CA Brive Corrèze carried out an excellent operation in view of the maintenance by winning Sunday at Le Hameau against the Section Paloise (27-32).
The Corréziens - who sign a fifth victory in six matches in the Top 14 - scored two by tests by Kamikamica (24th) and Bituniyata (55th), against three for the Béarnais through Lebail (28th), Whitelock (47th) and Lespiaucq (60th).
But the boot of Enzo Hervé, the Brivist opening half, author of 22 points, made the difference.
With this success, the “Coujous” give themselves some air and go back to 9th place ahead of Castres.
The Section, beaten for the fifth time this season at home, remains at a disappointing 11th place.
