Sébastien Piqueronies (coach of Pau, beaten in Bayonne 35-16): “We are not missing much, but the essentials, namely commitment, discipline, mastery. We are absent, at least not invited. It's a soft Section that doesn't deserve to take points. This is not the image we used to give. We were able to get closer to the line, but there was a lack of responsiveness to the carrier, we were penalized on the ground game.
This is clearly a warning, our progress in direct conquest was ephemeral. I felt we were irregular, not very confident in the ground game, we made obvious mistakes in control. As early as last week, I anticipated a possible lack of humility. I don't dare believe that. On the other hand, we lacked commitment and discipline.”
