Top 14: impressive against Lyon, Bordeaux-Bègles first qualified for the final phase


The Girondins largely dominated the Lyonnais on Saturday (42-10) and are guaranteed to play at least the Top 14 play-offs.

We know the first team qualified for the final phase.

And she did it with style.

Large winner of Lyon (42-10) in their stadium of Chaban-Delmas, the Union Bordeaux-Bègles was reassured but above all validated their ticket for the knockout matches of this Top 14. With 72 points, the Girondins have temporarily grabbed the top spot and are guaranteed not to be knocked out of the top six until the final day of the regular season in two weeks.

Christophe Urios' men, who remained on five defeats in a row on his lawn, were hooked for a period closed with a tight score of 6-3.

Then, they accelerated in a completely one-sided second act, inflicting a 42-0 and five tries on the LOU players.

Deprived of the Six Nations Tournament and the Grand Slam for injury, opener Matthieu Jalibert particularly distinguished himself by crossing the line twice.

The UBB school ball, which ends up in the in-goal!!

"It's a beating", summarized the microphone of Canal + the third international Lyonnais line, Dylan Cretin, whose formation saved the honor on a penalty try in the last moments.

Provisionally fourth before the rest of the matches of this 25th day, the Rhodaniens can still qualify mathematically but will monitor the scores of the other contenders, such as La Rochelle or Toulouse.

The UBB will move in two weeks to Perpignan, which is fighting to maintain it.

The Bordelais will aim to finish in the top two to secure a direct place in the semi-finals and thus save themselves a play-off.
