Chartres recruits a South African 3rd line

And three! To believe that Renaud Gourdon, the new coach of C’Chartres Rugby, is a fan of South African rugby. In any case, he appreciates the mentality, on and off the pitch, of the Springboks.

In regular contact for several seasons with a 27-year-old third row, Chris Massyn, native of Krugersdorp, who played in the Curie Cup, with the Free State Cheetahs (Bloemfontein), Renaud Gourdon responded favorably to his service proposal.

“Massyn wanted to discover rugby in France. It was barred for him in Top 14 and ProD2, he will be with us for two seasons, says the coach, not unhappy with his blow. It is a bulldozer (1.86 m for 122 kg), a machine that advances and defends very hard. He will be one of our leaders. He will show us the way, especially our young people. “

Chris Massyn will be reunited with his compatriots, scrum-half Kevin Luiters and full-back Warren Potgieter. Perhaps while waiting for others. “We are entitled to five foreigners,” says Renaud Gourdon.
