Stade Toulousein rugby players at the bedside of Mathias, a young player who has been transformed into a quad
“A big thank you to the great players of Stade Toulouse” : Stade Bagnérais Rugby through this message published on social networks surprise visit Mathias received from Toulouse stars like Antoine Dupont or Romain Ntamack this Tuesday, January 10.
Mathias Dantin, 17, suffered serious accident on December 14
During the UNSS rugby match. The young player is young at Stade Bagnérais after the fight he took a bad fall and was quadriplegic. The club regularly releases news via social networks and most of the good ones like this special visit to show their support for Stade Toulouse.
Rugby stars in hospital
Relatives of Matias said they were in the club “This is a great initiative to take action and I’m grateful”. They said the football players’ visit caused some noise in the hospital “a lot of excitement in the corridors” when patients and carers met the most famous faces of Toulouse rugby players.
In addition to Dupont and Ntamack, players like Cyril Baille, Anthony Jelonch, Julien Marchand or Mathis Lebel visited. “There was great joy, admiration and pride in our son’s eyes” Matias’ parents committed to Stade Bagnérais.
I have to say this Matias’ story quickly gained momentum in the rugby world. After his accident, UNSS competitions
suspended in college and high school, re-authorized in early January for rugby V and non-confrontational rugby league only.
Autographed jerseys as gifts
The Toulouse visitors also gave Mathias a few gifts: a Stade Toulousein shirt and a few items signed by the players. The president of Stade Bagnérais also visited the young player and gave him a gift France XV jerseythis time he was signed by the Blues.
