Rugby – Section Paloise: The Keys to a Frustrated End

Palois wanted to bring their departure to a victorious end, mainly they missed entering this match against Castres. In the face of the team that met in Béarn to ensure a direct qualifier for the semifinals, the section proved to be very generous: Staniforth was left with a kick during the next match and was eliminated on the wing during the next match and Nakosi, served by Dumora, only had to report Botita. After 23 seconds, Pau led 7-0.

Palois wanted to bring their departure to a victorious end, mainly they missed entering this match against Castres. In the face of the team that met in Béarn to ensure a direct qualifier for the semifinals, the section proved to be very generous: Staniforth was left with a kick during the next match and was eliminated on the wing during the next match and Nakosi, served by Dumora, only had to report Botita. After 23 seconds, Pau led 7-0.

The power of character

The Palois had nothing to play for, but reassured this week that it would not change their resolve, eager to offer a royal trip to beginners (Lespiaucq, Habel-Küffner, Hastoy, Ramsay) and celebrate their 200th with a Thibault Daubagna jersey. They kept their word. The Palois, who had been cold, did not agree to stay on one knee. They could claim it because they were masterfully led by Antoine Hastoy. The opener had the title of best director, but let his digging speak in order to point his own in the right direction: Vatubua recovered after the play and returned inside to Thibault Daubagn to level (7-7; 4).

failed conquest

Pau quickly returned to the same level, but taking control was a different story. And the copy returned during the conquest was not the smallest parameter: the scrum was upset at the first half, two penalties and two broken hands, even though the penalty was torn from Castres at the beginning. Condemn this penalty given when entering from 22 meters Castres with a promising offensive touch … Tarnais did not go without the balls that Barlot (13th) returned as this wasted throw, which could turn into an impressive offensive ball if Dumora did not miss his pass …

Lost balloons

But in a game of regret, the Palois were the strongest. Sébastien Piqueronies’ men wanted to attack. However, under constant pressure from the devilishly aggressive Tarnais, they have shown a fatal fever: proof that these attackers signed Rey and then Ramsay after the show by Antoine Hastoy or Carol. But he also returned the ball at the foot of Hastoy, the second Vatubua, or a touchdown from Tuimaba, who had just been penalized for the offensive ball. When Manu went out for bleeding (23rd to 34th), the staff redistributed the cards with three changes of position – Hastoy in the back, Carol on the wing and Roudil in the middle. In truth, not much has changed. He regrets that Pau did not cross the bar of five penalties collected at half-time and therefore did not give the ball a penalty. After the commander’s mistake, Hastoy was even able to equalize (10-10; 31st). At the tempo, Arata knocks, Palis dominates Roudil in the air and the ball can be kicked out. Urdapilleta must find only Dumora with a diagonal (10-17; 40 ‘).

Old-fashioned Castres

At halftime, Castres was in the lead. Pau returned to four points after having to decide a penalty from Hastoy (13-17: 46). It was possible, but this team was overcome by its limits, which can be summed up in one word: inefficiency. However, she had balls (52% holding ball, 91 balls carried, 666 meters covered against 301, 4 crossings on 2, 21 broken balls on 14). For example, this Tuimaba rush that can play behind him is the starting point for a big action: a jump from Tagitagival to Corato, a move for Ramsay, who plays his card. Manu concludes, but the striker cancels the test (51.) Massive coaching in the 55th did not change anything despite Fisi’ihoi, Habel-Küffner, Tokolahi, Le Bail and then Lespiaucq in the 60th. Jérémy Fernandez. If Hastoy brought Pau back to one point (16-17; 61st), the Greens and Whites did not dream long: it was time to mess up the dismissal and open the boulevard at the Dumora escarpment (16-20; 62nd). Urdapilleta bring point home (16-26).

Hastoy for the point

Antoine Hastoy, the author of a good match and eleven points, failed to engrave his name on the honorary list: he finished second best director behind Léo Berdeu in the Top 14 with 250 points (251 points).

impotence four

This defeat against Castres had no dramatic consequences, but unfortunately interrupted the end of the season Section: the fourth defeat in a row in the Top 14 is unprecedented in the era of Sébastien Piqueronies … ), the stated goal. But progress is being measured: 50 points (11 wins) compared to 46 points last year (9 wins). It is another failure in Le Hameau against one of the leaders (4 defeats and a draw) and shows the progress that needs to be made.
