He will no longer wander his imposing carcass and his smile within the walls of Ernest-Wallon. Almost 29 years old (he will have them on August 7), Gillian Galan will discover his second professional club. The third line of Stade Toulousain has chosen to enter for a season with Lyon, according to Midi Olympique . LOU occupied second place in the Top 14 before the championship stopped, far ahead of Toulouse, seventh.

Very powerful (1.93 m, 130 kg) and technically skilled, the player trained at Montauban was coming to the end of the contract with the Rouge et Noir, where he had started his career on the Toulon side, in April 2011.

Potential not fully exploited

Between injuries and competition, the triple champion of France (2011, 2012, 2019) has never completely confirmed his very strong potential, which should have earned him to integrate the XV of France in the not so provided position of number 8.
