INFO RMC SPORT Second row and captain Romain Sazi will continue to wear the colors of Stade Rochelais for an additional season. New Zealand’s scrum-half Tawera Kerr-Barlow also extends.
This time, doubt is no longer allowed. Thursday, RMC Sport indicated that Romain Sazi was in very advanced discussions to extend his contract, thus imitating Kevin Gordon. According to our information, the case is now closed.
The second row, the new captain will remain on Friday night to receive Bordeaux-Beagle on behalf of the 10th day of the tournament, from La Rochelle next season, number 13 at the same club since his arrival in 2010 from Montauban. The 35-year-old is one of the most famous players of the Bahri club, and was among the top 14 teams and qualified for the Champions Cup final last season.
Discussions for Uini Atonio
In addition, La Rochelle did not want to part with the New Zealand half of Tawera Ker Barlow, also at the end of the decade. Whoever has 27 picks with the All Blacks (last four years) will continue the adventure too. Kerr-Barlow (31 years old) in 2017 reached an agreement for another two years. He also starts tonight against UBB in his ninth meeting of the season in the Top 14.
Finally, behind the scenes, we are already working on the future of Oweny Attonio. Leaders want to secure the future of the international law pillar (31 years, 37 choices). Even if he is under contract until 2023, discussions have already begun to extend it.
