At La Rabine, Vannes brought the leader, Grenoble, in line to take the chair. A clear success (26-10) in which Maxime Lafage cheerfully participated, skilful on the foot, but also well inspired on the jump pass for the test of Nathanaël Hulleu.
And here is Vannes who moved into the lead, tied on points with Mont-de-Marsan, who got rid of the promoted Soyaux-Angoulême (34-26) in two stages. Led at the break, after notably conceding the fastest try of the season, after 24 seconds of play, the Montois were able to rectify the situation in the second period.
Colomiers, he went for a nice success in Béziers. A 20-17 victory, won on a penalty from Romuald Séguy, author of 15 points, in the 78th minute, for Columérins who only led in the last two minutes of the match!
First home success for Agen
In his new Armandie, Agen did not miss the meeting and won his first success at home this season in front of Aurillac, with an offensive bonus as a bonus (43-20)! In a full stadium, the SUA did not skimp, with three tries in the first period. This great success allows the Agenais to finish well a mixed first block (3 wins and 3 losses).
Nevers also recorded a third victory, taking advantage of Rouen’s far too many faults (27-17), thanks to the foot of their South African striker, Shaun Reynolds (17 pts). Aix-en-Provence forced Oyonnax to a draw (19-19), thanks to a penalty from Florent Massip in the 75th minute, thus preventing the Haut-Bugistes from taking control of the division.
Finally, in the misclassified match, Massy went to Carcassonne for a second fundamental success in a row (17-20). After an idyllic first period where the Massicois led 17-0, the promoted Ile-de-France was scared, but resisted until the end.
