Hugo Aubry is in talks to join Pro D2 side AS Béziers-Hérault ahead of next season, leaving now-relegated Rouen Normandie, and it is seen as a positive step for the 21-year-old fly-half.

Rouen have allowed players to move to new clubs if there are proposals, but Aubry at first seemed keen to stay and help them earn promotion back to the Pro D2.

As Béziers-Hérault are looking for a suitable bench replacement for Spain international Charly Malié, besides Victor Dreuille, Aubry has caught the club’s eye and is seen as a promising signing, and conversations are underway.

The talented playmaker had his international breakthrough season in 2024, when he was picked by then-Portugal’s caretaker head coach João Mirra, starting four out of five games for the Os Lobos.

The fly-half finished the season as the top point-scorer, scoring 55 points from the boot, and finishing with a 90 per cent kicking- accuracy something only previously done by Os Lobos fan favourite, Samuel Marques.

Aubry came through the La Rochelle set-up before moving in 2023 to Rouen Normandie, where he had a short stint in the main senior side, playing eight games and scoring ten points.

If Aubry pens a contract with Béziers-Hérault he would be the fourth Portuguese player joining the club, as fellow Os Lobos teammates Marques, Hugo Camacho (hired after leaving Bayonne last May), and Francisco Fernandes are also on the roster.

A decision is set to be made in the next two weeks, as AS Béziers-Hérault want to wrap up their roster before July 1.

Aubry will not play any part in the Portuguese summer internationals campaign, against Namibia and South Africa, as he is currently recovering from a shoulder injury sustained in the Men’s REC final against Georgia.
