Julien Marchand already remobilized after Leinster

Zapping World Fifteen Top 10: The best Top 14 scorers at mid-season

Stade Toulousain finished with the Champions Cup for this season, with the defeat in the semi-final against Leinster. Place now in the Top 14 and the fight for the final stages.

But precisely, such a defeat after such trying European finals, will it not play on the morale of the players and make them miss their end of the season? Julien Marchand categorically refuses to do so, the stakes in the championship being too big and too good to give up, as we can read on the Figaro website.

The season is far from over, we are not sure to be in the top six at the end. From Monday, we will have to start again with the banana. Because matches, we will lose others. It is the law of sport. The season is not over, we are not going to let go. We will remobilize 100% and learn from our mistakes because there have been some. I hope it will be positive for the end of the season

(…)

The only thing that matters is to always go as far as possible. To have fun every time we go to training or play in a match. We play each match to win it, we don’t calculate and we try to go all out. We are a good part to know each other, to play together for a while. It would be a mistake to lower your head today (Saturday). We will give everything to try to go as far as possible for the end of the season.

A champion mindset. Because Stade Toulousain will not retain its European title but still has its national title to defend. And for that, there is no longer too much calculation to do, except to win the matches.

to summarize

Stade Toulousain finished with the Champions Cup for this season, with the defeat in the semi-final against Leinster. We must therefore quickly bounce back for the Top 14, without letting ourselves be undermined by this defeat, as Julien Marchand indicates with great determination.
