rugby – pro d2 – Duel at the top of the table between Grenoble and Aurillac

September 21, 2022

Three wins and one defeat, Aurillac and Grenoble have the same record before facing each other this Friday evening at the Stade des Alpes, a match to follow live on Jordanne FM at 7:30 p.m. We expect a big fight between the second and the 5th of Pro D2, a duel between two very solid teams in conquest…

We are spoiled for the last game of this first block of the season, Stade Aurillacois visits a team that aims to return to the final stages.

Grenoble wants to return to the final stages as soon as possible

After an average season where the Grenoble residents finished in a modest 12th place, and far from the expected objectives, the people of Isère are thirsty for revenge. The Aurillacois will have to be solid on the strengths of Grenoble: the conquest, and in particular the ability of this team to steal balls into touch.

The Aurillac coach, Roméo Gontineac, well insisted on collective defense and solidarity : two essential elements to bring back points from the Stade des Alpes on Friday.

The keys to the match: conquest and discipline

To overcome this Grenoble team, Stade Aurillacois will have to make the perfect matchespecially in the scrum, where the Isérois are a little more penalized at the start of the season.

Pay attention also to discipline, since even if the number of faults is satisfactory, the Aurillacois have not played an entire match at 15 against 15 since the start of the championship.

Few changes in the 23

For this 3rd trip of the season, the Aurillacois staff should keep practically the same groupwhile integrating some fresh players.

The Aurillac center, Lucas Vaccaro, will thus play his first minutes this season with the Rouge et Bleu. In contrast, Latuka Maituku and Adrian Smith should not be moving to Grenoble.

Grenoble – Aurillac, will be live on Jordanne FM, Friday at 7:30 p.m. with Alexandre Faucher.
