A pink hinge at the rendezvous

The two conductors at the baton.

Morgan Parra and Joris Segonds, in their roles, perfectly led their team allowing Stade Français to win 48-10 in the Ile-de-France neighbors.

From experience, the scrum-half often played fair and argued - but not too much - with the referee.

Above all, he does not hesitate to let the big guys drive the truck, which will lead to the test of Romain Briatte (24th), the first of the match.

The opener also held his rank in the animation and in particular the kicking game.

Above all, he was invaluable against the poles, with in particular three pump strokes from more than 50 meters.

21 points in total and an 8/10 on foot.

The third Parisian line does the job, and cleans it up

Romain Briatte for the first try of the match after a series of

pick and go

(24th), Sekou Macalou for the second after an interception and a mad dash from 60 meters (33rd) and Giovanni Habel-Kuffner as a demolisher, first attacker and carrier of very valuable ball.

The No. 8, easily recognizable with his pink hair, gave the impression of being everywhere on the ground.

The last two cities were also very busy in touch and recovered several balls on opposing throws.

The Samoan third line somewhat came out of his match at the end of the game after words exchanged with the opponents.

With Le Garrec and Spring, Racing can see it coming

Nothing was on the side of Racing, except perhaps its young players.

As usual.

At the start of the match, Nolann Le Garrec lit the first fuse on a breakthrough from 50 meters (4th).

Above all, the young scrum-half sticks perfectly to the ball and always plays fair.

At the end of the first period, he followed the action well and allowed the Ciel et Blancs to score their first - and only - try of the match.

Max Spring tried a lot.

105 meters won with the ball in hand and three crossings for the young rear, who often came up against a fierce defense.


Russell doing Russell

We know him well now.

Finn Russell is capable of the best and the worst.

Often in the same game.

At the start of the game, he "spoiled" Nolann Le Garrec's great breakthrough by missing his pass at the foot (4th).

Half an hour into the game, he was wrong again on a raise from his own side and allowed Sekou Macalou to plant the second try of the match (33rd).

But, he will catch up five minutes later.

First by a huge blow from his camp which allows to find a touch close to the opposing in-goal (38th).

Then on to the action that follows.

After a missed throw, he recovers the ball in the center of the field and hits over it.

Scramble in the Parisian defense and try ensured by his scrum half (40th).

Replaced in the 51st by Antoine Gibert.

Racing too faulty

Stade Français excelled this Saturday but were well helped by their opponent of the day.

Racing 92 has made too many mistakes.

Five penalties conceded in the first half hour of play. And it didn't go away.

Joris Segonds tried his luck on six penalties against the posts.

The catastrophic entry of Sky and White substitutes

If the incumbents were not there, what about the replacements.

Teddy Iribaren and Antoine Gibert are at fault on the third try of the SFP, planted by Léo Barré (54th).

Cameron Woki forgets his partners and eats the leaf during a three against one (58th).

For his part, Camille Chat missed many throws in touch.

Henry Chavancy was too virulent and the pack of substitutes jostled in melee.

An end to the match that we would have done well without

48 pawns conceded at home, it hurts.

If the derby was rather clean - in spirit, not the game - for an hour, it quickly degenerated at the end of the match.

A few words exchanged in the 65th before the shots a few minutes later, exchanged in front of the Ile-de-France in-goal.

This time, Mathieu Raynal rages.

Cameron Woki and JJ van der Mescht immediately warned.

Teddy Iribaren also sanctioned after watching the video, for hitting an opponent on the ground.

A yellow that was certainly red.

To see, if the disciplinary committee will be more severe.

Note that three players who entered were sanctioned.

Again, the replacements, fresher, did not play their role.

At 14 against 13 in the last ten minutes, the Parisians drove the point home and scored a 12-0.

Thought unhappy

When it doesn't want to... Arrived at Racing 92 in 2021, Baptiste Pesenti never won.

The following year, the second international line joined the Parisian neighbor.

And becomes one of the strong men of Gonzalo Quesada with 12 starts in the league.

The former Pau was therefore in a hurry to his first Ile-de-France derby and wanted to remember the good memories of his former club.

Unfortunately, touched, he is forced to leave his place before the quarter of an hour of play.
