Emmanuel Meifou explains his decision to play for France’s XV, not Australia!

Stade-Toulouse’s super-powerful second row, Emmanuel Meifou, has tasted the French side in recent weeks.

French coach Fabien Galthié called up the France squad for the final week of training during the Six Nations tournament.

Asked by RMC Sports, he believed the matter. Extraction:

“It was a good experience with world-class players, the number one or two teams in the world. To be with this group, this group…”

He explains that he exchanged with Fabian Caldi. Extraction:

“We didn’t talk much. But above all, he told me to keep working, to play like I do, to do well in every game. If it has to happen, the selection will happen.

If he still believes he can play the World Cup with the Blues, he wants to focus his services with Toulouse. Extraction:

“It’s not possible at the moment. I’m trying not to think about it. If it happens, great. But for now, I’m focused on Toulouse. There are still five games left in the top 14. There are a lot of games to play.

In the process, he explains why he absolutely wants to play for France’s XV and not for another country. Extraction:

“I’m here, I love this country. It’s the country that gave me the opportunity to live my dream of becoming a professional rugby player. That’s the most important thing. I want to give back everything that France has done for me. With an incredible club. This is my life. I want to play here for another ten years. I believe.

To conclude, Emmanuel Meifou admits to being approached by Australia’s coach: Eddie Jones. But he refused to wear the Wallabies jersey. Extraction:
