French flair is exported well to Bordeaux. UBB, which faces La Rochelle on Sunday evening as part of the seventh day of the Top 14, has a large contingent of French internationals in its ranks. Lucu, Bielle-Biarrey, Jalibert... And now Damian Penaud, star recruit of the Bordeaux club. Returning to the game during the defeat against Pau (20-11) without having touched a single ball, the second best try scorer in the history of the French XV started against La Rochelle.
To celebrate this in style, the former Clermontois received a pass from his teammate in the selection, Mathieu Jalibert. After a sprint along the touchline, and thanks to a favorable rebound, Penaud was able to score his first try under the Bordeaux colors. Which could well be the first of a long series!
