Of the top six in the standings, only Agen had won the day before at Massy, and Colomiers, ahead of Aurillac, on Friday March 17 at home on the 24th day of Pro D2.
In front of the Colomiers team, the Aurillac team did not make their trip a priority, Aurilac gave the Colomiers team the opportunity to make the match and win with the bonus point offensive. The five tries scored, and the two doubles from SAURS and MORO, as well as a penalty attempt ensured victory by 5 points. Thanks to this success, the Toulouse suburbs find the 5th. place in the standings before a trip to Provence Rugby, still in contention to occupy the Top6.
The kick-off is given by Colomiers. The premises and Saurs already open the counter after two minutes of play. Colomiers sweeps the field in attack. Larrieu passes his arms for Pimienta who plays his two against perfectly with Saurs who flattens! 5-0.
A minute later, Colomiers won 2 more points on the scoreboard scored by Girard. In the 6th minute, Singer is penalized for illegal scratch, Girard will take the points 15 meters from the posts, 10-0.
At halftime, the score is 17-10 for the locals.
Columérins full of vigor for over a month. Since the beginning of February and before this meeting with Aurillac, the rugby players of the Dove club had played five matches for a record of two successes (against Béziers and Agen) for three defeats (in Montauban, Grenoble and Oyonnax).
The Aurillacois, for their part, were 9th at the start of this Friday’s meetings. With 52 points, they were far from having given up on possible top 6 ambitions. But they too have been alternating the good and the bad lately: three defeats and three successes in the last 6 matches.
Aurillac is not very successful outside with victories obtained on the lawn of poorly ranked teams only. For Colomiers, this will be a real opportunity to get ahead in the top 6.
In the 81st minute, Aurillac wants to deprive Colomiers of the bonus. But Yobo commits a forward, there will be one last scrum to play for Colomiers in his 22. Colomiers wins the match 38 to 17. The Columérins thanks to this victory remain solidly in the top 6.
But the Stade cracked again in the second half, before putting on a show and offering Yabaki his first double in Pro D2 for a heavy 38-17 loss with an attacking bonus at Colomiers.
