Matthieu Jalibert forfeits to face Bayonne

The duel between Matthieu Jalibert and Camille Lopez will not take place. The number 10 of Bordeaux is indeed forfeited and will not face Bayonne on Saturday (3 p.m.) on behalf of the fifteenth day of Top 14. He suffers from a muscle injury.

His injury was announced at a press conference on Friday morning. Matthieu has a muscle lesion in a lower limb which prevents him from playing today. We need additional examinations to validate his unavailability”, said Julien Laïrle, one of the UBB coaches who also clarified that this injury had nothing to do with the former one who had ruled out the international pitches in 2022. “There is nothing serious at the moment, we will know more on Monday”said the Girondin technician one month before the opening of the Six Nations Tournament.

Matthieu Jalibert was instrumental in the UBB victory against Montpellier (40-10) last Friday, delivering two decisive kick passes on tries from Santiago Cordero and Louis Bielle-Biarrey and scoring 17 points. Against Rowing, he will be replaced by Zack Holmes. Against Bayonne, the UBB will also do without Rémi Lamerat (psoas) and Tom Willis (ankle).
