During the pre-match press conference, Bernard Goutta gave an update on the Agen infirmary.
On the eve of SU Agen’s trip to Carcassonne tomorrow evening (9 p.m.), the pre-match press conference was held. The wish expressed by Arnaud Duputs, Clément Garrigues and Bernard Goutta is simple: restart the machine after two consecutive defeats. The task does not look easy, however, and the SUA should make several changes compared to the team which lost against Oyonnax last Thursday.
Three players back in the squad
As we announced to you yesterday, Dorian Bellot is the victim of a metacarpal fracture. An absence of “three to four weeks” was mentioned by Bernard Goutta. The Catalan manager also deplores the second line package William Demotte, concussed after “a very limited tackle” against Oyonnax. Absent for a long time, the right pillars Walter Desmaison and Théo Sauzaret will not make the trip to Aude, like Thomas Vincent, who could return by the end of the year.
England’s Zak Farrance has resumed training sessions but is a little tight to apply tomorrow night, as is captain Vincent Farré. Martin Devergie will also not be present tomorrow evening due to a small alert. For his part, the powerful Malik Hamadache will hold his place, despite “a stage 1 acromio” in the shoulder. SU Agen can count on the return to the group of hooker Mike Sosene-Feagai, second line Corentin Vernet, and scrum half Sonatane Takulua to face the Audois.
