The young section is this season at the test of the Federal 2 female. An apprenticeship that continues this weekend with the derby against Colomiers-Léguevin.
To say that the trip to Pamiers disappointed is an understatement. TOEC-TOAC-FCT women are competitors and lose 31-10 cannot be seen well. “I don’t know what happened, reacts Rachel Adam, Toulouse center. The march was perhaps too high. A few errors put us at fault.” “The Pamiers players were better and more realistic. Their opening half Mélanie Sabatier was a real conductor of her line of attack and hurt us, laments the three-quarter coach Bertrand Cabrol. But so we had a slump that we are regularly used to.” So this Tuesday, for the return to training, we had to pinpoint these errors and correct them. Because this Sunday presents the Colomiers-Léguevin agreement, runner-up of the hen, and which has just inflicted a 95-0 on the Lionesses of Urfa.
“Take Our Revenge”
And even though both teams are young in their history, the budding rivalry between the two teams holds promise. At least, the first leg is still in the heads. “They had completely defeated us in the first leg, we lost 71-7, recalled Rachel Adam bitterly. Their team is quite young but very strong, they play well together. We are waiting for them to take our revenge at home, we will do everything we can!”
To manage to turn the tide, the players from the west of Toulouse can count on the remarkable state of mind which is their trademark. Indeed, we had to start from a blank page this season. Bertrand Cabrol is grateful: “The players manage the club and are really on their own. Girls like Rachel Adam or Justine Lassalle are both players and treasurers or in charge of logistics. And they never give up!”
For his part, Francis Cazeneuve, president of the club, praises “independence” does not show the women’s section. Also, he adds: “They create a bond in the club, it’s a real plus for the TOEC-TOAC-FCT.” All they have to do is grow.
