Jaminet departs Toulouse to return home to Toulon

BY Philip Bendon  ·  Thursday Nov 16, 2023

French fullback Melvyn Jaminet has officially bid farewell to Top 14 champions Toulouse, confirming his move to Toulon. The 24-year-old’s departure, initially rumored after the World Cup, has now been confirmed by both clubs. Jaminet is set to join Toulon at the end of the month, embarking on a journey with the team that extends until 2028.

This significant transition is being dubbed a homecoming for Jaminet, who had previously trained with Toulon as a teenager before opting for Perpignan. While he joined the five-time European champions at the start of the last season, stiff competition from established France fullback Thomas Ramos, along with other talents like Ange Capuozzo and Juan Cruz Mallía, prompted Jaminet to seek new opportunities.

Jaminet is expected to integrate into the Toulon squad by December 23, coinciding with their clash against Toulouse at the Stade Ernest-Wallon.

Expressing his satisfaction with the signing, Toulon President Bernard Lemaître remarked, “It is with great satisfaction that we welcome to Toulon a local boy who has enriched his technical background through his talent, self-sacrifice, and hard work during his stints in our neighboring clubs, then in Perpignan and Toulouse.” Lemaître also extended gratitude to Stade Toulousain and its President Didier Lacroix for prioritising the player’s interests.

As Toulon eagerly anticipates Jaminet’s arrival at training, President Lemaître emphasised the collective ambition to continue their winning streak with the talented fullback. This move marks a pivotal moment in Jaminet’s career as he embarks on a new chapter with Toulon, further shaping the landscape of French rugby.
