Bastien Chalureau’s fate will be decided in mid-January. Tried on appeal for acts of violence dating back to the night of January 30-31, 2020, aggravated by racist remarks, the MHR second-rower has seen the Toulouse Court of Appeal reserve judgment until January 16. Sentenced to six monthshat’s why I feel liberated, he told L’Equipe.

And the Montpellier player, who was included in the 33-man squad for the World Cup following Paul Willamse’s injury, which sparked off a storm of controversy, was not shy about the attack itself. I admit I was a terrible coward at the time. I had a total meltdown, he huffed. But since then, my life has changed. I’ve moved house, changed clubs thanks to my new agent Mathieu Cottin who believed in me, Xavier Garbajosa (the former MHR manager) and Mohed Al (He doesn’t finish his sentence.) I didn’t even know this singer, I just put a like under one of his videos without knowing that he was a far-right man. It’s all been taken out of context, he huffs this time, regretting the proportions the controversy has taken on: By digging this up, it has consequences for my family, because people believe this bullshit. As for me, Bastien Chalureau, I deserve it because I made a mistake, and I regret it. But for my family to be affected, that’s not possible.
