the Villeneuvois will have their work cut out for them in Lézignan

Thomas Monclus, the brothers Albert Evan and Lilian, Franck and Antoni Maria. Names that smack of Lot-et-Garonne rugby league. Yes, but the green jersey they are wearing is not that of Villeneuve RL, but of “Feuceuleu”. And it is these players who will face the Villeneuvois, this Saturday afternoon in their Moulin stadium, hostile ground if ever there was one, and even a little more this season for the Leopards in search of their first success.

Beaten dry by Albi on November 12 (34-6) on the lawn of Max-Rousié, Thomas Lasvènes and his teammates are in doubt. The players of the Constant Villegas-Laurent Carrasco tandem have not had enough problems with opposing defenses since the opening of the championship to claim victory.

Things could change with Netane Masima, the Fijian rookie, in charge as fly-half. With two weeks of training to take the measure of his new team and his new teammates, he will lead the green and whites into battle this Saturday. Will that be enough against Lézignan? Not sure. Currently fourth (13 points) just three lengths behind the Limouxin leader, Philippe Laurent’s men have revenge to take. They owe this place at the foot of the podium to the rouste lost by the players of Limoux (56-10), two weeks ago. Reduced to twelve for 65 minutes, the Lézignanais did not digest this bitter defeat.
