The MHR will soon announce the extension of their center Arthur Vincent, a 23-year-old international center (with 18 caps).
Here is something to uplift the spirits of Montpellier residents. The center of MHR, Arthur Vincent, will be extending his contract with his training club. According to our information, the French international (18 caps, 23 years old), currently with the national team for the World Cup, has reached an agreement with his club for the next four seasons. He is now tied to the 2022 French champions until 2028.
When he extended his contract in 2021 until 2024, Arthur Vincent had specifically declined an offer from Stade Toulousain. He will continue to call Hérault his home for a few more years.
Arthur Vincent a été lancé en professionnel à ses 18 ans par Vern Cotter. C’était en octobre 2017, en remplacement de Benjamin Fall lors d’un match contre le Stade Français. « Celui-là, vous verrez, il va aller loin », promettait le technicien néo-zélandais à l’époque.
Vincent’s journey proves him right. He became an international player in February 2020, at the young age of 20. It happened during Fabien Galthié’s first match as the head coach of the French team, against England. It resulted in a 24-17 victory against the finalist of the last World Cup.
The person born in Mauguio becomes a key player for the French coach and takes part in every campaign until the tour in Australia in 2021. However, two serious knee injuries will slow down his progress. A French championship title was won with his club during this time.
In Montpellier, Arthur quickly rose to a leadership position. Xavier Garbajosa even appointed him as captain at the age of 19.
