La Rochelle’s reactions

– Pierre Bourget, a whore –

“We will not hide it, Today we played 30 minutes, then we struggled up front. We usually have a big scrum, tonight it turns against us, it should be good for the future. Lots of indiscipline in this game as well. We have to use that to grow.”

– Ronan O’Gara, Director –

The second half was very poor. We had players at the right pace, others not up to the task. You can’t be in the top 14 like this. We gave them hope, we were not fatal. It’s frustrating, but we have to look at the European Cup now.”

Next week, the Maritimes will host Glasgow Club on day one of the Champion’s Cup. Sunday 12th December meeting.
