Jegou et Auradou en cours de transfert vers Mendoza

Par Jérémy Fahner
TOPSHOT - French national rugby players Hugo Auradou (2nd R) and Oscar Jegou (4th L) are escorted by Argentinian Federal Police, as they leave the Interpol headquarters in Buenos Aires for the city of Mendoza, prior to an experts' report in the case of rape, on July 11, 2024. Two players of the French national rugby team are waiting to be questioned by prosecutors in Argentina about claims that they sexually assaulted a woman in an encounter the pair claims was consensual.

Oscar Jegou et Hugo Auradou sont en route pour Mendoza, où ils seront entendus par la justice argentine, selon une information de l’AFP, qui a interrogé le porte-parole du ministère de la Sécurité de Mendoza Javier Garcia.


Ils ont quitté les bureaux d’Interpol à Buenos ce jeudi matin, escortés par la police fédérale argentine. Selon des photographes présents sur place, Jegou et Auradou sont sortis presque en même temps, parka de l’équipe de France sur le dos et capuche sur la tête.

Les deux joueurs du XV de France sont accusés d’agression sexuelle aggravée par une jeune femme rencontrée dans une discothèque de la ville sise au pied de la cordillère des Andes, dans la nuit de samedi à dimanche.

Quelques heures auparavant, les Bleus, avec Jegou (21 ans) et Auradou (20 ans) titulaires, avaient battu l’Argentine (28-13) à l’occasion du premier match de la tournée de Français en Amérique du Sud.

Ils avaient été arrêtés lundi à Buenos Aires, que l’ensemble de la délégation française avait retrouvé dès dimanche. Ils ont été placés en garde à vue puis en détention provisoire, et attendaient depuis leur transfert dans le nord-ouest argentin.


Ils pourraient être contraints d’y rester le temps du procès, si procès il y a, la loi argentine prévoyant que les accusés doivent être jugés sur les lieux des délits présumés.

Le trajet entre Buenos Aires, que les deux accusés avaient rejoint délégation française dimanche, et Mendoza comprend plus de 1000 km, et prend environ 12h30 en voiture. Jegou et Auradou devraient donc arriver à Mendoza tard, ce jeudi.


L’équipe de France de rugby traverse une tempête sévère depuis son arrivée en Amérique du Sud, malgré deux victoires en deux matchs pour le moment (28-13 contre l’Argentine, 43-28 contre l’Uruguay).

A la veille du dépôt de plainte pour viol à l’encontre d’Oscar Jegou et Hugo Auradou, l’encadrement tricolore avait déjà dû gérer le post Instagram à connotation raciste de Melvyn Jaminet, immédiatement renvoyé en France.

Why Scott Robertson may need to ease big names aside for All Blacks' flexibility

One game against Fiji is not enough to show that a player is ready to play the likes of South Africa. Spreading the ball wide too much increases the risk of turnovers and we turned the ball over 20 times against Fiji which is a lot more than what we did in the two England tests. We actually turned the ball over the same amount of times (20) against England in the 2019 semi final which we lost. Fiji didn’t make us pay for those turnovers but other teams will. In the 2nd test against England this year we had 100% success rate on attacking rucks. That’s the first time the AB’s have achieved this since the 2019 opening game of the RWC against South Africa. South Africa won last years RWC and Jesse Kriel did not pass once. The days of the Conrad Smith type centre might be over. Also Conrad Smith debuted in 2004 but he did not become an incumbent until Nonu did also in 2008. As for Rieko Ioane he and Jordie Barrett put in some very strong midfield hits in the 2nd test forcing turnovers several times. Rieko Ioane hasn’t played wing in years. If Proctor is moved to 13 then the best I think Ioane can hope for is an impact player off the bench. He does not have the aerial game of Caleb Clarke or the workrate of Tele’a for 11 and going to be selected over Jordan at 14. However its much too early to replace Rieko with Proctor. Rieko was excellent in the knock out rounds of the RWC. All Proctor has to show on his test CV is a good game against Fiji.

How 'gazelle' Nick Frost thawed the hearts of Wallaby fans at Suncorp

Its almost like you read my comment on the other site on sunday morning Nick - you flagged all the same examples! 😝 Frost was motm for mine. That eg in the 56th minute in particular impressed me, nothing but sheer effort and a dupont/smith-like tracking line behind the D. Surely an effort like that from frost marries perfectly with that quote from schmidt at the start of the year about effort and work rate being 70-80% and talent is just the icing on top… What it also showed though was the players not making that effort, in that example he goes past both valetini and ikitau, and in the eg that finished with valetini scoring hunter paisami barely breaks a canter to support the break. And then there was the chase from wright and lancaster for the 2nd georgian try! One blemish - at kickoff I saw frost miss or get bumped off a few tackles and I felt like I saw what has been holding his selection back. I think because he is so big and is trying to get low to tackle, he seems to dip his head and ends up losing his balance or ability to adjust and ends up missing or making a soft hit. I think in the first 2 minutes he misses or makes 2-3 soft tackles, but you could clearly see the work rate and desire! He (the pod) also missed a kick restart or two? Also very happy to see harry wilson back in the fold. What impressed me from him wasn’t all the usual stuff he is known for, but all the other bits that usually let him down. He looked surprisingly good in the air at lineout time, physical at the breakdown, and good in the maul peeling off 3 georgians for one of the maul tries. Id have frost, skelton, wright as my 4-6 with LSL and wilson on the bench. i’m once again unconvinced by tom wirght - he was very good game 1, but game 2-3 he was back to more rocks than diamonds. There is no real other player to usurp him really so he stays in the team for now but I think Joe should put kellaway wherever he serves the team best and wright can be moved around him. Did donno do enough to overtake noah? My gut says no. They clearly had a plan to attack more so he looked better in that regard because he just had more opportunity, but they looked better off tate (who had a v good game also) then they did off donno.
