Toulon-UBB: Depoortère as savior, Biggar disappointing... Tops and flops


In a final Bordeaux offensive, three-quarter center Nicolas Depoortère recovers a ball 40 meters away, hooks Aymeric Luc and overtakes the few Toulonnais who returned to defend. He goes straight towards the Toulon goal line and scores a very good try, giving victory to his team. He will immediately leave for Marcoussis to join the XV of France. And will aim for a first start in blkeu against Scotland.

The UBB winger kicked off the hostilities this Sunday evening by intercepting a ball in the first seconds of play, before making a run of more than 80 meters to score the first try of the match after only 29 seconds of play. The Congolese was in great shape. He is also at the origin of the decisive break on Depoortère's try and the stroller on Coulon to put an end to this meeting, offering this first victory to Mayol for the UBB.

Matéo Garcia also delivered an excellent match, notably thanks to his skill on the feet. He scored 7 of his 8 attempts, failing only once... He was also very good in the game, with 67 meters gained and 75% of successful tackles (9 attempts). Precious.


The Welsh fly-half was not up to his usual level this Sunday evening. He made several attempts to attack the line without much success. Uninspired in his offensive animation, Biggar lacked precision. His kicking plays just before Fainga'anuku's second try are well executed, helping to score behind, but the shift might have made more sense by hand. Above all, it was in scoring that he did not meet his usual standards (4/6). Defensively, he only made two successful tackles for two missed ones.

The RCT back had a lot of difficulty passing against UBB (only 69% of successful passes in 9 attempts). He also lacked speed to come back to defend and tackle Depoortère in the final minutes to prevent him from scoring the winning try.

The UBB third row delivered a performance below its standards. He only succeeded in 62% of his attempted tackles (5/8) and was not as impactful as his teammate Antoine Miquel. Replaced by Gazzotti in the 54th.
