Rugby: Antoine Dupont in the same struggle as Mbappé!

Published on May 13, 2024 at 10:35 a.m.

Stade Toulousain took the lead in the Top 14 this Sunday, with its big victory at home against Stade Français (49-18). And the new leader had the luxury of doing it without Antoine Dupont, his captain and biggest star, who spent the entire match on the substitutes’ bench… which is reminiscent of the situation experienced by Kylian Mbappé at PSG!

It was the much-anticipated shock of this 23rd day of Top 14. Rivals since the early 2000s, the Toulouse Stadium and the French Stadium met this Sunday and they are the men ofUgo Mola which have largely established themselves. An important victory, since it allows Toulouse to take the lead in the French Championship just three days before the start of the play-offs.

No Dupont against Stade Français

The Toulouse demonstration was total, but what especially impressed observers was that it was done without Anthony Dupontwho did not even play a single minute during this meeting against the French Stadium. He is not the only one, since Romain Ntamack He was completely absent, with Stade Toulousain granting him a week of rest. A choice not necessarily surprising given the trend ofUgo Mola to practice a large turnover, but which reminded some of what Kylian Mbappé may have experienced at PSG this season, with Luis Enrique.

“Antoine stayed in the doghouse”

On the sidelines of the meeting, Clement Poitrenaud explained himself about this strong choice. “ Antoine remained in the doghouse. Our hinge who played in the Champions Cup semi-final has recovered, which is positive. What is especially positive is that the players who were on the pitch did the job » explained the backs coach of the Toulouse Stadiumaccording to RMC Sport. “ It once again proves the strength of the group and that’s what we’ve been looking for for many months now. We will continue what we have been doing since the start of the season, rotating our squad, but always with the requirement of maintaining a high level of performance. “.
