VIDEO. French Rugby Team. Between accuracy and efficiency, the best of Antoine Dupont against the All BlacksAfter the remarkable victory of the French rugby team over New Zealand, several names came up in the press. That of Melvyn Jaminet, real revelation of the year at the back. Obviously, that of Romain Ntamack, author of a revival of space and a solid match. But especially that of his friend at the hinge, Antoine Dupont. The scrum-half was recently nominated for the title of best player in the world. After the victory of the Blues against the Blacks, we do not see how this distinction could escape him. Known by Irish legend Brian O’Driscoll, the Toulousain competes with Australians Hooper and Kerevi as well as Englishman Itoje. RUGBY. Here are the nominees for the best player in the world … with Dupont on the list!In the opinion of many, there is no picture after the new capital performance of the number 9 against New Zealand where he notably eclipsed his opposite Aaron Smith. If he is aware of having “gained momentum“, it remains nonetheless humble at least to evoke via the Olympic Midi his performances with Toulouse and under the tricolor jersey:”It is also because I find myself in a favorable context. With Stade Toulouse, we achieved a double last season. With the French team, for two years, we have had good performances. I find myself in these strong collectives. So my evolution goes hand in hand with that of the teams in which I play.“At the moment, he doesn’t take the head to see if he is indeed the best player in the world. He just wants this dynamic to continue as long as possible. Coming out of a successful tour with three victories. in as many tests, the Blues are expected at the 6 Nations Tournament. In 2022, they will receive three times (Italy, Ireland, England), it is therefore a good year for France which hopes to win its first title under the Galthié era. And especially his first Tournament since 2010! XV of France – Charles Ollivon back for the 2022 6 Nations Tournament?A question arises before the competition: will Antoine Dupont be the captain of the France team again? “This made me ask myself a few more questions, but it came quite naturally afterwards. I felt more and more comfortable over the weeks.“The Toulousain has indeed perfectly assumed this role during the month of November. So much so that one wonders if he will not still wear the armband next winter. This question, Dupont does not ask.”We have to see how Charles evolves in his injury and his return to competition, so that he comes back in the best conditions.. “The return of Charles Ollivon, victim of a rupture of the cruciate ligament of the left knee last June, is not officially known. If by chance the 3rd row should resume competition in the coming weeks and be selected by Fabien Galthié, Antoine Dupont will have no problem with the fact that he gets his armband back. “It was him originally. We will see how it evolves.“Whether he retains this role or not, the scrum-half is more than ever one of the leaders of the France team.
