When recruiting Yannick Nyanga, the Stade Toulousain guessed right. This flanker coming from Béziers is now, at only 28 years old, a strong up coming player in the international field. Quick and agile, this player with origins from congo, is formidable tackler and a fierce ball stealer. Despite the competition for the 3rd line spot, this never tired runner is imperceptible for the opposite defense and has become a key element to the team.
Last year he was an holder 11 times in the 13th first matches. The strong competition for the 3rd row position prevented him from being always holder for the final but we can say without a doubt that Yannick took a major part in the amazing season accomplished by his team.
