Author of his first try with Stade Toulousain last week, Melvyn Jaminet confided in a press conference on his rapid adaptation to the Rouge et Noir.
Last season, he had waited for the very last meeting, the Accession Match against Mont-de-Marsan in June, to register his first (and only) try of the 2021-22 financial year, with Perpignan. Transferred to Toulouse during the summer, Melvyn Jaminet gave himself his first try with the Rouge et Noir from the 6th day last Saturday, at the last minute during the 46-10 victory against Clermont. The 23-year-old French international fullback (12 caps, 26 conversions, 36 penalties, 0 try) has had a good start to the season (29 points scored in 5 games) and he puts this down to a very good adaptation.
Jaminet: “I got used to the city very quickly”
“I quickly acclimatized to the city, I feel very good here and I think it’s important to be comfortable in the city where you arrive. With the club, it went very well. When I arrived I already knew quite a few players from the France team and that obviously helps. Today we all get along very well. There is a good emulation and a very good group. (…) It’s going very well, there’s healthy competition, everyone wants to play and that’s normal when you’re a player. It pulls us up, it’s beneficial for us and for the team. Since the beginning of the season, we have shown that each time there was a change, each player who entered the field wanted to earn his place. “said the native of Var at a press conference on Thursday. Holder three out of five times since the start of the season, Melvyn Jaminet has already taken his bearings to strike at the Ernest-Wallon stadium, even if it is Thomas Ramos who has taken care of the kicks in home games so far. . But he will be ready to take over if necessary. Maybe next week against La Rochelle?
