Yoann Huget is hit with the Achilles tendon and a premature end of career is to be feared for the one who had already announced wanting to hang up the crampons at the end of the season.

The worst is to be feared for Yoann Huget, and we will have to wait a little before being fixed on the future of the French international. Hit on the Achilles tendon on Saturday night during Stade Toulousain’s victory against Racing 92 (34-16), the winger could well be forced to pass on the operating table in the event of a total or partial rupture. Such news could be synonymous with the end of his career for the one who had already announced that he wanted to hang up his crampons at the end of the season.
Invited on RMC this Sunday evening, Ugo Mola, the general manager of the Reds and Blacks, gave news of his player. “Today’s news is the same as yesterday. We are awaiting the examination which will take place at 1 pm Monday through an MRI. The injury seems serious. The only positive thing is that Yoann is of strength. incredible character. Today he is still in the action and looks forward to tomorrow’s check. “
Mola: “The immediate thing is to know the extent of the damage and we will draw the consequences”
Ugo Mola refuses for the moment to mention the end of his player’s career. “The question will arise a little later to know how to manage the rest. The immediate thing is to know the extent of the damage and we will draw the consequences. He has nothing more to prove to us about his character. “He’s a different and remarkable boy. Even in difficulty, he shows a rather astonishing courage”, continued the technician from Toulouse on our antenna.
Aged 33, Yoann Huget has 63 caps with the XV of France. Saturday, the announcement of his injury and the fear of a brutal end of his career aroused great emotion in the world of rugby. His teammates, Romain Ntamack or Antoine Dupont for example, all said they were very touched. “In normal times, an injury is already very serious. But when, in addition, you are at the end of your career, it is an obsession”, for his part reacted Maxime Médard at the end of the meeting.
