Leicester-ASM: Baptism of fire for Jauneau, big comeback for Ezeala

With 19 points to come from losing the first leg (10-29) at Michelin, excitement will be limited for ASM this Saturday (18:30) in Leicester. Despite all this, the meeting will not lack interest, with a composition of the Auvergne team almost half renewed compared to last Sunday.

The biggest “attraction” will undoubtedly be the first pro term of the young and promising scrum half Baptiste Jauneau (19). The U20 international will form the hinge with Camille Lopez, taking the place of Morgan Parra, who was on the bench in what may be his last European game with ASM.

The other highlight from Clermont’s side comes with the great return of Samuel Ezeala right on the touchline. The Spain winger, who has continued to pick up serious injuries, particularly to his knees, has not played an official XV game since February 20, 2021. His only game in almost two and a half years.

Moreover, in addition to the injured (Vahaamahina, Lavanini, Bézy, Iturria, Matsushima, Ravai, Pélissié, Barraque, Van Tonder), several players (Fischer, Slimani and Vili) were also retired by the staff.
