RACING 92 24-30 TOULOUSE (Saturday)
An extremely even game, with a Parisian team that, classified to the Champions Cup final (they will face Exeter), did not have their main figures … From early on, the visiting team was going to prevail in the game: 10 ‘in the first half came the first conquest through Matthis Lebel, who surprised everyone from his own start, flew through the air, took the ball and went straight to the ingoal. After a while, at 24 ‘, it would be Cheslin Kolbe’s turn, who again added 5 after a great collective maneuver by his teammates. But Racing 92 was going to react, with two tries, in the hands of Donovan Taofifenua and Jordan Josephebel. However, the last word was to be had by the Toulouse wing, Zack Holmes, who put a bow to a prepared play of his cast and thus took away the chance for the locals to remain undefeated.

With Pablo Matera as captain and once again showing his skills with his feet, the Parisians beat Agen who could do little. Gonzalo Quesada’s team had Marcos Kremer as Matera’s teammate on the third row and Nicolás Sánchez entered with 11 minutes from the end and hit a conversion, although he also missed two penalties. The tries came through Wyse Nayacalevu (53 ‘) and Yoann Maestri (80), the latter after a visitor error in the last meters. Joris Segind added the 2 conversions and 1 penalty. The only 3 points of the visit came with a penalty from Hugo Verdu.

With Sergio Parisse on number 8 and without Facundo Isa or Ramiro Moyano, the rojinegros won a good victory. The one who did return is the South African Eben Etzebeth in the second row. The only try of the winner was scored by Gervais Cordin and Louis Carbonel took over the conversion and 6 penalties. For the outsiders scored Cobus Reinach and Vincent Rattez. Antonhy Boutier was in charge of the posts to the sticks with 1 conversion and 3 penalties.

Although the first to hit would be the local team, through wing Luc Aymeric, who crowned a play that was conceived in a great reception in the line of the Argentine second row Mariano Galarza, the rest of the game was going to be all of La Rochelle … The visiting team was going to reach the ingoal rival four different times: Geoffrey Doumayrou (24 ‘), Levani Botia Veivuke (35’), Dillyn Leyds (39 ‘) and Grégory Alldritt (49’). Another factor that was going to help La Rochelle win comfortably was the effectiveness of his starter Jules Plisson in exchanging penalties for points, by sending them to the posts (10 had 16 points).
