Rugby – Section Paloise: the keys to a failure in Montpellier

Players have a habit of assuring themselves with the adage that “bad start excludes par”. Understand that a bad initial sequence is not necessarily fatal.

For the Section traveling to Montpellier, this theory is irrelevant: the first minutes only set the tone for a dark autumn afternoon.

Players have a habit of assuring themselves with the adage that “bad start excludes par”. Understand that a bad initial sequence is not necessarily fatal.

For the Section traveling to Montpellier, this theory is irrelevant: the first minutes only set the tone for a dark autumn afternoon. After Debaes’ kick-off, Section Paloise missed a lot of things: it returned the balls through offerings (Debaes trapped) or poorly caught rucks (Maddocks), it made mistakes and above all leaving gaping spaces. In the second ball left by Thibault Debaes to deceive Garbisi, Montpellier took advantage: the ball was pushed to Rattez who, with Garbisi in relay, resisted Maddocks and Daubagna before offering the first try to Coly (10-0; 17th ). Mistakes were also paid dearly: in the 20th, the 5th penalty conceded by Pau (Zegueur) brought MHR close to the Béarnaise line. New ball thrown, new attempt: Foursans then Garbisi finds Ngandebe (17-0; 23rd). The outline of a one-way game.

matter of discipline

There is one sector where Pau has a big lead over Montpellier. Unfortunately for Section Paloise it was in the “penalties conceded” category: sixteen fouls against only eight whistles against MHR. Seven in the first half, nine in the second: it’s too much trouble. It’s a question of a bad image reflected in the scrum (2 penalties) and the game on the ground. And in a repetition that costs lows: against the defending champion of France, playing fourteen against fifteen is not a gift. Problem Pau received two yellow cards with Corato (32nd) and Zegueur (49th due to too many offsides)

Touch that funny but wandering squeal

Two scrums were introduced, two penalties were conceded: the Saturday of the pillars of Pau started under poor management. It did not build confidence, it could have cost more if Foursans had not missed a penalty that resulted from it (8th)…

But there is a price to pay, especially when, after a penalty obtained from the introduction of Hérault, the MHR returned to the Pau camp with a penalty, the starting point of an infernal sequence of destruction -his that ended in the trial of Dakuwaqa (56th; 31). -10).

Brutal in the area because the starting point of this battle that was not well negotiated in Béarnais was a maul that stopped after a throw by Lucas Rey that was caught by Cummins. However, the touch was the positive point this Saturday, in the throws of Delhommel and Rey (only 1 lost ball) and in the counters (2 stolen balls).

The mermaid that hurts

Back to 17-10 before halftime thanks to a penalty from Daubagna and a try from Gailleton to end a sequence of possession started by a penalty touch, the Section Paloise saw his hopes failed: by looking for a touch, Maddocks did not try to send the ball to the stands, Bouthier played it for himself. This was the founding act of a killer revival with a break from Dakuwaqa then from Guidicelli and a wide ball of Foursans, the opener with descent from Bearnaise (24-10; 40th).

This sequence describes the balloons that remain available. Added to the translations of all…

Coaching without impact

24-10 at halftime, for a team looking for consistency, things need to change. Sébastien Piqueronies and his staff made four changes at half-time: exit Corato, Fisi’ihoi, Capelli and Puech; area of ​​Papidze, Tokolahi, Tagitagivalu and Joseph.

In fact, the effect is not surprising. It must be said that MHR sent a heavy step with a complete front row and the second row Florian Veraeghe then soon Zach Mercer and Louis Carbonnel… In the reshuffle game, Montpellier was also stronger. With this test signed Dakuwaqa therefore (56th) then another, ten minutes later, work of Rattez after a terrible sequence (66th; 38-10).

Enough to translate the strong feeling of a Pau defense, sinking into a vicious circle of fever. Even if Pau corrected, after Zack Henry, the situation of his ability to finally attack in the right places to end Jordan Joseph’s strength test, it was too little (79th; 38-17) to hide the class gap. The proof of Montpellier’s response to the siren with Ngandebe after a suffocating sequence (43-17).

clouds on the horizon

Two outings probably won’t warm Pau’s hearts: Jordan Jospeh’s with a low limp (the ankle according to Sébastien Piqueronies) and Jack Maddocks’, leg bandaged and limping. A report will be made within 48 hours.

The evolution is expected to be favorable. Because next Saturday Toulon will be at Le Hameau (5th day), a team that Pau has not defeated under the Piqueronies season. An appointment that promises to be hot after the defeat of RCT in Perpignan (19-13).
