Meafou, Marchand, Ahki… Stade Toulousain faces many major injuries

This Wednesday, L’Equipe reports that Emmanuel Meafou may have already finished his season. Marchand and Ahki, who came out injured against Leinster, could return, at best, for the semi-finals.

A victory against Leinster, a title in the Champions Cup, a fierce fight but also a cascade of injuries. This Wednesday, medical examinations delivered the verdict concerning several Stade Toulousain players. The Team reports in particular that the colossus Emmanuel Meafou (2 selections) may have already finished his season. The second row was concussed but above all suffered a significant tear in his hamstring.

Other hard blows include injuries to center three-quarter Pita Ahki and hooker Julien Marchand. The first mentioned suffers from an “adductor injury” while the second suffered a sprained ankle. They could return, at best, for the semi-finals of the championship (next June 21 and 22). The versatile Brennan was also concussed and will be absent to face La Rochelle on Sunday evening (9:05 p.m.) for the penultimate day of the championship.

No Dupont against La Rochelle

As a reminder, Toulouse will not be able to count on its playing master Antoine Dupont, who will compete in the Madrid Tournament with the French 7s team, the last stage on the road to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. On the other hand, Alban Placines, seriously injured last February, returned to training. First and already qualified for the final stages, Ugo Mola’s men host La Rochelle before traveling to Lyon for the final day.
