French players lift 1+ ton car off the road ahead of Top 14 game

An amazing piece of footage has emerged on Twitter of Castres players picking up a parked car ahead of their clash with Clermont in the Top 14.

A Volkswagon Polo was blocking the team bus from making a tight turn en route to Stade Marcel-Michelin on Saturday and the Castres players lost patience with time to kick off running low.

Several players got off the team bus and simply lifted the car to one side in order for the driver to make the turn and get them to the stadium in Clermont.

A WV Polo weighs well over a ton and it appeared to be lightweight for the half-dozen players to lift the back wheels onto the pavement, which will probably be a shock to the owner when they see the footage online.

Unsurprisingly the players involved were front rowers Wilfrid Hounkpatin , Levan Chilachava and Antoine Guillamon plus lock Théo Hannoyer while the backs remained firmly on the back seats of the bus watching on.

The players then put the car back where it was after the team bus had moved ahead and they were on their way to the stadium.

In the end the early warmup could have given Castres the edge as they came away with a 30-34 win through a late try from French flanker Kevin Kornath.

Castres are now two wins from two in the early stages of the Top 14 season and looking good for the season ahead.
