He was outside.
I was told that he had watched the match next to Thomas Lombard (general manager of Stade Français), who himself is tested every three days and who wore the mask, ”explained Laporte on the Stade set. 2. “I don't see where there would be a problem with this.
But again, I'm not a doctor, ”he added.
Galthié not threatened
The president of the FFR also reaffirmed his support for Galthié.
"Why shouldn't I support him?"
I am not a prosecutor.
And it's not because I like Fabien.
He knows very well that I would not give a gift to anyone, ”warned the president of the federation.
Moreover, after having initially silenced our colleagues from
on a specific point of the Roman trip, Laporte finally affirmed that the players who went to eat waffles in Rome before the match against Italy “Were retested on their way home”.
Laporte also considered that Serge Simon, vice-president of the FFR and “Covid manager” of the Blues, was “not in check”.
“We live inside this XV of France what a lot of people live in the company.
