It is not new, the championship of Pro D2 is full of talent. Like the Irish-born but international Dutch opener of Rouen, Peter Lydon (30 years old; 1 selection) who displayed all his qualities as a long-distance scorer, Friday, November 18, during the reception of Carcassonne at the Robert Diochon stadium.
And he still had a few good meters in his legs…
At the quarter of an hour of play of this paying match for the 11e Pro D2 daythe house gunner of the RNR has decided to take responsibility by attempting a fine of more than 60 meters, slightly offset to the left of the posts. He took it well since Peter Lydon, who went through the Stade Français, the London Scottish or the Ealing Trailfinders, succeeded in his attempt with disconcerting ease, since he even still had a few more good meters in his legs.
Peter Lydon shared his achievement on Twitter commenting “Caught this one real sweet” which can be translated as “I caught this one pretty well! “. Despite this mammoth kickPeter Lydon, author of a 5/5 during this match, however, did not allow the Normans to win against the Audois (19-22).
It’s here second defeat of the RNR at home this season, after that conceded against Agen (13-16) on September 23. Nicolas Godignon’s players will try to redeem themselves on the field of Beziersthis Friday, November 25 (7:30 p.m.), on behalf of the 12e Pro D2 day.
