Since the departure of Ghénaël Chague, the Gantoises are still looking for a coach. Nothing new on that side, and the truce was managed with the interim of Romain Bonnafous, supported by Nicolas Labaigts for the physique and some interventions by Nathalie Arribes who knows the house well. Not enough to sow panic in the blue ranks who aspire, however, to a little more serenity, no doubt. For this difficult derby against a team of Nousty in full swing, the Gantoises could count on the return of Marie Malemanche but will always have to compose without Léa Bonnafous.
For Benoît Nougué-Cazenave, coach of the Noustysiennes, the long break had good and bad: “the positive point is that we have recovered almost all of our injured players. The problem is that there was a big brake on the rhythm, even if I know that will be the case for all the teams. “Faced with a team just behind them in the standings, the Canaries hope to chain a fifth consecutive victory to settle in the top of the pool. A place that would then allow them to play the probable deadlines with great ambition.
Lège (6th, 12 pts) – Tardets (1st, 17 pts) Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
The truce obviously did not change anything in the matter, and it is with the very becoming costume of leaders that the Souletines leave to face Lège. With less than 22 goals conceded per match, the Zibero defense is proving to be the tightest in the group for the moment. It is once again on this sector that the Battite Sarrat band hopes to build a 6th success to keep their distance from Urrugne, in ambush a small point behind.
Bègles (8th, 10 pts) – Bordes (4th, 14 pts) Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
Mélanie Prat hoped to use this truce to work well: “Unfortunately we did not have time to do everything we wanted” regrets the Bordeaux coach. Here are despite everything the reservists of the plain again on the bridge to go and face the Béglaises who seem within reach of the Béarnaises. It remains to be seen with what numbers they make the short trip to Gironde. Priority being given to the pennant team which is playing a very important match against Cognac the same day, Elsa Weider’s teammates believe they have lost some of their best elements.
Floirac (9th, 10 pts) – Ossau (10th, 10 pts) Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
Rarely will truce have borne its name so well. Between the little sores of some and the injuries of others, it was more a question of rest than of advanced training. A situation that coach Olivier Lassagne did not necessarily taste, letting go of a fatalist: “that’s life! as a comment on this month of inactivity. To see, therefore, what will be the level of freshness of the girls of the valley who travel to the Bordeaux region still without a professional babysitter. Camille Lassagne’s freelancing was short-lived, and it was Captain Amandine Courouau who once again put on the last bastion outfit. A rather consistent interim as evidenced by his 16 saves against Anglet or the 10 successful at Gan.
