SO Avignon

9 posts in this topic

Provided decent resistance to the new Cup holders Carcassonne Sunday at Domec. Holding out till late in the first half. But ASC building on their fine Cup exploit still had too much for the visitors going down 34-12. Coach Renaud Guigue admitted afterwards they are still short of a few quality players to tangle with the top four presently.

The former Dragons full back and assistant coach of the Tricolores wants some action. He’s asked the club bosses to secure a full back, half back and prop forward for next season – preferably from Down Under. Veteran Cagnac is retiring and young hopeful Goudemand now expected to leave.

Interestingly he’s demanding that the club move out of their present ground Stade Saint-Ruf and return to the Parc des Sports where the Grand Avignon club played a decade earlier. He’s not a fan of the synthetic pitch which he says has caused too many injuries this year.

The local newspaper report just said that he would be leaving. He's tried Toulon so hopefully staying in the game - Toulouse or Dragons would be good.

Hopefully not Catalans. He's a loose forward and we're stacked (Bird, Baitieri, Garcia). 

Toulouse would be a viable option but I think he's going to end up at another Elite 1 club.

TO could be an option what with Bentley getting on a bit but the priority has to be another stand-off ,fullback  preferably with someone who can  kick to reinforce. Maurel isn't a good enough kicker at this level neither is Kriouache .Kheirallah played s/o last game with Maurel going to f/b, no idea what the line-up will be tomorrow.
