The controversy continues around what happened with France in the Six Nations. After what was the suspension of the match against Scotland due to the large number of cases of coronavirus in the squad, Bernard Laporte, president of the French Rugby Federation, confirmed that Fabien Galthie broke the bubble to go watch his son play.
This happened after the triumph of the selected one in the first day of the contest against Italy. On February 7, the head coach went to the Jean-Bouin stadium to observe the duel of Colomiers, a team in which his son Mathis plays. Precisely, the coach, after this action, was one of the positive cases of the team that caused the postponement of the duel against Scotland.
This news was confirmed by Laporte, in dialogue with the media France 3, who supported the head coach: “For me, you have the right to go out for the time that you had a chinstrap. It was outdoors, “he said.
At the same time, the president of the French Rugby Federation added: “He watched the match alongside Thomas Lombard (the general manager of the Stade Francais team), who is tested every three days and also wore a mask. I don’t see where the problem could be, but again I’m not a doctor“, he indicated.
By last, Laporte confirmed that the coaching position is not in danger for Galthie by this action .: “Why wouldn’t I support it? I am not a prosecutor. And it’s not because I like Fabien. He knows very well that he would not give a gift to anyone, “he concluded.
