“Full of problems waiting for the French XV”

Bruce coaches have long returned to the pitfalls they must avoid in tournament courses, status changes, and the 2023 World Cup.

With a relaxed smile, Fabien Galthié returned to the historic 10th Grand Slam achieved by the French XV with a long press conference at the Gambuen Stadium this Wednesday. He was on this occasion with the former president of Stade Francais Paris and the current general managers Max Guazini and Thomas Lombard, respectively. After long elaborating on how to work hyperscientific and explaining how video analytics works, he wept when he saw the final episode of FFR’s web series Destins Mêlés. Did. During the tournament, he tracked the blues as much as possible. After that, he wiped out his news and the blues news.

Can I confirm the extension of my coaching contract until 2027?
Fabien Galthié: You can see that Bernard Laporte confirmed to me the day before the match that he would extend it for four years. confirm. He told me 15 minutes before announcing it to everyone. We talked about our project, it’s not just a contract extension. Thank you for taking this opportunity to offer this challenge to Bernard Laporte, who picked me up in Touron three years ago. This was mentioned after the All Blacks (November). I wasn’t in a hurry, I was dealing with the situation very well. I was very pleased and accomplished this mission. But it is a great honor for him to pay attention to announcing it. Share it. I thank him for his confidence and respect. He is a wonderful president. I think he is in the position of a king.

Will other members of your staff be with you until 2027?
As soon as I resign, that is, in the next few days, this will be the subject of individual debate. What are everyone’s desires and needs? The staff is better than when I took office. He is as experienced as a team. As the match progresses, we will get better. The peak is expected soon. The collective experience of the players is important. The fact that on February 2, 2020 created a team of eight choices with an average age of 24 to attack the tournament was a deliberate choice of ability and potential. I was asked about the lack of experience of the players. Our vision was to build a collective experience. The team is now 25 years old and has over 20 selections, not the same as when it started. And we are still improving.

There is no reason to question the captain of Antoine. However, there is a story that has existed for two years. Tell you about it when we discuss it among ourselves.

Are you worried that the players may have relaxation?
However, anything is possible. You can also catch the booler. Many problems are waiting for us. We have a plan because it’s a sport and we really plan everything, but as soon as the match begins, we reach the unexpected. Competition at this level is unexpected. So be prepared for the unexpected. The change of status started when I defeated England. There were many questions and doubts about where we were heading. Only victory proves our correctness. Very early on, we worked on our status.

Can Antoine Dupont continue to be the captain of the French XV when Charles Ollivon returns?
Of course it’s a subject, but do we have to talk about it now? Do I need to put this back in the table? Antoine hosted a great tournament. He is a great captain. He is accompanied by his deputy captains Julien Marchand, Gregory Alldritt, Anthony Geronch and Gael Fickou. And then there is Charles, who reopened in Turon against Montpellier. We will follow him, we hope he will come back to shape very soon to sign up for this group. we will see. There is no reason to question the captain of Antoine. However, there is a story that has existed for two years. Tell you about it when we discuss it among ourselves. We want to be transparent and share, but here’s something that influences and respects men. We will get back to you within a few months.

The changing room is open. All French players will be able to enter our locker room at some point. We do not forbid anything.

In this tournament, I made two bets by returning Melvyn Jaminet and raising Cameron Woki to the second line. Can you expect new surprises in the future?
The changing room is open. All French players will be able to enter our locker room at some point. We do not forbid anything. Our sport may be injured, but we have to move forward.

Thanks to the club for making International available for a long time. How did you talk to the presidents of Toulouse and Bordeaux Bagels, the largest international suppliers?
They were every day. They always first knew who we kept, who we chose and who we released. This is a paradoxical injunction. Great for players, but difficult for clubs. I was trying to finish my training on Wednesday at 3pm and provide team composition at 5pm. This allows released players to join the club on the last train or plane.

Is it a hassle to draw a portrait as a brain trainer?
Say what you want, I don’t care … Max (Guazzini, in the room) wants me to change his glasses, I’ll have to go to the hairdresser … Say what you want, it’s me I’ve been away from all this for a long time. You can go there with cartoons. I have a mission.
