At dawn on the eighth day, Monein (6e, 12 pts) is about to play a game that turns out to be a first turning point in his season. Indeed, after two consecutive victories, the Moneinchons bowed by showing the fighting spirit against Arudy: “We managed two serious matches against Bidart and Arudy. He will now confirm at home to generate points and move away from this red zone » underlines Philippe Labarère, president moneinchon.
The Béarnais know what to expect for this match against Saint-Sever (5e, 16 pts): “We are going to be dealing with a serious client. They took a long time to start their season but we know their qualities. We are hot on their heels in the standings and they will intend to outrun us. The entire workforce and staff have grasped the importance of the upcoming match. Some juniors will contribute to compensate for certain absences. A reception is planned at the club after the match, so a victory would be welcome to spend a full evening! »
R2: Bedous (1st, 28 pts) receives the BAL (2nd, 27pts) Sunday at 3:30 p.m.
US Aspoise players (1uh, 28 pts) experienced their first defeat of the season during the last meeting on the lawn of Ciboure: “The team took too long to start their meeting” analyzes Thierry Coureau, president of the club. “At the break, we were losing (15-0) and we scored all our points in the last twenty minutes and snatched the defensive bonus at the last second thanks to a transformation into a piece which touched the post before passing. This point allows us to keep the lead before this weekend’s meeting against the dolphin triggerfish (2e, 27 pts) who had lost the week before on the field of Pontacq (29-10)”, adds the president who had only been able to count on a small part of his workforce in Ciboure “We had 29 including executives like our usual goalscorer who will be back on Sunday”. Despite the fortnight’s truce, the Bedous players remain diligent in training to continue to build on this successful start to the season.
R3: Thèze (4th, 23pts) receives Buzy-Ogeu (1st, 25pts) Sunday at 3 p.m.
Remake of one of the classics of the last season where the two formations met four times in total. The visitors had won twice in the regular phase before losing in the final stages. Theze (4e23 pts) and Buzy (1uh, 25 pts) therefore cross swords again this weekend. The locals are coming out of a poor performance on the lawn of Mourenx and will be keen to get back in the direction of travel: “We were clumsy and committed many faults in Mourenx. In addition, we received a red card, which did not make it easy for us. Our captain will therefore be suspended for the coming shock” analyzes Jean-Charles Dupin, president of AGT. “Buzy came to win with us last year, we know what this team is capable of. The players know that a victory is necessary to stay in touch with the first places. We are expected every weekend on the different lawns where we play. There’s no point in hiding, the end goal is to finish in one of the first two places to move up to the top division,” projects the president.
