After an exciting career full of twists and turns, Max Karabinak decided to suspend his string straps. Back to a wonderful trip to say the least.

In the paper list of players’ off-season moves presented by the club during the General Assembly, a name and first name were manually added to the paper: “Maxime Carabignac, stop”.

feelings. “Max”—like his three other Lairack teammates who were halting their football careers—received a lively tribute from the public, but half of the scrum was excused from absenteeism for professional reasons.

The former professional decided to end his career even though he had a lot of fun playing in competition. His body called him to stop so as not to put his life in danger. Matteo De Carli and Eric Bordela agreed with this decision. “I couldn’t necessarily attend all the training sessions on health issues, and I played on Sundays. I had to respect the group too, it’s been in my head since the middle of last season,” says the new retiree. oval;

his new life

Monday 25 July 2022 (Like every Monday at the end of the day), in the parking lot of the Pénétro Stadium, a Hyp’s Truck food truck has been installed. On board, Maxime is there to serve gourmets with burgers accompanied by local produce. Not far from there, the players have already set their bars to attack the 2022-2023 season on the lawn. Strange feeling. Maxim turned the page to continue writing the page for the company he co-manages with Mohamed Jami. It has been nearly two years since Tube Citroën, which has been transformed into a mobile restaurant, has been transformed into Agenais Restaurant and part of Gers. Maxim has the soul of a merchant. His parents ran the tobacco mill in Pont de Cass for 23 years. The young Carabignac fell into the pot of trade and rugby at Pont-du-Casse at COP to the bottom line with his passion for hunting.

“I went around. It was time to stop. I had some good rugby moments. I had a great time,” he admits. His best memory: “Bring SUA back to the top 14 with the title of French Pro D2 Champion in 2010”. Then he decided to turn the page leaving “blue and white” on this good note.

Maxime does not forget his international career with the French youth teams. Shared adventure with his Suavistic teammates: Benjamin Sore, Jean Monribot, Thibaut Lassalle, Damien Lagrange or Michel Denêtre.

With 122 professional matches played with Agen, Albi and Colomiers, an equally large number with amateur clubs Tournon-d’Agenais, Layrac and New Zealand’s Glenfield FC, the player has put his time in this iconic sport in the family’s DNA.

Henry Broncan, the wizard of Gers, admits “a very great complicity with Maxime”.

Coming to SU Agen, Henry discovered Maxime when he was an Amal. Matteo Barrow took first place in the team. “They shared the situation with Maxime’s youthful vitality and Mathieu’s career,” explains Broncan.

“Maxime was part of the team that beat Toulon de Umaga 33-0,” confirms the Jers coach, “and then confined himself to hope with Christian (Lanta) and Christophe (Delod) and that’s why I took him with him when I went to the Albi in 2010. He became team captain Albi. When I left Albi he went to the Colomiers. You asked me what I thought. I told him he would succeed. Maxime was a very talented player physically. Sometimes he didn’t think enough about his game and if he was asked to think about it, his performance was less good. He’s a natural player. It was a great pleasure meeting him with Miélan during our matches with Layrac. A former scrum half, we have a great bond all around.”

A pleasure to evoke the career of Maxim Karabinac. “When he enters a field, it’s to have fun, to play, to have fun,” Bronkan adds.

Maxime Carabignac was the French Sevens rugby champion with SU Agen at Bayonne. “We beat Stade Toulouse in the final 35 to zero,” Bronkan said. “Toulouse had a very good team with Eribarin… We have an extraordinary tournament. The Bourdella brothers accompanied me. Unforgettable!”

Maxim moved to amateur rugby with friends “in good spirits in Tornon”. “I found there: Olivier Severzot, Anthony Tarrett, Guillaume Robert. We played good matches, got good results.”

In New Zealand, Maxime combined rugby and country discovery with “once a week fishing in the wonderful lands”.

Maxime played his last match at Stadio Benetro with Laerac in the first leg against Barbizio on May 29. His little family was present as if to accompany him in this “monastery” in Agnes. During the final stages when Paul-Louis Baskett returned to competition after a long absence due to injury, Maxime told us that their stories resonated with them. “It’s great to play together when we know that our grandparents and fathers played on the same team at SUA. Who knows if our sons will play together? It will be the fourth generation Basquet-Carabignac,” he continues.

Maxime is not leaving Penetro with Hyp’s Truck parked on Monday evenings. This decision to stop playing for the sake of self-preservation is an honorable and respectful decision.

“He’s a fantastic player who made the club grow,” explains Matthew De Carli. “He is a boy who understands things faster and analyzes very quickly. He is able to find solutions against all opponents. He makes his partners shine.

A boy who remains in place, despite his great career, is easy to manage and tries to bring his stone into the building to support his coaches.” The ASL manager continues: “He will leave a great picture on the Pénétro side for all those who have had the chance to see him play. He has been hampered by injuries which unfortunately forced him to stop his brilliant career for us.
