On Sunday afternoon, in front of thousands of spectators, the meeting was marked by six attempts, five yellow cards … and three red cards. So the referee, whose ears warmed up due to the enthusiasm of many local spectators, was not idle during the match.

Louzy fans came in droves to advance their team.

If the Luziens finished the match at 13 (lower than Rennais), after Belie and Chappesioni outed due to excessive use of their upper limbs (76), their expulsion did not have the same effect at the end of the meeting.

Without insulting the Argentine’s third streak, the opening match exit denied the Gunners to Lucien. Kick game may not have been much in the last moments, when Serge Milhas’ men failed with three points after the fourth attempt scored by substitute Echeveri in the 80th minute (30-20).

Unless someone tries

Annoyed at the end of the match, the Greens were also upset at the beginning. The yellow card issued to Nicolas Acebes from the second minute led to the disorganization of the three quarters line. The team received an attempt after one minute (0-7, 3). The masses seemed to be said, as the locals were 20 points behind, in the sum of the two meetings. But without counting on the bravery of the Lucien attackers who, as usual, faced the strongest of them.

Scrums on the buttocks, they suffered from losing some keys, and also lost their momentum. That didn’t stop the good blue flag team from pushing them all the way, and in fact, they ended up four points short of qualifying for the semi-finals. or less than a test.

It’s annoying and frustrating, but that’s how it is. It’s tough sports law. Because in the meantime, Xabi Elisaldi (16th), Elliot (34th), Heriart Oroti (40th) and thus Echeveri (80th) kept the better of hope. Backed by Matthew Bailey and his kicks…at least until 76.

Note that Rin had abandoned his classic colors – red and black – to wear a light blue uniform, shirt and shorts, and that they entered the field after two bagpipes and a bass drum. We heard the bagpipes a lot during the match. Signed that Rin was at the center stage.

Despite their elimination, the Luzis had reason to be proud of their performance.  And their trip this season.

Post-match reactions

Matthew Bailey, half of SJLO opened: “I took a red card for a gesture that didn’t suit me, a punch. I think the referee named the culprits before the fight. I had to get out and that’s what happened.”
Jacob Butica, Rin Flyalif: “It’s really good to have had this qualification in ‘Bask Country’ (remember it’s from New Zealand). I finished my trip in Rennes, which went through Wales and France, where I met many coaches who brought me so much. We will celebrate the return trip with my players Our bagpipes. »
