‘It’s true’: France playmaker Romain Ntamack drops Super Rugby hint

French half-back After revealing a shocking Super Rugby secret in a recent radio interview, Romain Ntamack might soon be traveling to play in Australia or New Zealand.

Generally speaking, Ntamack, 24, is regarded as one of Test rugby’s most dynamic playmakers. Simply put, every team would love to have a player like Toulouse’s pivot on staff.

During an interview on French radio following the publication of his autobiography, “Le rugby dans le sang” (roughly translated as “Rugby in the Blood”), Ntamack made a hint about maybe playing in Super Rugby in the future.

Ntamack told RTL, “It’s not necessarily relevant right away.” However, it’s true that I’ve always been drawn to the southern hemisphere.

“Since I was little, I’ve always watched Super Rugby.”

One of the most dynamic halves tandems in Test rugby is Ntamack and French captain Antoine Dupont at halfback. Together, the two are a deadly rugby combination as well as lethal persons.

However, Ntamack and French rugby were dealt a rough hand in the run-up to the Rugby World Cup held in France. Ntamack was unable to compete in the competition due to a severe injury.

In August, Ntamack suffered a ruptured left knee ligament during a victory against Scotland. During the World Cup, Matthieu Jalibert of Bordeaux took over as the No. 10 player and looked amazing.

However, France did not live up to their hopes and aspirations. In the quarterfinals, France was eliminated without Ntamack following a thrilling one-point loss to eventual champions South Africa.

As they departed to consider what went wrong, the coaches, players, and fans were left in shock. Ntamack, however, has categorically defended coach Fabien Galthie following the loss.

“I believe that considering all the contributions he has made to this team over the past four years, his removal in no way calls into question the work that has been done,” Ntamack continued.

“There is clearly no question about it—he is the right person for the job.”
