The news fell on Tuesday: rupture of the Achilles tendon for Regan Grace. The Welsh thirteenth player should join Racing 92 in October. But the Ile-de-France team will have to wait until 2023 to align it. He should notably compensate for the departure to Stade Rochelais of Tricolore Teddy Thomas. A situation that could push the Top 14 club to call on another player. As a reminder, the Montois Wame Naituvi will not land until the summer of 2023 after a final season at Mont-de-Marsan. As for South African Warrick Gelant, he is part of the Springbok squad for the Rugby Championship. Will Racing 92 push for the latter to arrive sooner than expected?Top 14. Racing 92. World champion, eternal hope, Warrick Gelant, the future attraction of Racing 92?On the Clermont side, we will also have the chance to field rookies from the start of the season. Indeed, Rugbyrama informs us that the ASM has negotiated with the Australian federation for Irae Simone to join France after the first two matches of the Rugby Championship. The Wallabies are scheduled to face the Pumas twice on August 6 and 13. The center could therefore be aligned from the first Top 14 games at the Bautista Delguy stage. The former USAP and UBB player would be released after the third game against New Zealand on August 27. His compatriot Tomas Lavanini should take part in the whole competition. It will therefore not be available until the fall after the tests. As for the Fijian Apisai Naqalevu, a new operation will keep him away from the pitch at least until the end of the year.TOP 14. Lavanini, Belleau, Simone… Which starting XV for ASM in 2022/2023?
