Cameron Woki continues his meteoric rise

Being part of the revelations of the XV of France during the November tour, with a remarkable performance against the All-Blacks, Cameron Woki continues to demonstrate, week after week, the full extent of his talent. Omnipresent in the ruck zones with three scraped balls, the third row of the Girondins has once again ensured its role as captain of one of the best line-ups in the Top 14. Proud representative of the battle on the ground won by its partners against With the high-sounding names of Stade Toulousain like François Cros, Anthony Jelonch or Peato Mauvaka to name a few, he is increasingly asserting himself as one of the best elite players in his post. At only 23 years old.

Seuteni-Moefana, pair of aces in the Gironde game

A new high-end copy for the pair of Girondin centers.

Constantly putting their teammates in the ball advance in hand, Ulupano Seuteni and Yoram Moefana also lent a hand to their forwards in the defensive sector.

The first named also believed to register a try in the 8th minute thanks to a service from the second before the referee Mathieu Raynal logically cancels it after video arbitration for a forward.

Two of the strong men of the Girondin dynamic, which chains an eighth victory in its last nine meetings in the Top 14.


Muzzled by the Gironde defense, Dupont and Ntamack did not exist

It is rare enough to be underlined, the international hinge of the XV of France delivered a poor performance. Constantly under pressure by the rapid increases in the defense of the UBB, Antoine Dupont failed to breathe rhythm into his partners, to undermine his opponents. After several unusual blunders at home, marked by forward and ill-adjusted passes, he left frustrated in the 70th minute, replaced by Baptiste Germain. If he went to the end of the meeting, the feeling is the same for Romain Ntamack, like a game with too long foot and filled with frustration (74th), at the end of a long streak of his partners , unable to advance in the opposing camp. If the Stade Toulousain has shown so much pain, itis above all because of the XXL service delivered by all the men of Christophe Urios, who have yielded only once, on a charge from François Cros at the foot of the posts (48th).

Breakage in the ranks of the UBB

This is the big black point of the beautiful evening in the Gironde.

UBB lost in quick succession its captain Mahamadou Diaby, affected in the adductors after a clearance at the foot (38th) then its striker Mathieu Jalibert, replaced at the break at the opening by François Trinh Duc, after being hit in the thigh at the end of the first act.

Two weight losses for the new leaders of the Top 14, who are preparing to start their European campaign next Saturday, against the English Leicester (4:15 p.m.).
