Unlike last season, when the star had trouble during the first days, the Arudyens (1st, 5 pts) succeeded in their return to the stadium with a first improved victory against St Sever: “On paper we achieved a perfect first game with a five-point win without conceding a try. But if we look in more detail, we could be more precise in our kicking game because despite our big domination in the first period, our opponents stay in the game with our ten missed points (10-3 at the break) “, underlines the new trainer Alexis Jeanson.
Who evokes the first trip to come: “The team from Nord Béarn (6th, 0 pts) had a complicated trip to the lawn of Bidart, they will surely be revengeful and we will have to be more killers if we want to hope to win. Especially since the weather should not serve our style of play. All the more reason to score as many points as possible when we have the opportunity! »

We are lucky to be complete for the upcoming game and we would like to field a reserve team soon”.
