“Won’t be the same” – Five major rugby stars won’t be playing in 2024 Six Nations

#2. Antoine Dupont (France)

The 27-year-old athlete plans to temporarily step away from the 15-man rugby game to pursue an Olympic gold medal in Paris next year.

He is slated to join the sevens squad, drawing inspiration from Sonny Bill Williams, a Rugby World Cup champion with the All Blacks, who participated in the New Zealand team during the Tokyo 2021 games.

This decision poses a significant setback for Les Bleus, who aim to secure their 11th title, with their latest triumph being the Grand Slam in 2022.
