After the defeat against Pau, Montpellier manager Philippe Saint-André

Philippe Saint-André: "It is better to remember the second half than the first but this match was important to prepare for the future. The season was very long, complicated, difficult until the last week. Everyone knows the case and what happened. Mohamed Haouas was supposed to be a starter in that match. The club has made a statement, we trust the justice of our country. If the facts are true, it is impossible to condone things like that. Tonight, our young people showed character. I'm happy for them, to do 10 or 12 scrums in the Top 14, it's worth six months of championship hope. It is an accelerated learning process but it is very good for these young people. In the second half, we had an 18-year-old as a right pillar, another 19 on the left and in this context to make 7-7 in the 2nd half, it shows that we will have young people who will arrive and will enter the turnover. This year, we struggled to run as we would have liked to. Now the players are on holiday, the club will attack again on July 3 with a big preparation that we need to do
