Paris holds firm

The Parisian defense contained the Bordeaux-Béglais assaults.

Like Marcos Kremer, Romain Briatte or Mathieu Hirigoyen, the Parisians did not give in even if they were pierced several times.

On their line at the end of the match, Gonzalo Quesada's men pushed back the UBB players to finally win, in character.

The contribution of the head coach of the defense Paul Gustard, who arrived in the offseason, has a lot to do with it.

Willis ubiquitous despite everything

He will have been one of the only ones to float on the side of the UBB.

Behind a struggling pack, the English third-line stood out first by scraping a ball in a ruck.

He then made a breakthrough before being imperial in defense.

Despite two missed receptions on candles, the brother of Jack, player of Stade Toulousain, was reassuring.

The Englishman Tom Willis showed great activity.



Holmes in lack of success

In the absence of Matthieu Jalibert, selected with the France team and Maxime Lucu, injured, Zack Holmes was in charge of the kicking game.

And the player will not have been successful... The Australian missed three penalties and therefore dropped nine points on foot.

The opening half did not really weigh offensively while his opponent of the day in the same position managed a 100% on foot.

Zack Holmes will not have weighed in this Sunday evening.


A match... without a try

Does the match rating deserve the average?

The question may arise.

Despite one or two actions at the start of the match and some flashes at the end of the game, the meeting ended without a try.

Badly negotiated excess numbers, awkwardness or badly measured footwork, no one will have found the key to breaking the opposing lock.

It is therefore the only match without a try of this 17th day of the Top 14.
