Castres Olympique 20 – 7 Union Bordeaux-Bègles

40′. Half-time at Pierre-Fabre

Castres is logically in the lead at the break. Surprised by an early try from UBB, Jeremy Davidson’s team was able to get back on track thanks to their collective strength. Nakarawa distinguished himself on all fronts. Le Brun was very active and brought danger to the Bordeaux camp, but his approach to the foot deprived Castres of 7 precious points (one penalty, two failed conversions).

35′. Magnificent test of the CO!

And three for Castres! Starting from the left side, Nakarawa pierces the Bordeaux lines and transmits the ball with one hand, in the air, towards Goodhue. The first Castres marker transmits the oval, which passes from hand to hand to end up in the arms of Hulleu who dives at the last minute into the goal, resisting Uberti’s return. Le Brun misses his kick again by sending the ball to the Bordeaux left post.

31′. Second Castres try!

Following the scrum, the blue and white shift the ball to the left, Nakarawa makes the decisive pass for the essential Le Brun who concludes at the right end of the opposing camp. The latter takes care of the transformation without blinking this time.

21′. Castres regains the advantage!

Garcia transforms the try and gives the Gironde advantage even more.
