This Friday evening in Leucate, Racing Club Narbonnais lost its first friendly match against Montauban, by a short header (7-12).
In this first friendly match for RC Narbonnais, we had to wait until the 42nd minute of play to see the first points scored, on a try from Montauban. Faced with solid opposition from the Tarn-et-Garonnais, the Audois conceded two tries by Guillemin and Laval. But at the very end of the match, with character, the “orange and black” will register a test on a long action. Hooker Martin Vaca is at the conclusion of this action, to reduce the gap on the scoreboard. For this first repetition, Racing lost five small points (7-12).
On the ground of Leucate, the “orange and black” showed beautiful things, commitment, fight and heart at work. This performance will give reasons for satisfaction to Julien Seron and his staff, and also material to continue to prepare for the resumption of competition.
On August 19, RC Narbonnais will host Nîmes (Nationale 2) for its second friendly match. The “orange and black” will then challenge Nice on September 3 (6:30 p.m.) at the sports park, for the first league match.
