The Toulouse residents have started their week of preparation for the semi-final which will take place at Matmut Atlantique in Bordeaux on Friday at 8:15 p.m. What team composition will be chosen by the staff?

It is Thursday at 6 p.m. that the composition of the team which will face La Rochelle will be revealed. In the forward pack, there are few changes to expect from the team that started the European Cup final. We are moving towards a first line Baille, Mauvaka, Aldegheri; a second line Arnold, Flament and a third line Willis, Roumat, Cros.
Behind, it’s a little more complicated. Indeed, before this semi-final, the main question marks concern the three-quarter line next to the Dupont-Ntamack hinge. Which pair of centers will be aligned?
That of the European Cup final, namely Ahki-Costes? Or will Chocobares come to force the door by being aligned with the Tongan international?

Another question mark, the fate reserved for Thomas Ramos, replacing during the final phase of the European Cup for the benefit of the Scot Blair Kinghorn. Will the staff continue on this path or will they once again offer a starting position to Thomas Ramos, with his experience in the final stages in recent seasons? If so, will the Scot be pushed to the substitutes’ bench or to a wing; Lebel or Mallia, versatile gentleman, taking his place on the substitutes’ bench.

Likewise, if the staff remains faithful to a bench with five forwards and three three-quarters, who is the fifth forward who should accompany the first replacement line (Neti, Marchand, Merkler) and the versatile Brennan? Will the staff opt for a versatile second or third line forward like Faasalele or will they offer a bench to Castro-Ferreira, the man in form?
