players who voted for him.

The scrum-half of Toulouse and the XV of France is ahead of the Rochelais Grégory Alldritt and the Bayonne Camille Lopez for the first award; Alldritt again and Damian Penaud for the second.

And as, decidedly, nothing resists the future star of the 7 of France, the captain of the Blues enters the history of this ceremony by becoming the first player to win twice this distinction of best player of the Top 14 (2021 and 2023).

Gailleton, revelation of the season

The centre of the Section Paloise, Émilien Gailleton, who honoured his first selections this summer, has been elected revelation of the 2022-2023 season. A year he completed as the top try-scorer in the Top 14 (14). However, the young man was unable to be present at the Olympia to receive his prize, blocked by the air traffic controllers' strike.

On the Pro D2 side, the champions and promoted, Oyonnax, also did a double by landing the best player – the international prop Thomas Laclayat, now at Racing 92 – and the best staff.

Finally, the best try of the 2022-2023 Top 14 season chosen by Internet users was awarded to Romain Ntamack for his decisive raid in the Top 14 final which gave the title to Stade Toulousain against Stade Rochelais. A little balm in the heart for the fly-half, who is currently in rehabilitation after the serious knee injury he suffered last August.
