Rugby: Fleurance’s hopes fall at home

For this first afternoon of rugby at Marius-Lacoste, the party will have been almost perfect. Indeed, the hopefuls let slip a victory that seemed to reach out to them. For Team I, mission accomplished.

Hopes: ASF 22-Saint-Jean-de-Luz 26. For the ASF: 1 try from Torres; 1 conversion and 5 penalties from Labro. This match will have been the match of missed opportunities. And for not having been able to concretize its actions in the highlights, the Fleurantins ran after the score. Admittedly, the men of Decotte and Espinasse took the lead at the break (16-9) but the turning point of the match was to be played at the start of the 2nd period when ASF suffered a double penalty: yellow card and penalty try. At the end of the match, the Basques were accused in front of their line but they resisted and won 26 to 22. Despite the disappointment, we will have to retain the positive with the volume of play which is interesting, it just lacks a bit of binder.

The team was made up of Labro, François, Gomes, Moncassin, Breton, Pailhe (o), Lucchini (h), Begue, Betous, Dalla Barba, Charles (cap), Turro, Caleffi, Torres, Yuste and Caubet, Lafforgue, Zachariades, Vilers, Cattaneo, Garrigos, Betous and Debladis.

Team I: ASF 27- Floirac 10. Bevilacqua’s partners ensured the essential in this match, namely the victory. Even if we can regret the loss of the offensive bonus, largely within reach, the four points were really the essential objective to appear well in this national 2.

The program. Sunday September 25, the I team will travel to Saint-Jean-de-Luz, while the hopefuls will be in Anglet.
