STADE FRANÇAIS 51-21 BRIVE (Sunday)
A win in Paris for the team led by Gonzalo Quesada. With the presence from the start of Pablo Matera and Marcos Kremer, the owner of the house started half hesitant, but then he woke up and took advantage of the untidiness of a rival who could not stand on the court, except on rare occasions when he arrived at the try. The presence of the Argentine debutant in Brive, Lucas Paulos, gave him a little fresh air in the line of his team that, especially in the complement, was overwhelmed by the pressure exerted by the Stade Français, among which Kremer stood out both in attack, recovering key balls, and in defense. During the second stage, Nicolás Sánchez also entered, giving the final injection to his team to decree victory in the last minutes. For the Paris team, the tries were by Telusa Veainu (15 ‘), Kylan Hamdaoui (27’), James Hall (34 ‘), Gerbrandt Grobler (55’), Wyse Nayacalevu (65 ‘) and Mathieu De Giovanni (67 ‘), while in Brive they joined Joris Jurand (31’), Pietro Ceccarelli (37 ‘) and Kitione Kamikamica (46’).

The rest of the conquest of La Rochelle came from the hand of Willem Liebenberg (21 ‘) and Grégory Alldritt (45 and 51’). Although it was the homeowner who started better with a victory by Paul Abadie as soon as the match started (4 ‘), he could do little in the face of the minute-by-minute growth of his rival on duty. La Rochelle win that asserts itself to the top of the Top 14.
