Toulouse-Pau: Lebel as savior, Toulouse's defensive generosity... The tops and the flops


The savior of Stade Toulousain. The winger scored the winning try in the last seconds of the match (78th) following a long and intense sequence in Haut-Garonne (3 min). The French international has always been incisive in these decisions, as evidenced by his 66 meters covered with the ball in hand.

That's it. Seven months later. The French international, who had suffered a serious knee injury before the World Cup, came on in the 57th minute of play, in place of Antoine Dupont, to the cheers of the red and black public. The opener did not wait long before making his mark. A few minutes after returning to Ernest-Wallon's pitch, the 24-year-old performed a little solo number of which he alone has the secret. Romain Ntamack has lost none of his splendor. The other (big) good news of the evening for the Toulouse residents, who had all the difficulty in the world to beat a solid and very enterprising Section Paloise.

Like the very good Béarnaise team of the evening, the young 19-year-old player splashed the meeting with his vivacity and his talent. The back scored a double (35th, 42nd) thanks to his thunderous speed. Clearly the most dangerous Pau player in the match. The Section cracker simply covered 163 meters with the ball in hand. Breathtaking. Attissogbé stands as the symbol of this Béarnaise team which was only a few seconds away from inflicting the first defeat on Toulouse on their land since the start of the season. A high class match.


Despite the victory, the Toulouse residents were very scared until the end. Ugo Mola's men conceded four tries and were seconds away from losing for the first time this season at home. The French champions, pushed to their limits, were in reaction this evening. A face not necessarily reassuring one week before welcoming Racing in the round of 16 of the Champions Cup.

As evidenced by the generosity and defensive blunders of the Stade this Saturday, the contentious action between Paul Costes and Lucas Tauzin which led directly to the fourth Pau try scored by Eliott Roudil in the 66th minute of play. A stupid and avoidable error which would have could have cost (very) dearly to the Haut-Garonnais...
