ASM Clermont - Section Paloise: the keys to a race with a handicap that is too big

At the end of the match, Yohan Beheregaray, from Béarnaise from Clermont, saluted the defensive organization of his team. And for good reason, the Auvergnats put up a wall and then wove a net around their Pau hosts. As a result, the Section had to wait a quarter of an hour to play its first drinkable ball, while Belleau had already investigated the foot (6-0, 9th)… When he finally managed to loosen his grip thanks to Laporte and then to Le Bail, the yellow and blue curtain was instantly reformed (28).

At the end of the match, Yohan Beheregaray, from Béarnaise from Clermont, saluted the defensive organization of his team. And for good reason, the Auvergnats put up a wall and then wove a net around their Pau hosts. As a result, the Section had to wait a quarter of an hour to play its first drinkable ball, while Belleau had already investigated the foot (6-0, 9th)… When he finally managed to loosen his grip thanks to Laporte and then to Le Bail, the yellow and blue curtain was instantly reformed (28).

Just before half-time, Falgoux preferred to make a mistake and draw a yellow card rather than let Joseph escape on the try, giving Henry 3 points instead of 7 (16-9, 40th). By dint of tripping up the defensive line of Jono Gibbes’s flank, also because of too many approaches and the slowness of his supporters, the Palois were penalized four times for balls stuck to the ground. Including three that cost 17 points…

The turning point of the 44.

On a recovery ball, the ASM tries to extend its 22 meters. Penaud was ahead (44th). Pau’s melee is sanctioned. But the Béarnaise line-up worries its counterpart in the penalty touch. The potato is too hot and hooray rugby passes follow one another to Colombet’s wing. The winger does what he can but he finds himself isolated and locked in the ground.

Mr. Gasnier raises his arm to sanction him. Belleau finds a penalty touch 10 meters from the Béarnaise line. The greats of Auvergne take turns with speed and power. Iturria ends up finding the foul on the edge of the ruck, with a charge tinged with finesse (23-9, 49th). A bamboo shot, while Section was in good position to score.

The editorial advises

misplaced sanctions

Booed on the ground, as against Perpignan, Pau retained another thanks to his ugly victory achieved last weekend (16-14). If Captain Whitelock’s men stole or “tainted” five opposing strokes, they lost three penalty strokes, two of which were major. However, it was mastering the ammunition in the air well that allowed Henry to recover before the break (16-9, 40th). On the other hand, the lost ball in the 43rd minute triggered the return of the 44th and the break test for the Clermontenses. Finally, one last missed shot took away all hope of a crazy comeback (78th).

enthusiasm and will

The Béarnese wanted to put a lot of enthusiasm into their game after a lackluster performance against USAP. Fairly successful bet. If it was their scrum that gave them the first three points (6-3, 16th), it was their climbing ability and good play under pressure combined with aggressive defense that gave them the draw (6-6, 19th). Even when Raka, who twice served to the back of the flank on marvelous one-step passes after well-placed mauls, scored (16-6, 35), the Paloise Section was not demobilized.

What’s more, it was just after Iturria’s “bamboo shot” feat, excellent this Saturday afternoon and at the end of the contract in June 2023 (we say it like that…), when he raised his head. Good attack rewarded with a penalty, a well-structured maul and Delhommel being brought down from a corner (23-14, 52′). Then the Béarnaise peloton won the matchup and Henry rewarded them (23-17, 62nd).

The editorial advises

one try for nothing

Problem, while the momentum is clearly Pois, the Section is shot in the foot. After the expulsion, Capelli charges without strength and is trapped on the ground. Plisson returns the visitors to 9 points (26-17, 63rd). They are cornered in their camp but they resist fiercely.

When Hewat escapes and transmits to Daubagna, they are even believed to be capable of the Michelin Stadium robbery. But the scrum half is too lonely. The Auvergnats put their hands on the ball in the ruck, Penaud grabs it, pushes it with his foot, dribbles a bit and then finally lets go of the Béarnais (33-17, 76).

With pride, however, they will score one last try at the end, stringing together well-controlled scrums. ASM is in agony and Mr. Gasnier goes between the poles (33-24, 82). You are welcome…

Laporte, worry

Already decimated behind, with the absences of Manu, Decron, Tuimaba, Ikpefan or Pinto, the Paloise Section may have some concerns. Clément Laporte, a very good defender, had to leave in the 58th minute after suffering a tackle in which he sprained his knee. If Sébastien Piqueronies seemed to say after the match that it was more of a precaution, the former Lyonnais will undergo additional tests.
