Last September, we revealed the agreement between Stade Français and its opener Joris Segonds (24) to extend the player’s contract for two more seasons, until 2024. The signing is effective. Will the future of his competitor Nicolas Sanchez be far from the capital? Hired until 2022, the Argentina international (83 caps) could be released by the Parisian leaders. Especially since, according to information from Rugby Transfers, the Puma would be watched by Montpellier, eager to strengthen at the position of number 10. While the Rochelais Ihaia West will extend, the MHR also keeps a close eye on Antoine Hastoy in case relegation of Pau, as indicated by us on Friday.

Australian Jesse Mogg, who arrived in Pau two years ago, is unlikely to extend his stay in Béarn. Handicapped by a chronic leg injury, he would not fit into the plans of future manager Sébastien Piqueronies. The two sides began discussing a possible contract extension at the start of the calendar year, but Section leaders have not followed through in recent weeks. At 31, Mogg could return to his country, and play in Super Rugby again. The Brumbies franchise is waiting for him in any case with open arms.

On Friday, the RCT announced its long-awaited reinforcement in the second line: to face several injuries in this sector including Eben Etzebeth or Brian Alainu’uese, the club called on a medical joker, in the person of Levi Douglas (25 years). The Englishman, who played at Bath for a long time, was at Wasps, with whom he has appeared in 11 games this season. In addition, Toulon has also announced the departure of its young versatile three-quarter, Frederick Du Plessis (20). The South African has decided to return home for personal reasons. After playing in the Supersevens last year, he has appeared in four Top 14 games this season.

After experiences in Bayonne, Grenoble and at the Stade Français, the South African Dewald Senekal has been appointed forward coach of the Irish province of Connacht. The 40-year-old technician will take up his duties during the next offseason. Dewald Senekal spoke about his arrival at Connacht: “I played against Connacht at the Sportsground during my visit to Bayonne and I was immediately struck by their passionate and loyal supporters, and since then by the ambition and will to succeed of the club. ”
