Stade Toulousain qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions Cup by winning Saturday at Munster (33-40). A match at the end of which Cheslin Kolbe distinguished himself by cleaning the field of the bottles left on the lawn.
You can be one of the best players in the world and show great humility. Cheslin Kolbe demonstrated this on Saturday at Thomond Park. A stadium in which Stade Toulousain had just won in the round of 16 of the Champions Cup against Munster (33-40). A small feat which therefore did not make the South African winger lose practicality. At the end of this fine Haut-Garonnaise performance, the cameras of the British channel BT Sport have captured this beautiful image. That of Cheslin Kolbe collecting the waste left by the players on the lawn.
A sparkling Lebel
Small trash bag in hand, the 2019 world champion picked up each bottle before returning to the locker room at the Irish stadium. Once again performing under the Toulouse jersey, Kolbe had however left the lights of the post-match to his wing friend, Matthis Lebel, author of a test and a superb framing-overflow on one of the essays by Antoine Dupont.
Toulouse will play in the quarter-finals of the Champions Cup, along with La Rochelle, winner in Gloucester (16-27), and Clermont who won at Wasps (25-27). This Sunday, two other French teams will try to imitate them with Racing against Edinburgh (1:30 p.m.) and Bordeaux against Bristol (4 p.m.).
