Kicking orgy

It is often said that when the teams exchange kicks, they observe each other.

Well then, the Stade Français and the UBB observed each other throughout the meeting!

As proof, nearly 68 kicks were exchanged in this match.

Despite a first failure, Zack Holmes adjusts a first kick before passing the second 5 minutes from the end of the first half (34th).

Note that during this first act poor in opportunities, Habel-Kuffner received a yellow card.

Segonds passes three points before the end of the first half.

Joris Segonds managed 12 points on foot.

During the second act, the Bordelo-Bèglais show beautiful things.

Like a great action initiated by Willis but poorly concluded by Vergnes-Taillefer.

Holmes will miss a new penalty while Joris Segonds will continue his 100% on foot to pass 6 points.

The end of the match will be marked by two breakthroughs of the young Louis Bielle-Biarrey which will ultimately have given nothing.

After two penalties quickly played by hand, Stade Français will turn their backs so as not to take a try and win in their den of Jean-Bouin.

Morgan Parra's teammates widen the gap on Lyon (3rd) while UBB stagnates in 7th place.

For the show, we will come back.
