Zapping World Fifteen Top 10: The best Top 14 scorers at mid-season
The reigning French champion relapsed last night in Paris, after snatching victory last weekend against the Bordeaux leader. However the Rouge et Noir, diminished due to the duplication with the six nations, have not been unworthy and will certainly have to leave the Porte d’Auteuil with at least one point.
One player stood out despite this defeat: Yannick Youyoutte. The young third-line, established by Ugo Mola last night, asserted himself with many scraped balls, one of which could have been rewarded at the end of the match before Hamdaoui’s try initiated by Laumape. Youyoutte spoke on this subject after the meeting at the microphone of Canal +:
“It’s a fact of match, a fact of game, it’s ch…. We send each other to training during the week, on the ground we sent each other. We had started the match badly, we came back well. Not to be rewarded for this last fault and to take a test at the last minute, it’s infuriating, but it’s part of the sport. I am in the competition, for me we must recover the defeat. I’m just a player, I’m not a referee, so the referee decided and he let play, that’s all.“
A last match without the internationals
Once again, the French internationals of Stade Toulousain will have been sorely missed, although the Rouge et Noir group is very competitive despite these absences. Ugo Mola and his players defeated Montpellier on March 20, the last match in the doubles period.
