Racing 92 hold onto rising star Jordan Joseph

Racing 92 have retained the services of highly-rated loose forward Jordan Joseph, the club confirmed on Thursday.

A hard-running uncompromising loose forward, Joseph plays most of his rugby at 8th man but is equally comfortable at blindside flank. From 2015-2018 he was part of the RC Massy Essonne Academy and youth programs where he represented France U18 as well as the France U18 7s sides, notably in a successful 2018 season for the U18 XV's where his side dominated their tournaments.

His form did not go unnoticed and at the age of 17, he was selected for the French U20 side to play in the U20 World Championship hosted in France in 2018.

In June 2018, Joseph was named Breakthrough Player of the Tournament at the World Rugby U20s Championships before signing a deal with Top 14 club Racing 92. Still, on 20-years-old, Joseph has been linked to multiple TOP14 clubs over the past few months but has committed to Racing 92 with the club not confirming how long the rising star has re-signed.

Joseph follows the likes of Virimi Vakatawa, Finn Russell, Dorian Laborde, Gia Kharaishvili, Dominic Bird, Boris Palu and Olivier Klemenczak in re-signing with the Parisian club.
