Newcastle confirme : libération de Mateo Carreras avec effet immédiat

L’ailier argentin Mateo Carreras (17 sélections avec les Pumas) a vu son transfert à Bayonne prévu à la fin de la saison 2023/24 accéléré, Newcastle l’ayant autorisé à quitter la Gallagher Premiership pour le Top 14 avec effet immédiat ce mardi 20 février 2024.


C’est en novembre dernier, quelques semaines après que les Pumas ont terminé à la quatrième place de la Coupe du Monde de Rugby, qu’il a été confirmé que le joueur de 24 ans quitterait les Falcons pour Bayonne sur un contrat de deux ans, à compter de la saison 2024/25.

Cependant, le club français, 10e en Top 14, endure actuellement une liste de blessures qui inclut l’absence du joker médical Luke Morahan. Arrivé cet hiver, l’ancien joueur de Bristol n’a toujours pas joué cette saison.

Newcastle, lanterne rouge de la Premiership avec Steve Diamond à sa tête depuis qu’il a succédé à Alex Codling, a donc accepté de laisser partir Carreras plusieurs mois avant la date prévue de son transfert.

« L’ailier des Newcastle Falcons Mateo Carreras a rejoint Bayonne avec effet immédiat », a confirmé le club anglais par voie de communiqué.

« L’international argentin était déjà d’accord pour un transfert l’été prochain avec le club français, mais il partira plus tôt que prévu après que les deux clubs ont trouvé un accord.

« Carreras a été titularisé deux fois et a fait une apparition en tant que remplaçant cette saison, marquant un total de 16 essais en 39 matchs au cours de ses trois années sur Tyneside.


« Newcastle souhaite remercier Mateo pour sa contribution lors de son séjour en Angleterre, et tout le monde au club lui souhaite bonne chance pour son déménagement. »

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.
