Injured in the right shoulder on April 4 against Edinburgh, Henry Chavancy underwent surgery on Thursday. The captain and three-quarter center of Racing 92 announced a few hours before the derby against Stade Français that he would not play again this season.
A few hours before the derby on Saturday afternoon (2 p.m.) between Racing 92 and Stade Français Paris on the lawn of La Paris – La Défense Arena, the Pink Soldiers, who lost Lester Etien on Thursday until the end of the season, are not the only ones in turmoil. Racing is also entitled to its share of misfortunes, and the latest is anything but likely to give wings to Ile-de-France when approaching the home straight. The Sky Blue and White will indeed have to continue the exercise without their captain Henry Chavancy, absent since April 4 and who will not play again this season. The three-quarter international center underwent surgery on Thursday for a left shoulder injury contracted against the Scots of Edinburgh in the round of 16 of the Champions Cup (56-3 victory for the Racingmen). On social networks, he then announced with regret to his followers that he would not find the land before the start of the school year.
Terrible timing for Racing
Good luck Captain, come back soon 💙💙💙😘#RacingFamily https://t.co/GdYOdMnDKr

“Following my shoulder injury I had to undergo surgery yesterday (Thursday) and therefore put an end to my season. It’s a big disappointment for me but it was the best solution for the future. I obviously stay behind the Racing92 friends! Thank you for your support ”, posted the 32-year-old player, tenured 15 times in the 17 games he played this season in the Top 14 and who had been aligned from the start the three times Laurent Travers used him. in the Champions Cup. This was particularly the case during this final exit of April 4, against Edinburgh, which he paid at a high price. Racing too. It is indeed without one of its engines that the Hauts-de-Seine club will have to end the season. If the Ile-de-France residents, third in the standings, should not suffer too much at the end of the regular season, Chavancy, loyal to Racing since its debut, could however sorely miss them for the final phase.
