Facundo Bosch He started in La Rochelle’s 19-6 win over Racing 92 to advance for the first time in the club’s history to the end of Top 14. The Argentine was a key piece of his team in defense, which showed a superlative level throughout the match.
After the triumph, the hooker spoke with Scrum.com and he referred to what was the ticket obtained to the game for the title of the French contest, as well as analyzed the future with Los Pumas.
What balance do you make of the semifinal? Where were the keys?
“The keys were clearly in the defense and a lot in the work of the forwards who put the team forward in most situations. Obviously, when the forwards go forward, the three-quarters take advantage of it and we have to give a lot of credit to them who also knew how to play it. “
How did you feel playing from the start?
“I had already played the previous week with Clermont and I am happy to play, add minutes and be able to help the team reach the final.”
There was a game that seemed impossible for them to lose: did they experience it like this or not?
“The truth is that with the defense we had and because of how we were advancing with the forwards, it was difficult for us to miss the game. Anyway, we knew what these kinds of encounters are like, that in 10 minutes, if you’re not focused, you can lose everything you did in 70. “
Which team do you prefer in the Top 14 final?
“I think that by level we prefer Bordeaux, but personally I would like Toulouse so we have a rematch of the European Cup final.”
Looking ahead to what is coming with Pumas: How do you see yourself and how much does this performance by La Rochelle influence and your personal performance?
“I look good and really want to see the boys. Today I was with Juan Imhoff and Emi Boffelli and the truth is that I am very happy to be able to get together with the boys and live new experiences together. I hope I can recover well after the final and be in the best conditions to be taken into account in each call. “
