It was Mathieu Bonello’s “thank you” to the supporters who had made the trip, who were presented late Tuesday afternoon at the traditional weekly press conference. “We all went together, the staff and the players, next to our game, we fully assume. We must be able to continue our march forward. We also get collective experience, let players play and we move forward in our choices. However, I will refrain from judging some just over 80 minutes. The main lesson is that we were not present at the engagement and that is a bit problematic, especially with players who are supposed to have played a little.

“This game is behind us”
On Saturday, November 26, Tarnais will aim to give a smile to their loyal supporters disappointed by the performance in Hautes-Pyrénées, but also find themselves bringing a high-intensity match with commitment and discipline. “When you get on a rugby field and you don’t want to go to war and get involved, you don’t move forward.

Everyone was not on the same wavelength that day, we told each other things in the dressing room, now this match is behind us., warns the third Hugo Boutin. Sporting Club Albigensian, which stayed in a good dynamic gained during the last block of matches, ensures that its recent poor performance does not put anything in doubt. The manager insisted on the fact that he would not close his group since December and therefore intends to give a second chance to those who did not know how to catch the first weekend, last. However, Saturday’s starting XV should look more like the one that has lined up regularly since the start of the season.
