Stade Rochelais – Racing 92: With Ihya West at the opener and Antoine Hastoy at the back

It is also an opportunity to revive Ihea West, who remained in a very difficult match for him in Oyonnax, during the fifth day, and who we have not seen since. The New Zealander, who returned this summer after spending a year in Toulon, did not hide that “he may be under a little pressure. But since the beginning of the season, like the team, we have not reached our real level. I am focusing on my game and what I can do better and how I can help the team.” »

For this, he will be able to rely on Antoine Hastoy, while keeping Brice Dulin: “It’s great, we have two generals, two guys who know how to manage our attack, and it’s good to have two guys who talk a lot, which can see spaces and announce things. We “I need to be involved, I won’t always be in the top 10. It’s up to us to play more with the ball and create chances.”

These are not the only changes made by Ronan O’Gara and his deputies. Therefore, the one who started very well against UBB, Teddy Iribarren will lead the strikers, who knows the opponent’s habits well after 6 seasons at Racing. “Last week gave him a lot of confidence, he had played so little before. He changed the game, so that’s good for him and good for us as well.

As for the rest, Jorge-Henri Coulomb Rizele and Judikael Kankuret join the attack, and Oyeniy Atonyo and Paul Bodehint take their places on the bench. On the wing, Nathan Bollinger replaces Jacques Noel and Huani Busmorin, who has four tries in two appearances for Espoirs, as substitutes, as well as Tawera Kier-Barlow and Joel Sclavi.
