The operation to maintain the CSN begins against the Corréziens. He will have to do better at the start of the match and solve the problem of conquest to win. “For us, the championship starts this weekend with an important game in the race to maintain. We will have to play a big match to hope to win, ”says Alexis Jolivet, the Nontronnais coach.
Nontron needs points all the more since he will then have to go to Neuvic and receive Vergt.
Saint-Astier/Neuvic, precisely, does not have to be ashamed of the performance delivered on Saturday September 17 against the Sarladais who, although having lost elements in the off-season, still remained on the rhythm of the Federal 1 (22 -38). The game will probably not be easier in Figeac (3:30 p.m.). During the first day, the Lotois took the offensive bonus point from Nontron (14-38) and placed themselves at the top of the pool, tied on points with Sarlat.
“It’s a big block of entry matches, says Jérôme Houy, the coach of the Usanist three-quarters. Figeac is one of the big stables of the hen. We will go without much pressure but with the idea of working on our game plan. And if there are points to take, we will take them. We will have to reproduce what we did in the first half against Sarlat, by correcting the problems in touch. We work for this. »
