Zapping World Fifteen Grand Slam, competition with Léo Coly, Mondial 2023…
This start to the 2022-2023 season was certainly not the one dreamed of by Union Bordeaux-Bègles. Beaten on the first day in his den of Chaban-Delmas against Stade Toulousain (25-26), the men of Christophe Urios once again lost the following weekend on the lawn of the champion of France Montpellier (29- 19).
Then thirteenth in the standings with only a small point on the clock, the Bordelais had no choice but to win against Castres Olympique on the third day to start their season. Thing done with a 33 to 12 victory allowing the UBB to regain color and above all confidence. But that did not allow them to win and perform the right operation on the lawn of Aviron Bayonnais last weekend with a 20-15 defeat.
Then thirteenth in the standings with only a small point ahead of the red lantern, Perpignan, the Bordelais know that a disappointment this Saturday (3 p.m.) against the Stade Français is not allowed. After having praised the good evolution of his team compared to the last season, at the start of the week, the Bordeaux manager, Christophe Urios “witness a revolt” of his men.
“I’m expecting a revolt. It’s an important match that has an urgent nature. We have to put it in mind even if there is no fire at the lake. We have to we are able to impose what we want to do, to be much more aggressive, much more determined and to raise our collective and individual level. I expect a revolt from the forwards in particular.”
