Chabal quits Racing-Metro

2012-02-03 09:03

Paris - Former France international lock Sebastien Chabal has left Metro Racing over a disagreement on a contract extension, the Top 14 club said.

Chabal, who was left out of the 2011 Rugby World Cup, has left "by mutual agreement" after failing to reach an agreement with president Jacky Lorenzetti on a contract extension and the "club's playing strategy", according to a Metro Racing statement on Thursday.

Chabal won 62 caps with France and had joined Metro Racing, in the outskirts of Paris, from English club Sale in 2009.

He has not played for France since Les Bleus's 22-21 defeat at the hands of Italy in last year's Six Nations. Chabal, who is not in this year's Six Nations squad, is now free to join any club.

      Think the Bulls are looking for locks. I think they will be looking at anybody tall...well tallish.

      Brannas, we were waiting for Bulldozer to make a correlation between the Stormers and Chabal, but we understand he is trying to make a correlation between Gert van Rooyen and Sam Ramsammy. It will actually not be a bad idea for Chabal to play for the Stormers, except they might have a language problem with all the difeerent types of Afrikaans spoken in the WC and then English and French, but Gugeletois is understandably a French neighbourhood now. The one thing that Coetzee needs is someone with aggression so that that person can fire up the Stormers pack when Coetsee is doing his make up for his next TV interview.
