Coach's Quote:
"Energetic hooker who buzzes around and gets involved in everything. Works hard in defence and has the skills to facilitate other players in attack. Very coachable and wants to improve."

Personal Quote:
"I decided to come to Scotland to improve my level of English and then be able to join a business school. I also wanted to progress on the rugby level, discover the Scottish style of play and above all live an incredible human experience.

My feelings of this year are really positive. When I arrived in Scotland I hardly spoke English, today I manage to hold a conversion with a Scottish person. This progress is down to hard work during the 10 hours of lessons per week at the college. On the rugby level I have also progressed enormously thanks to the academy's coaches who are real professionals, but also to my support club who trusted me and integrated me directly into his first team. I have progressed a lot in terms of the vision of the game and technically. In Scotland the game is really based on speed and bringing the ball to life, which is very interesting because in France it is a game more based on the balance of power. I am also very happy with the integration into my support club, the players and the managers were very welcoming with me and quickly integrated me into the collective. Scotland is truly a fantastic and very welcoming country. Its culture is also exceptional, notably through its gastronomy with haggis, beer and whiskey. Finally the city of Glasgow is a fantastic city which mixes the old and the modern. It is a dynamic and cosmopolitan city. Glasgow is a city on the go with an impressive number of students and lots of pubs to go out on weekends which is really good to end the week."
