Few changes and comebacks
The Grenoblois will face Montauban in Sapiac on Friday. For this match of the 21st round of Pro D2, the Grenoble staff proceeded to the traditional rotation. Thus, only three players who started against Perpignan will start Friday's match: Pierre Gayraud, Junior Rasolea and Raymond Rhule. For the rest, the FCG coaches have chosen Laurent Bouchet, Franck Pourteau and Thibaut Martel to start. Substitute at kick-off, William Demotte makes his return to the competition.
The first row will be formed by Jérôme Rey, Laurent Bouchet and Halani Aulika. Pierre Gayraud and Mickaël Capelli will be associated in the second row. Thibaut Martel will be surrounded by Steeve Blanc-Mappaz and Fabien Alexandre.
Lilian Saseras and Franck Pourteau will form the hinge. Raymond Rhule and Lucas Dupont will occupy the wings. Taleta Tupuola and Junior Rasolea will be associated at the centre. Gaëtan Germain will start as a full-back.
