After the end of the VI Nations, it's time for the return of internationals to the clubs. This Sunday evening, rugby fans are entitled to a gala poster between Union Bordeaux-Bègles and Stade Toulousain at the end of the 19th day of the Top 14. For this clash, the Gironde club will be able to count on the return more earlier than expected from its international opener, Matthieu Jalibert. Following a knee sprain with an affected internal ligament, the Bordeaux No.10 was initially expected to be out for at least six weeks. "Already the diagnosis was less severe than what we predicted when he came out, when we saw the image. He has forms of regeneration that are a little faster than others, that's not his first injury. He knows himself, if he resumes, it’s because he’s 100%,” declared his teammate in the middle, Maxime Lucu, starter against Toulouse. The other UBB internationals, Damian Penaud, Louis Bielle-Biarrey, Nicolas Depoortere and Yoram Moefana will also start.

On the Toulouse side, Ugo Mola's players suffered a defeat in Perpignan on the last day. In Bordeaux, the staff of the reigning French champion can count on numerous returns to their XV such as those of Julien Marchand, Thibaud Flament, Alexandre Roumat or that of Thomas Ramos. On the bench, Cyril Baille, Dorian Aldegheri or star scrum half Antoine Dupont can contribute at the end of the match. At a press conference, the three-quarter coach of Stade Toulousain said he placed more importance on the quality of the game rather than the result: "It's the match that brings the group together following the 6 Tournament Nations and this period of doubles which was very positive for us. It allows us to reconnect, and I hope so in the best possible way. What is certain is that this match will be difficult, expected, with a a certain enthusiasm from the Matmut Atlantique stadium which we love very much and which has often been successful for us. Whatever the outcome, we will be much more attached to the content than to the result, as we have been doing in recent weeks." If successful at Matmut Atlantique this evening, the Toulouse team can regain the lead in the Top 14.

The final match of the 19th day of Top 14 between Union Bordeaux-Bègles and Stade Toulousain is scheduled to kick off on Sunday March 24 at 9:05 p.m. at Matmut Atlantique in Bordeaux (France). Adrien Marbot will be the referee of the match.

Holder of the TV rights for the Top 14, Canal will broadcast the clash between the Bordeaux and Toulouse residents.
