Arrived in Brive during the season as a medical joker, Arthur Bonneval should remain faithful to the Corrèze club despite the now official relegation to Pro D2.
Arthur Bonneval does not intend to see the story stop right away. While he wore the colors of Stade Toulousain throughout his professional career launched in 2013, the one who was international in rugby 7 eleven times seized the opportunity offered by Brive last January. Faced with the injury of the back or winger Joris Jurand, the leaders of the CAB opted for the recruitment of a medical joker.
While his playing time under the orders of Ugo Mola was not assured, the son of former international Eric Bonneval accepted the proposal from Patrice Collazo and signed up with the Corrèze club only until the end. of the 2022-2023 season. The situation was likely to change with the relegation of CAB, which is now inevitable. Indeed, the defeat conceded against Castres last weekend as part of the 25th and penultimate day of the Top 14 combined with the victory of Perpignan against Toulouse put an end to Corrèze hopes.

Bonneval, objective ascent
The future of Arthur Bonneval was uncertain as his contract came to an end. While he has already participated in eleven meetings with Brive, all as a holder, the native of Toulouse intends to stay in Corrèze. Indeed, according to information from the regional daily The mountain and everyday The team, “everything is closed” for the 27-year-old to write the next chapter of his professional career in Brive.
Like his trainer Patrice Collazo, who assured not to consider leaving a few months after taking over from Jeremy Davidson, Arthur Bonneval will probably only have one mission in the months to come. It is that of allowing the CAB to find the elite of French rugby from the 2024-2025 season.while he will find the Pro D2 four years after having left it on a championship title.
