Antoine Dupont is in Marcoussis this week, but he won’t be running into Fabien Galthié, Thomas Ramos or Charles Ollivon. The usual XV de France captain has been summoned to take part in a mini-stage with the French 7-a-side rugby team, which is preparing for the Paris Olympics.

The camp is scheduled to last four days, but Dupont will only be there for the first two, on Tuesday and Wednesday. Time for him to get to know his new team-mates and coaches. He will then return to Stade Toulousain, to prepare for the match against LOU in the Top 14 on Saturday evening.

Antoine Dupont’s new life begins on Tuesday, and he will have to get used to juggling the two disciplines, 7s and 15s. It has already been decided that he will not take part in the next 6 Nations Tournament with Galthié’s Les Bleus, and he is expected to take part in two Sevens tournaments on the American continent, in Vancouver (February 23-25) and Los Angles (February 26).eles (March 2-3), to get their bearings before the Olympics.
