Hit at the end of the first half against Glasgow, last Friday against Glasgow in the Challenge Cup final, Baptiste Serin, who returned to the second half on crutches, passed reassuring exams. The RCT scrum-half will only be out for three to four weeks.
Toulon supporters feared the worst for Baptiste Serin (28). They can blow. The scrum half of RC Toulon has passed reassuring exams, tells us The team this Tuesday and he will only be absent for three to four weeks, according to the same source. A small miracle knowing that seeing the hero of the first half come back in second on crutches, last Friday at the Aviva Stadium during the Challenge Cup final between Toulon and the Scottish Glasgow Warriors (43-19 victory over Toulonnais), few people would have imagined that the former UBB player could resume training in just a few weeks.
A rupture of the cruciate ligaments had even been evoked hot for the one who had allowed first at the foot then on a try and again at the foot to quickly create a gap against the Warriors before being injured and having to abandon his teammates. Such an injury would obviously have proved very problematic for the French international, who would probably have had to say goodbye to his hopes of participating in the World Cup in France next September and October.
Serin can regain hope for the World Cup
Fortunately, more fear than harm for Serin, who can therefore continue to dream, he who has not worn the blue jersey since March 26, 2021 on the evening of a defeat against Scotland during the 6 Nations Tournament but whose superb season on the Rade probably allowed him to completely reshuffle the cards and to be able to think of having his chance again. On the other hand, barring another miracle, we should no longer see the native of La Teste-de-Buch (Gironde) in the Top 14 this season. Except for a rather incredible combination of circumstances (Editor’s note: The LOU, which currently occupies 6th place, is five points ahead of the RCT before the last day), Toulon, which will receive Bordeaux-Bègles, should not, in fact, succeed to get on the wagon for the Top 6. Especially without Serin.
