“Endless love, that's it!

And it continues, ”reacted Matthieu Jalibert from Marcoussis where he is preparing with the XV of France for the first test match of the autumn tour, scheduled for November 6 at the Stade de France.

True child of the UBB where he practically made all his classes there, the opener intends to continue to grow with his club and take him to the Brennus Shield.

A strong signal sent by the club to the competition

For the Union Bordeaux-Bègles and its president Laurent Marti, it is also a very strong signal sent to the Top 14. Even if the UBB does not rely on a patron like many other French clubs, the club proves that he can keep his best players in order to continue his ambitious project.

Over the past three seasons, the Union has taken on a new dimension with the arrival of Christophe Urios and the emergence at a very high level of certain players.

Second in the championship this season behind Stade Toulousain, UBB receives Clermont this Saturday (9 p.m.) on the 9th day of the Top 14.


Why is the XV of France an indicator of the change in status of the UBB?
