INFO RMC SPORT – The multi-purpose center Vincent Martin, who has played Montpellier since 2016, has not been retained and will join Biarritz, which has been promoted to the top 14.
The Biarritz Olympics are preparing for more than next season. The Basque club, which dropped tickets to the top 14 thanks to its win over Bayonne at the Entrance Barrage on June 12, is increasing its recruitment to create the most competitive team possible.
The international hub, which has been signed up for three years, has already signed several recruits, including Tevita Kuridrani (30, 61 caps) and Monster James Cron’s Irish International Pillar (30, 3 caps). Not to mention the colors of the BLO over the next two seasons, not to mention the arrival of Welsh technician Barry Maddox as backline coach (Shaun Sowerby, who is in charge of forwards, has extended his contract until 2023). This is not the end.
According to our information Vincent Martin will also play in the Basque Country. The center will operate for two seasons when his contract with Montpellier, who has played five seasons, expires.
The 28-year-old center or winger, who has gone through Toulon, Lyon and O’Neill, will complete the Bearits Squad this summer. Martin has played 15 league games this season and four in the European Cup with MHR.
