Top 14: UBB easily masters La Rochelle and returns to the podium

In this clash, which some dare to call 'Atlantic derby', it was the final phases which were played out. Or rather the reception during the barrage. UBB (3rd, 58 points) hosted Stade Rochelais (5th, 56 points) in a heated Chaban-Delmas stadium. With the support of the public, and an armada on hand, the Bordelais quickly took control of the game, but remained imprecise for a good twenty minutes. After a poor dismissal from Leyds, the Bordelais finally found the fault thanks to Boniface (5-0, 22nd), who replaced the ill Kaulashvili. The left pillar gave wings to his team, who scored the second try straight away after good work from Penaud for Moefana. (12-0, 26th)

The back of Stade Rochelais, at fault in Bordeaux's opening score, then caught up to get his team back on track. He intercepts a double pass from the locals and goes for the try before being caught by Bielle-Biarrey, but Berjon is there in support to score (12-7, 31'). The Bordelais did not remain on their little mistake and continued to want to push the visitors, who remained intermittently dangerous. It is also in a La Rochelle phase that the Bordelais will shine with a dazzling counter-attack led by Penaud. The ball ended up on the right, after a final relay, on Bielle-Biarrey who concluded this magical counter-attack. (19-7, 39th).

The UBB did not want to leave any hope of returning to La Rochelle. From the start of the second period, the Bordelais moved forward to attack the La Rochelle goal. After a touch, then by a ball advanced by the forwards, the ball sailed to the left for Jalibert who found Tatafu. The third row scores the bonus try for Bordeaux (24-7, 41st). This is only the beginning of hostilities for UBB which scores a fifth try, thanks to its hooker, Lamothe. The Bordeaux forwards really tormented their evening counterparts.

On a kick from Jalibert which flew into the goal, Alldritt thought he was alone to flatten, but did not see Penaud arrive. The winger jumped on the ball and scored his team's sixth try (34-7, 61st). Symbol of a meeting, where the Maritimes completely plunged, facing Bordeaux domination. Antoine Hastoy scored the second try for Stade Rochelais, as a last stand, despite a missed score by the opener of the evening on the Rochelais side (34-14, 75th). UBB returns to two points behind Stade Toulousain and can calmly watch the clash this Sunday evening between Stade Français and Stade Toulousain, while Stade Rochelais remains under pressure in 6th place.
