Toulouse with Ramos in 10

In Toulouse, we note the absences of the international hinge Dupont-Ntamack, both left to rest. In their absence, Stade Toulousain’s game will be led by the tandem Baptiste Germain – Thomas Ramos, the latter slipping from the back at the opening.

The very fast winger Nelson Épée, a revelation of the world rugby sevens circuit with the France team, will start for the second time this season with his club.

Toulon aligns its best team … without Kolbe!

Toulon aligns its French internationals with, the left pillar Jean-Baptiste Gros, the 3rd line Charles Ollivon, who will be captain, and the winger Gabin Villière.

In the absence of Kolbe who will therefore not play against his former club, the right wing is held by the Fijian Jiuta Wainiqolo. The other Springbok world champion, Eben Etzebeth, is a good starter in the second line.

The starting XV of Toulon

Luc – Wainiqolo, Hériteau, Paia’aua, Villière – (o) Carbonel, (m) Serin – Parisse, Ollivon, du Preez – Rebbadj, Etzebeth – Gigashvili, Tolofua, Gros
