Antoine Dupont, auteur d’un doublé, a été désigné "meilleur joueur" de la finale du championnat remportée par le Stade toulousain vendredi à Marseille sur Bordeaux-Bègles (59-3).

Antoine Dupont, who scored twice and was named “best player” in the final won by Stade Toulousain on Friday in Marseille over Bordeaux-Bègles (59-3), is “capable of revolutionizing his sport”, said his coach Ugo Mola, adding that the scrum-half could still manage to “surprise”.

“What was great with what Antoine did”, that is to say, deciding to participate in the Olympic Games with the French rugby sevens team and therefore playing less as a XV this year, “that is to say, in the end, he was called upon sporadically during the season”. And, he added, “every time he has been with us, he has really been the player he is capable of being in the big moments”.

“The XIII throw”

Dupont, this spring, won three finals: in the Sevens in Madrid during the last stop on the World Tour, and twice in the XVs, in the Champions Cup and then in the Top 14. He “remains” to win the gold medal at the Paris Olympics (July 26 – August 11). “His status is no longer to be defined”, Mola estimated, adding that he hoped for a “nice little message” from the coaches of the French team at sevens because he had taken off Dupont in the 70th, to avoid any injury.

Before adding: “I remain convinced that few players have the ability to change their sport […] and I think that Antoine, in the few years he has left, is capable of revolutionizing his sport". "I might launch him (in rugby) league by the way", he concluded with a smile.
