Big surprise to Toulon. RCT manager Patrice Collazo has decided to sanction his rear-winger Gervais Cordin, by not calling him for the trip to Castres, this Saturday, October 2: ” I expect something else from him. I expect more on the rugby plan, and I expect more on extra rugby, ”explained the technician from the Var, this Thursday, September 30, at a press conference.
“Today, if a player is not in the squad, there are several criteria. The first is performance. The second, the one that does not have to be present, is the extra rugby attitude. (…) I’m waiting for a questioning on daily performance, in work, and in attitude, ”he added.
Brian Alainu’uese and Julien Hériteau uncertain
Moreover, the RC Toulon really there bad luck at the start of the season! Already deprived of 10 players, including its South African internationals Eben Etzebeth and Cheslin Kolbe, who relapsed this week in one leg, the Var club could have to do without its services of two new key players, the second line Samoan Brian Alainu’uese and the international center Julien Hériteau (27 years old; 1 selection).
Both are indeed present in the group of 28 Toulon players who are moving to Castres, this Saturday, October 2 (9:05 p.m.), but are still marked as ” uncertain“, On the RCT website. Then bluff of Patrice Collazo and his staff or real concern about their participation?

Premiere of Petero Tuwai against Castres?
If this is the second option, these are two new hard knocks for the people of Toulon who really don’t need that, they who already have a busy infirmary, with injuries to several executives: Facundo Isa (finger), Charles Ollivon (rupture of a cruciate ligament), Sergio Parisse (wrist), Christopher Tolofua (knee), Baptiste Cool (shoulder), Jiuta Wainiqolo (finger), Mathieu Smaïli (thigh) and Duncan Paia’aua (thigh). Moreover, the latter, who was released by the Wallabies before the end of the Rugby Championship 2021, on September 21, was injured just after returning to the club. To believe that there is a black cat housed at the RCT Campus.
In the meager ray of good news, let us note all the same the presence of the center Petero Tuwai, recruited on the advice of Sireli Bobo, in the Toulon group which makes the trip to Castres. The Fijian could make his debut in the Red and Black jersey on the stadium lawn Pierre-Fabre, this Saturday, October 2.
