Castaignede ready for Italy
22 March 2003 09:16am
Thomas Castaignede missed almost two full years with an Achilles injury but is ready to return to RBS 6 Nations action when France take on Italy in Rome.
So now, after warming the bench for the first three RBS 6 Nations matches of this season, Castaignede admits he will be in no position to bark the orders on his return to the team.
He will listen studiously to his team-mates, take orders willingly, and fall into line with all commands.
After four operations on his Achilles, he is just thrilled by the prospect of pulling on a blue jersey again.
"I am so happy," he said. "Being on the pitch is an extra chance for me, I was impatient.
"I have been with the squad since November. I was relegated to the bench at the start of the RBS 6 Nations and I was a little bit disappointed. But I knew that it would happen at some point."
