Stade Toulousain continues to fill its back line for next season. After the signings of Pierre-Louis Barassi (Lyon), Ange Capuozzo (Grenoble) or Melvyn Jaminet (Perpignan), the Haut-Garonne club offered La Rochelle winger Arthur Retière. The arrival of the 24-year-old player was made official this Thursday, in a press release published by the club.
« It’s an honor to sign at Stade Toulousain! We had been in contact for some time and I felt it was the right time for me to join the club “said the main interested party in the press release. ” Arthur is a great player both in terms of his rugby qualities and his mentality: he never gives up, fights for the team “, added Toulouse President Didier Lacroix.
The new Toulouse recruit will join his brother Edgar (21), who plays in the hopeful team of the Rouge et Noir, in the Pink City. He had been playing since 2016 with the Maritimes, and even has a selection with the XV of France (against Ireland during the 2020 Six Nations Tournament).
