Fixtures and Top 14 results
Ranking Top 14
All victories are important, but this one has a special taste.
The UBB remained on two games without a win in the league, four in all competitions.
Faced with his former coach Christophe Urios, Bordeaux did not show feelings, and won against Clermont (18-9).
A victory that allows Bordeaux to move up to seventh place, one point behind Bayonne, sixth.
Holmes provides on foot
In a game without a try, the kicking game was very important.
And in this sector of play, Zack Holmes has been almost beyond reproach.
6/7 for the Australian tonight who scored all 18 points for his team.
Number 10 was also good in the game, with 80% successful tackles.
A match with UBB, a match without try
An evening that was played on foot this Sunday evening.
The 27 points scored were thanks to the feet of Zack Holmes and Anthony Belleau.
No try then, and a new match without a try for the UBB.
This is the third consecutive match without a try for the Bordelais.
A victory certainly, but a new offensive breakdown.
Clermont's lack of accuracy
In several areas of the game, the Clermontois lacked accuracy.
From the first minute of the match, the Jaunards missed the reception, which would offer the first points of the match to Zack Holmes (3rd, 3-0).
In the scrum, Ojovan was penalized twice for kneeling on the ground.
Offensively, the Auvergnats wasted a few cartridges (6th, 21st, 61st) with in particular several forwards (8 forwards per hour of play).
Defensively, it was not much better, like the penalty conceded after a screen from Fritz Lee (50th, 15-6).
Kubriashvili's bad move
Gestures you don't want to see.
But above all, totally ridiculous and penalizing for his team.
Kubriashvili punched Jolmes, which earned him a yellow card (65th).
With his team already trailing 18-9, he left them outnumbered for 10 minutes.
Difficult to come back to the score in such conditions...
