Mont-de-Marsan fell heavily (19-43) against Montauban, losing their seat as Pro D2 leaders to Grenoble on Friday night. The red lantern Massy got his first success of the season.
Leader in the early morning of this fifth day, Mont-de-Marsan completely sank in Montauban (19-43) this Friday night. The Montalbanais made the difference from the start, opening the scoring with a Josua Vici try from the second minute. Stade Montois, now 4th, never knew how to get into this match, conceding six tries and thus leaving his opponent, strong with the offensive bonus, to return to three points (8th).
The new leader is called Grenoble. Isérois beat Aurillac (17-9). After a failed start to the match (0-6 in 10 minutes), the hosts split up, in the wake of Karim Qadiri, author of a double in quick succession (29 and 31).
Massy finally winner
Massy, who is having a nightmarish start to the season with four defeats in four games, won his first match in a poorly ranked duel against Aix-en-Provence (23-21). In this close game marked by numerous fouls (three penalties converted by each side), the light came from the hand of Robaglia and Meïté, authors of the two tries for Ile-de-France. A victory that gives air to the Essonniens, who nevertheless remain last.
For its part, Biarritz achieved a logical victory against Carcassonne. After a fast-paced first half, with five tries scored, the second was closer. Steeve Barry scored the only win of the second act, giving herself a brace and allowing her team to win 32-23.
In the other matches of the afternoon, Oyonnax did not tremble against Nevers (23-6) to take second place, while Angoulême controlled (19-10) against Béziers. Agen won 16-13 in Rouen, thus returning to the top 10.
