Rugby – Paloise Section: the keys to a failure in Montpellier

Golfers have a habit of reassuring themselves with the saying that “a bad start does not exclude par.” He understands that a bad opening sequence is not necessarily fatal.

For the Section traveling to Montpellier, this theory was not relevant: the first few minutes only set the tone for a gloomy autumn afternoon.

Golfers have a habit of reassuring themselves with the saying that “a bad start does not exclude par.” He understands that a bad opening sequence is not necessarily fatal.

For the Section traveling to Montpellier, this theory was not relevant: the first few minutes only set the tone for a gloomy autumn afternoon. After Debaes’ kick-off, the Paloise Section failed many things: they returned balls either by offers (Debaes trapped) or rucks misapprehended (Maddocks), they made mistakes and above all they left open spaces. On a second ball left by Thibault Debaes to the trickster Garbisi, Montpellier took advantage of it: the ball was deflected towards Rattez who, with Garbisi in relief, resisted Maddocks and Daubagna before offering the first try to Coly (10-0; 17th). . The fouls were also paid dearly: in minute 20, the 5th penalty conceded by Pau (Zegueur) brought the MHR closer to the Béarnaise line. New ball discarded, new attempt: Foursans and then Garbisi find Ngandebe (17-0; 23rd). The sketch of a one-sided game.

disciplinary matter

There is a sector in which Pau had a great advantage over Montpellier. Unfortunately for the Paloise Section it is in the “penalties granted” category: sixteen fouls against only eight calls against the MHR. Seven in the first half, nine in the second: it’s too much trouble. It is a question of a bad image returned in the scrum (2 penalties) and in the ground game. And of a repetition that is worth the inferiorities: against the reigning champion of France, playing fourteen against fifteen is not a gift. Problem Pau received two yellow cards with Corato (32nd) and Zegueur (49th for too many offsides)

Touch that laughs but melee that screeches

Two scrums entered, two penalties conceded: the Saturday of the pillars of Pau began in a bad way. This didn’t build confidence, it could have cost even more if Foursans hadn’t missed a penalty that resulted from it (8th)…

But a price had to be paid, especially when, after a penalty snatched at the introduction of the Hérault, the MHR returned to the Pau field via penalty, the starting point of an infernal possession sequence concluded with the test of Dakuwaqa (56th; 31 -10).

Cruel on the spot because the starting point of this poorly negotiated melee by the Bearnese is a maul stopped after a shot by Lucas Rey captured by Cummins. However, touch is the positive point this Saturday, both in Delhommel and Rey’s throw-ins (only 1 lost ball) and in cons (2 stolen balls).

The editorial advises

the siren that hurts

Returning to 17-10 just before half-time thanks to a Daubagna penalty and a Gailleton try in force to conclude a sequence of possession started by a penalty touch, the Paloise Section saw their hopes dashed: looking for the touch, Maddocks did not try. send the ball to the stands, Bouthier played it. It was the founding act of a murderous renaissance with a Dakuwaqa break after Guidicelli and a ball deflected to Foursans, the starter with Béarnaise descent (24-10; 40th).

This sequence illustrates the balloons that remain available. Which add up to renders all the time…

coaching without effect

24-10 at halftime, for a team looking for consistency, things had to change. Sébastien Piqueronies and his squad made four changes at half-time: Corato, Fisi’ihoi, Capelli and Puech left; place in Papidze, Tokolahi, Tagitagivalu and Joseph.

In truth, the impact was not amazing. It must be said that the MHR sent heavy calmly with a full front row and second row Florian Veraeghe, then a little later Zach Mercer and Louis Carbonnel… In the reorganization game, Montpellier was also stronger. With this essay Dakuwaqa signed well (56th) and then another, ten minutes later, the work of Rattez after a terrible sequence (66th; 38-10).

Enough to capture the strong feeling of a Pau defense, sinking into a vicious circle of fever. Even if Pau, following in the footsteps of Zack Henry, corrected things a bit in his ability to finally attack the right areas to end Jordan Joseph’s test of strength, it was too little (79; 38-17) to hide. the class difference. The test with Montpellier’s response to the siren with Ngandebe after a suffocating sequence (43-17).

clouds on the horizon

Two outings probably wouldn’t warm Pau’s heart: those of Jordan Jospeh limping low (ankle according to Sébastien Piqueronies) and that of Jack Maddocks, thigh bandaged and limping. A report will be made within 48 hours.

The evolution is expected to be favourable. Because next Saturday Toulon plays at Le Hameau (matchday 5), a team that Pau has never beaten in the Piqueronies era. An appointment that promises to be hot after the defeat of the RCT in Perpignan (19-13).
