For its recovery in the new Regional 1 rugby championship, the Clisson bag (in Loire-Atlantique) played Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde on Sunday.

Authors of a successful first half during which they scored three tries, the Clissonnais still leading 20-9 shortly before the end of the first half.

Led at the break, Saint-Herblain fought back

A more than honorable score, almost unexpected against RU Saint-Herblain, on the podium last season when the Nantes Vineyard XV finished in the red lantern. “We were able to put in place a defense system that worked in the first half, analyze Christophe Surget, the new backs coach. But it didn’t work in the second half.”

The Saint-Herblain players offered little hope to the Rouge et Vert in a second act dominated from start to finish. By quickly scoring a first try, then a second, the Herblinois did the hardest part against voluntary Clissonnais, but unruly with three yellow cards.

“We start from zero”

Outnumbered for much of the game, the SACC players lacked clarity on their rare incursions into the opposing camp

It is encouraged for the future, even if it is disappointing. We would have liked to start with a victory

Christophe Surget, coach of SAC Clisson Rugby

“We have just arrived, we are in reconstruction, recalls for his part Hervé Paturaux, coach of the forwards. You have to be lucid, you start from zero. We will see at the end of the competition where we will be. But in the meantime, we remain humble.

Fontenay then Cholet on the program

The calendar however did not facilitate the task of the XV of the Vineyard which will face two big fish over the next two weekends.

Before the reception of Cholet on the 1uh October, the SACC could receive Fontenay le Comte this weekend due to the ground ban orders which hit the Vendée due to the drought.
